Friendly staff with excellent service. Special thanks to Sarah who offered help to print out a extremely important document without mentioning any charges. Location is right at Union Square, in the central of everything. Food, shopping and sight seeing is all nearby.

Wouldn’t stay here again
It’s a bed in a box no character to the room. The bedsheet had a old makeup stain, curtains had bleach stains, and bathroom curtain had stains too. Cleanliness was ok. Location is good. Service is average. I could hear everything the people above me were doing, not because they were loud, but because it’s an old building.

The room I stayed in had a private bathroom, a comfortable bed, and was very quiet. I could only hear street noise if I opened the window. The one issue I (kind of) had was the lack of an air conditioner meant I had to open the window and turn on the fan in order to cool the room.

Only con from the whole stay is that the room lacked air conditioning, although the ceiling fan worked alright.

Convenient location and friendly staff
Good location for being within walking distance of many shops, restaurants, and the Piers/harbours. Secured entrance during the evening hours for safe access and a rustic lobby. Very little noise pollution from outside with my room location. Had a lovely room with a comfortable bed and a private washroom that was clean and everything worked great. There was no allocated parking but there are a number of garages with varying rates within walking distance as well. Only had an issue with being located near another room that was going through a bathroom renovation starting on my 3rd day there and I usually went out during the afternoon so I heard everything from early hours. Overall, a decent stay.
