Need to improve your wifi. Almost impossible to work effectively with how inconsistent the connection is. Windows don’t close properly and with the amount of street sound makes for an uncomfortable sleep

8/10 Very good

It has a great location and it was easy to get around to different places (walking, taxi, etc.). Breakfast/food in general was excellent & everything was reasonably priced. However the Wi-Fi in the room does not work, so I would recommend anyone staying there to buy/bring a Sim to use for data. The amenities were also slightly disappointing, as the spa and gym have very limited resources but the staff & service were generally accommodating (e.g. 24/7 room service). I would stay there again.
