Met expectations
Overall, a pleasant stay. Room was slightly bigger in comparison to some of the other hotels in the area, some guests mentioned the toilet water running during their stay and I found that if you just flush it again, it typically rectified the situation. The terrace is quite small, so head up there and reserve your spot or you'll be out of luck. The lobby was a great place to work with good wifi. The front desk staff weren't overly friendly, but they weren't unpleasant either. All in all, pleasant and would recommend.

Ok stay. Noisy toilet
The hotel was nice. The room was clean, but the toilet sounded like it was flushing all by itself on and off. It was either that, or anytime another toilet flushed, it would flush.
