    Very good service by the staff overall. Bathroom wasn’t the best. And breakfast wasn’t great but they had a different system due to COViD but overall I was happy. The friendly and helpful staff made it a good stay

    I like that the property is steps away from all the museums. Unfortunately, my room did not have a view. The place is clean and although it is listed as a non smoking property, I did smell smoke a few times inside. Overall this property is very good and very close to attractions.
