We had a short stop over night before leaving very early the next day (5:30am). It was clean and comfortable however the shower dripped constantly and this kept me awake. I ended up putting face washers in the base of the shower to deaden the noise. It was a very quiet neighbourhood and the Indian restaurant right next door was delicious.
