We loved the location and the view. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. My only issue was having to use the stairs in the morning, I have limited mobility and found the elevator wasn't on until later than what was stated.

Great location. Great kitchen facilities. Family room - great view. Compact but functional room size. Good heating in room as it was very cold overnight - outside -2. Some road work was being done on the streets surrounding but it was halted in the evenings, no noise in the room from this.
