6/10 Good

Checking in was a problem because the automat did not issue my bill. Since I had not noted the room number, I had to phone. The immediate service was good. I was issued a new room number and key but it took 3 contact attempts before my invoice was emailed 2 weeks later. Room pleasant, with kettle. Covid test kit in room.

8/10 Very good

Convenient location for Supreme Court. Rooms pleasant and reasonable size. Brekfast was slightly problematic. I went up just before 8 and the juice dispenser was almost empty. I managed to scrape together the last portion of scrambled eggs. Although one could hear the staff talking in the back room, it was 20 minutes (I noted the time on my watch) before anyone came to replenish the container, so that the half dozen people who came after me had a limited choice.
