Good 6,0
Good, not great
Mouldy smell in room Shower door not closing properly - leaking water onto floor Very noisy room - understandable based on location. Did not bother me, but may concern others. Toiletpaper used to seal windows Some of the blinds need some care Overall room quality good at the price paid wad acceptable. The employees are friendly. The room served its purpose. For the area the price was very good and the room not in a horribl shape, but it does need a bit of maintenance
