Everything I expected. Great location, room was clean, and staff was super friendly.

Nothing wrong with the staff or the cleanliness but I asked for a luminous room. I understand this request are only met if available but I was given a room with a window to a small patio so I could not even see what the weather condition was like outside. No light at all. The machine outside only has sugary drinks, beer or plain water. No diet coke, which for someone with dietary needs (diabetes) is not on. But well, I got drinks outside, plenty of shops. Bed was quiet uncomfortable and the pillow a brick. Impossible to sleep with all the noise coming from loud cleaning staff, other guests banging doors, noises from other rooms... and works going on in the building. I guess you get what you pay for.

We were put in the handicapped room, which had a roll in shower. That was, honestly, the only complaint and it's hardly a complaint at all. It is 7 flights up, and the elevator is slow/up a handful of stairs so if you have accessibility issues be aware of that. The front desk staff were helpful, and spoke good English. We had no problems checking in, or getting our questions answered. The view was amazing, though. And the rooms clean and comfortable. Our room was cleaned daily, though they did throw away some sample packets of face wash my friend brought with her to use.
