3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Hotel staff perfectly were nice, however the interrogation at the front door for every single entry is a bit ridiculous, but appreciate this is just hotel policy. Room was clean although the towels were all stained. Wifi was virtually non existent, and you can hear the next room's conversation word for word. All the doors slam and are awkward to close, not for the light sleeper. Can't say I'd stay again for the same price.
