Price and location worth the subtle disappointment

Great location. Friendly staff. Good wifi. Loud location of my room next to the front desk and the street. The toilet was almost on top of the side wall - this should be remedied. Floor needed cleaning, but the other items in the room appeared clean. Overall good stay due to the low price and location.
