This was my first time staying in shared accommodation. Fish Tail has privacy curtain, individual charging station and light with a shelf and locked storage area. I would highly recommend.

Nice room on side street. Great restaurants all around. Very comfortable. My room was away from others, so can't comment on noise levels. Breakfast was pretty bare, but sufficient.
