Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Location is excellent. Staff is really good and check in/out process was pretty smooth. Only issue is that the building is old hence the rooms are old as well which is expected hence the price. Their werent any toiletries in the bathroom except for one small soap hence its recommended to carry your own stuff.
