6/10 Good

Downtown stay
The room was clean and mattress was nice. Everything was fine, except the shower curtain smelled strongly of mildew. The smell was so strong that we slept with the bathroom exhaust fan on all night and the bathroom door closed. Other than this strong odor, everything else was fine.

Good quiet location on the edge of the old City/tourist area. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend it and would stay there again when in that area.

4/10 Fair

Juste pour une nuit
Dans La cuisine commune le four était sale le frigo et surtout un voisin n arrêtait pas de cracher et vomir et vu l épaisseur des murs aucune intimité. Pour une ou deux nuits ça va avec la salle de bain personnel mais pas pour une semaine. Par contre l accueil était très agréable et il était très réactif.
