Exceptional 10.0
Solo leisure travel for 4 nights
i was a little unsure when booking this but I’m so happy I did. Yes the rooms are a little of the small side but everything else is done very well. The service was good and it has a very good location, easy access to two metro lines as well as the tourist friendly markets and shops. I would happily stay here again, thank you.
