      Very poor noise insulation, no air conditioning and on top of that, no noise limitation after 11pm... We were forced to listen to the music a group of cards player had turned on for 2 hours, while someone played guitar right beneath our window... Very unsatisfied

    • Couple
      7.8

      The price and the location are excellent. All the bathroom were very clean and also the kitchen. I would stay there again.

      When we arrive the staff was very busy and they weren't so friendly.
