Excellent location, steps to train stations and major attractions. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. They provided free bottle waters, snacks and fresh fruit basket!! The room is clean and the beds are comfortable. There is a little lift which is good enough to take our luggages upstairs. The breakfast is not provided by the residence, but from a caffeteria...
