"Request for ground floor /rooms not facing the road (could hear the sound of vehicles)."
"The garden view is not a real garden but it is still better than the street as it could get a bit noisy."
"Wifi issue must be resolved. Dont think anyone will accept a poor wifi these days."
"Spend a bit more and get the heritage rooms on the ground floor. Well worth it. "
"I think it is fine. "
