    noisy as outside the traffic and the train are very loud due to room giving directly to external area, the breakfast display was poor and unattended.....central location is good, as there is no lift we needed to carry bags up 3 floors...no good!

    Hello!!! Yes, we have a parking available although it has a cost $12 per day. But we also have one space in our property, and if it is available for the nights you need we can reserve it for you free of charge.
