          Sleepy Gecko was in a great location close to good restaurants, bars and shopping. It made getting around Melville extremely easy. The rooms were nice and the staff were very friendly. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

          Feeling quite happy with the staff who is working together and seem happy to. The location is ideal for a parisian who likes to walk to the shops and restaurants. Also the pets look happy and that alone is a good sight.
