    Mrs BERTINA L C
    Seeking and wanting a private room at a very inexpensive rate for roughly about 3 nights or perhaps 7 night stay. I would like to pay upon arrival(just being cautious) for uncertain of actual travel dates in February 2017. I love to walk for meditation and I need to know is there criminal activities to worry about? I'm not into the nightlife of bars nor club scenes, are there any after hours late night loudness of noise around the rooms? I thank you kindly.
