The location is very very good. The lobby nice and the rooms ok. At first i was given a room faced to the internal courtyard but a i walked to the room i heared some loud noise coming behind the window. Some big probably airconditioning system was working very loudly. Also the room was kind of dark. I went downstairs and they changed my room. The new one was nice - window to the street - there was more light and during the day some noise as well but during the night ok. The room was quite big and airy. Beds nice. Not very clean - hair on the bathroom floor and some handmarks on the mirror. Also quite dusty and i almoust stepped on the rusty nail on the floor. Anyway I think you pay for the location there and the room is decent. The administrators were helpful and professional.
So if they demanded more from the cleaning personell it would be good choice.
