The hotel is clean with a very convenient location. The staff is very helpful. We arrived before noon and were able to get a room early. Also the noon checkout time is very convenient. The rooms are small but the bed is very comfortable. Their is no dresser or place to put clothes and the hanger space is quite limited. The main counter is quite filled with liquor and snacks that are for sale, so one really only has the bed stand as an open surface to put things on, but the light on the bed stand did not work. The is no information in the room on hotel services. We only found out about a restaurant by asking at the front desk and then getting directions (there is no signage). The bathroom light above the sink did not work and in the shower it was difficult to control the water temperature. The lobby are is quite nice with plenty of room. It looks like an old fashioned men's club with a fireplace, a bookshelf and several chairs. Some people had drinks and food brought in, others worked on their computers in this room.

Chistian stole the show
