    I would say our stay was pretty average. Our room had a funny smell and the beds weren't the most comfortable, but the breakfast was pretty good!

    Worth it.

    Good location at walking distance from main attractions and eatery. The breakfast manager from Bangladesh is a Star - welcoming, presentative and surely proud about his job which is well done.

    Nice place. Just a wrinkle to resolve.

    I was somehow charged $30.69US for breakfast when it was supposed to be included on the reservation. I have contacted the hotel to try to resolve the mistake.
