8/10 Very good

Spotlessly clean, few amenities, and odd plumbing
The place had few amenities, but my room was spotlessly clean. The bathroom fixtures were odd. The shower (no bath) had (I counted) a complicated fixture with 12 places streaming out water and a confusing number of knobs. It took awhile to figure out out how to turn on shower and change temperature, but it worked and was pleasant after overcoming the learning curve. The faucet on the sink would shoot water all over the counter if turned on at highest stream. The toilet was fussy and didn't have sufficient force to flush without holding down valve (and even then it seemed likely to clog). I didn't realize that coffee was available in lobby until my last day of stay. The room was quiet. I didn't try the TV, but there was one. I would stay there again.

Comfortable and well-located / small and no-frills
The price and location were good. The room itself was a bit small, but it had a very large accessible bathroom with a deluxe shower that had many sprays. It is comfortable for a solo traveler or a couple for a short stay but it lacks amenities like a coffeemaker and a fridge. My room had no view but a good AC unit that kept it cool.

Amazing service, great price, decent location!
This place was amazing... I had amazing check in super early with no extra cost. Yes the rooms are a little old but very clean and super comfortable. Wifi was great, no issues with the elevators as well. Good water pressure in shower, room cleaned daily and absolutely zero issues.
