I had issues at check-in. For some reason, they didn't have me in their system. But they were able to rectify this, and gave me an upgraded room for the night. The staff were friendly and gave me good recommendations on where to eat and how to get around. The wifi is terrible in the rooms. I could not use it because the signal was too weak. I hope they improve this in the near future. Overal, this is a good hotel minus their wifi.

Good location and walking distance to everything. Not the most glamorous place and outdated rooms. Bed sheets kinda old. Firm bed which I like. Price is a bit high for condition of building. But, you pay for location.
