6.8 Okay
Pros:Convenient location for work
Cons:Very noisy at night on weekends and the rooms are too warm. You have to keep the windows open or room is too hot. Breakfast is dry and tasteless and overpriced
8.0 Very good
Cons:Showers are only 2’x2’ which is quite small for my large American body. HVAC could be improved. Lots of noise some nights from the young people after the local clubs close.
6.2 Okay
Pros:Basic but good facilities
Cons:Very impersonal service
10.0 Wonderful
Cons:More electrical outlets for charging stuff would be nice
