Convenient location but nothing more
we just slept the night and left by 7am. No AC in the room, we had to sleep with the windows open in a thunderstorm night. Location was very convenient and close enough to the train station.

Very Good8.0
cheap and close to transport
My room was covered in cleaning perfume, so I needed to open the windows for a while. Definitely a smoker friendly place, but my room had no smell of it from the perfume thing. Great view, great price, working wifi.
