Very Good8.0
Super value
Great value if looking for a quiet, clean, comfortable, and convenient spot. Each room's patio/ balcony is angled and off-set to create a nice private outdoor space. The interiors are spacious and tastefully furnished for the price. Bathrooms are a bit clumsy, as ours was three separate rooms, but they work fine. Only 2 short blocks to both the lakefront and CBD. The place doesn't look like much from the exterior, but it's a gem for the price. Our room was number 4 upstairs looking out onto the park.
