8/10 Very Good

It was affordable and comfortable, but good luck if you need towels or toilet paper. No one is ever in the reception, and the maid is only there very briefly each morning. They also could have done a better job on cleaning/ changing the sheets before we got there. Overall though it was a good and very affordable choice, and it’s literally right next to a bus stop and downtown so that’s very convenient. Definitely a great budget option.
