we stayed for 1 week in a Queen room with shared bathroom. The location of the hotel is excellent, the room was quiet (2nd floor towards the back) and fun as it was decorated by a street artist. The room was a little bit on the small side and although the shared bathroom was clean, I would probably pay the extra for en-suite next time. The breakfast is a bit poor, mainly bagels and muffins available in a tiny room where you can sit 4 people (you have take it to your room basically). But apart from that, it was fine.

We really enjoyed the hotel. We loved our room!!Not the run of the mill beige walls with floral bedspread. Our only complaint was that our room was at the front of the hotel and we could hear the road noise plus the garbage truck several nights in the early (before 5:00 a.m.!)hours. The windows rattled a bit. Other than that, we had no complaints. Would stay there again.

Poor breakfast served in a normal room. No breakfast room with tables, just trays. You have to eat stand up or on your knees. Elevator is from the benning of the century and the ladie at frontdesk at night is rude. I'll never return to this place and no recomend for my friends.
