The toilet was not functioning. There was no one in engineering available at the time to fix the problem. On leaving a note behind for housekeeping, the issue remained unfixed when I returned to the room in the evening.
Close to park and museums. Neighborhood feel.
There really wasn't anything that was missing for us, would have liked a mini fridge, but honestly not a big deal.
Excellent location. We were upgraded to a queen suite which was a very pleasant surprise. Rooms were well maintained, bathroom very clean, beds were very comfortable. Check out time at noon was also welcome.
The facilities were closed for breakfast - would have been nice to know when booking.
