The Bad
While the majority of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few complaints about the free breakfast and noise transfer.

While the majority of reviewers were satisfied with the hotel's free breakfast, some guests were disappointed and described it as having a limited variety with no hot items. These guests also reported the breakfast room as too small (3 tables) and crowded.
