The Good
The majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive with much praise going to the hotel's staff, location and rooms.

Many guests praised the hotel's staff, characterizing them as welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful with dining recommendations and directions. One guest remarked, "It's amazing how friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and flexible the owner and staff are".

The hotel's location was a source of many compliments by reviewers. They described it as within walking distance to the Metro, St. Catherines Street, many restaurants, bars and shops, as well as a 24-hour supermarket.

Several lodgers were pleased with their rooms during their stay. They found their rooms to be spacious, bright, well-furnished, beautifully decorated and clean.

The Bad
While the majority of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of complaints about sharing a bathroom and the self-serve breakfast.

Some guests found that sharing a bathroom with other patrons was an inconvenience. They describing not having enough hot water for showers at times, as well as not being able to use the bathroom in a timely fashion. These guests recommended possibly spending the extra money for a room with an ensuite bathroom.

A few reviewers complained about the hotel's "self-catered" breakfast. They felt disappointed with some of the pre-packaged items offered, and also recounting running out of certain items like milk because of the amount of guests partaking.
