The Good
Many guests enjoyed their stays at this hotel and the location and staff were the highlights. 

They found it well located near to shopping and dining, the train station and Metro stops, all in walking distance. 

They found the rooms updated, clean and spacious and well equipped with mini-fridges and microwaves, all for a very reasonable price.

Breakfast was free and added to the savings for guests, it was hot and many seemed to appreciate it.

Guests liked the staff, who they considered very friendly, prompt at check in and welcoming.

The Bad
The hotel is older, but has been recently upgraded. It has minimal facilities on site and some of the common areas still need a little touching up or maintenance with some amenities not working well.

The hotel is situated in a somewhat sleezy area of Crescent Street, according to guests with a lot of construction going on next door.

It seems that the main weak point though, is the noise in the surrounding area, which guests blamed on the nearby bars, that partying people spilled out of until 2 am, making it difficult for some to sleep. Others did not like smelling smoke in the hotel, from marijuana and hashish, which at times filtered into their rooms.

Although some guests enjoyed the free breakfast, there were some guests who felt it was the typical uninspiring hotel breakfast. The breakfast room is small and some guests brought food back up to their rooms.

Wi-Fi received some criticism as well, with some saying it had a weak signal and they had to reconnect.
