Several reviewers praised the hotel's staff. They were characterized as friendly, attentive, helpful, "knowledgeable about the entire city", and were reported to provide a quick check-in service.

The Bad

Several reviewers mentioned instances of noise transfer during their stay. They reported being able to hear neighbours in adjacent rooms talking and moving around, as well as footsteps overhead, and music from the on-site restaurant below.
