"I find it expensive for what it's worth....also, when we went in our room, we were 4 but there were only two towels. As well as there were only two pillows. But mostly I found it expensive, however, I would recommend it as the room was nice."

"Please take better care of your blue fish in its lonely jar on the counter. He needed a plant, a bigger space, more water, and food ... and especially some friends. I worried about him."

"The first night of our stay (saturday the 14th), there were young adults on our floor that were excessively noisy and out of control through all hours of the night, twice they knocked on our door loudly and once even entered our room. We slept very poorly on this night and were very tired for our sightseeing the next day. The staff however was pleasant enough."
