Latest Review

" Decent quality rooms in a great location quite close to the main attractions (only 1 or 2 metrorail stops). The staff is friendly and helpful (would even print out my plane tickets for me, thanks!) and some guests are longterm guests that are very communicative and like to help you out with tipps on where to go or eat.
