    Friendly staff but average hotel.
    Staff were very friendly and accommodating but the hotel was dirty and run down. Had to change room as lights and shower was broken and it was dirty. The 2nd room was better but there were hairs on my bed. They were doing renovations so dust everywhere plus we booked it because of the rooftop bar but that was closed too. I won’t be looking to stay there again.
