"Noisy, but Overall Pretty Good"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 18, 2019 NEW
This was a very cute boutique hotel that’s centrally located in the city, which makes it a quick Lyft ride to most places. The staff was very friendly, the live music and wine every evening was really nice, the rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. This is an older building, so the noise is a bit of an issue. You can hear people talking, doors closing, toilets flushing, etc. And our room was facing the street, so there was the occasional siren, as well. But if you bring some ear plugs, you’ll sleep just fine! We came on a holiday weekend, and got a pretty good rate compared to everything else in the city, so all things considered, this was a great litttle hotel!

"The hotel is great but its very communal"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

The hotel is very welcoming, the staff is fantastic and the food at the restaurant was good. The rooms are clean and well maintained, the only draw back is the walls are as thin as paper and you can hear everything from the other rooms. Literally everything, I will leave you to interpret what you will from that.

"Old and small room, rude staff"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed February 15, 2019 NEW
My colleague and I stayed here for a week while attending a conference. Our experience with the hotel was terrible - the room was very old and the bathroom was so small, had no AC, and the heater only ran a couple of hours at night, so it was extremely cold. The restaurant was supposed to open at 7am, but the chef did not even show up at 7, and the waitress was extremely rude. We tried to bring these problems up with the front desk, and the only answer we got was that he couldn’t do anything about it because he was there alone. Overall, awful facilities with incompetent staff that don’t care enough to provide even the most basic of customer service. I’m so disappointed,wouldn’t stay here again, ever.
