    Great location and very welcoming. Extremely friendly staff, shout out to Dylan who was very helpful. Lovely room and private bath. Breakfast food and service is great. Dinner menu wasn’t really to my personal tastes.

    The staff were incredibly helpful, arranging taxi service for me at the end of my stay and lending a hand when I had some confusion with my electronics. The location is amazing! I couldn't walk one block without stopping to admire the stonework...
