    Ease of access to all city transport and sights. Good value for $$ in the restaurant/bistro with efficient and quick service. Very helpful reception staff. No outside noise from the city filtering in :)

    Thin walls inside the building allow you to hear what is happening when people are louder than usual in rooms across the hall.
