Despite friendly and well-trained staff, this stay was disappointing. Windows that didn’t lock, awkward room configurations, not-quite-clean housekeeping and worse, a disquieting sense of insecurity,made this a less than good stay.More

Hi We didn't notice any noise but we tended to be out all day and then back to the hotel to sleep.
