Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We are very sorry to hear that you had difficulty sleeping during your stay. We will look into the issues you mentioned (i.e. heating noise and music) to see what we can do to improve in those areas. Otherwise, we do offer rooms on the upper level, away from the street, which can help minimize the sound from the street/train. Please feel free to reach out to us directly if you have anything else to share. We can be reached at info@rubymarie.com. Thanks again.
