Sight from our room
"Away from the street"
"Better choose room 201 202 because they have a wide shaddedbalcony, with exterior table. And better sight."
"We were in furthest from the road and heard no noise. I think we were in room 110 or close to it"
"Get a room away from the street to avoid noise, though there wasn't much."
"The building has three stories, but the top story doesn't go all the way round. The building is shaped like a U with the parking inside the U, but the third floor only goes part way. I don't know whether there is an elevator. We had a ground floor room in a corner as we asked for a quiet room."
US$62 - US$121 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
