Would stay again!
This hotel was perfect for my needs. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and I felt very safe walking around in the area. There are no refrigerators or coffee in the rooms, but there is a cold water dispenser and coffee available in the lobby. Just on this block alone, there is a fantastic ramen bar, a great 24-hour diner, and a Starbucks. This hotel has everything you need if you’re looking for an affordable, convenient spot close to everything.

boutique hotel
For our stay, the hotel was a way station between 2 medical procedures. The room was very small, which was problematic while using the desk and chair. I think it might work better with the desk rotated 90 degrees against the adjacent wall, but I don't know if there is enough clearance without moving the bed. It would be nice to have access to any part of the room to any part of the room while someone was using the desk and chair while on the internet. The shower was terrific, but it was difficult to fumble around and understand the controls for the temperature vs. the pressure. Once understood, it worked like a first class shower. I had an early morning appointment and I wanted to be fairly bacteria free. There are so many fine eateries close by, that if you just need to eat and recycle your energy, this is a fine hotel

Terrific location
Excellent location. Hotel clean and comfortable. Decor a little old fashioned but homely. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Room was located at rear of hotel. Somewhat noisy with bins located in alleyway at back of hotel. The positives outweigh the negatives and would stay here again.

Reasonable accommodations
It was okay for the price. Good location with lots of attractions nearby. Older rooms with dated decor, but it was clean and everything mostly worked.

Crazy night
The city pick-up the trash Monday about 2 am, it tooks about 45 minutes to end this nightmare. I strongly recommend the hotel inform the clients or increase those windows at least triple and quadruple glazing/panel.
