Garred, 2-night family trip
Verified guest review

6/10 Good

The hotel is well positioned and modern. It is clean and updated to today's standards. The staff was nice. The issues i encountered are temporary but, relevant for the next few months. Upon arrival, someone checking out was complaining about some noise and the effect it had on their family's stay. I was early, left my bag and came back later to check in. I was informed they upgraded me, which sounded good, however, the room was on the first floor above the street. The street is closed off to traffic and is quiet... However, the entire building, facade included next door, touching the room where I was staying was undergoing a serious gut renovation with heavy drilling, with work beginning at 7am. So the upgrade makes sense - to put someone paying for a double room in that would have cause great disappointment to anyone paying more. However, what i think they did not anticipate is the disappointment and inconvenience it also causes anyone staying in that room, even if they are paying the rate of a single room. If you are staying here through what looks like the fall of 2023, a higher room on the east and north side of building will be quieter. Anything on the west and south will be in earshot of the construction noise.

Really great option. Location was more than amazing. But could hear a lot footsteps on the room above. It might be quite annoying if you are sensible sleeping. Although, this didn't impact my experience and I would totally recommend this hotel, as I'll be coming back. :)
