We stayed for two nights. It was so so loud. One night was because of people drinking on the property. And the second was because of the night club right next door. It's a great location, only if you want to be partying on Florida St until the early morning.

Good Day. I am sorry that you found the location noisy. If we had known about it we could have moved you to a quieter area of the hotel. We hope you pay us another visit so that we can rectify this.

"It is easy to access."
"Ask for a room away from the noise of Florida Road"
"If you're a REALLY quiet sleeper. Best to choose a room opposite the road from the road. It's a busy street."
"Avoid front rooms as road quite noisy"
"If you are looking for a quiet room request one at the back of the hotel"
