"All the rooms are on the 2nd floor."
"Request a room at the end of the hall if you like to sleep in - rooms near reception can be loud with voices in the morning"
"Some rooms have tiny windows. Ask for a room with a full sized window."
"We were in Room 7, it was the best. No issues at all."
"We chose the larger room which was an end unit and very bright and sunny"
