A student residence most of the year, this "hotel" is really only open to the public from May to mid August. It does little or nothing to market itself. Evident by the fact that we had to hound Google to find very limited information on it .. and ultimately called the "hotel" to learn more. We were simply looking for a relatively inexpensive, clean, quiet and comfortable bed to sleep for the night... and here we found it.
What does it offer? A hotel room that is probably best described in the manner in which it was presented to us upon our arrival by its lone attendant and security guard - "deep cleaned but quiet and basic". True to its word. Rooms are spacious and bare bone in the manner in which they are decorated. Each room features two double beds - prominently and noticeably raised - to support student storage of personal effects the other 9 months of the year; two solid wood student desks; two upright, solid wood clothes cupboards reversed but abutting each other so at to also serve as a room divider. Don't expect to find a television. Don't expect to find a room telephone working (even though there is one). Do expect to find more than adequate air conditioning.
