    No, there aren't any parking spaces at the hotel. Even pulling over to get all your things out would cause a lot of problems. X

    Hello, I am a little confused on the huge amount of contradiction I am reading on the current reviews for this hotel. I have stayed at many places all around the world including hostels. The majority of current reviews do not put this hotel in a good light but Your review was highly recommended, so can I ask, did you see new carpet on the stairways and was there any Chinese food smells present as I understand from some of the reviews the hotel is next to and also over a Chinese restaurant or two. Do you feel you got full value for money for the room you stayed in and would you stay at this hotel again. Kind regards Christian
