"Great stay for work and relaxation."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The hotel was clean. I loved my room; the set up was very conducive for my work from home + relaxation time. Lots of food provided for breakfast. The staff were friendly and professional. Lots of food provided for breakfast. It was quiet; I don't know if there were other guests in the rooms beside mine. In terms of health and safety precautions at this time: They were taking safety precautions e.g. staff wearing gloves and hand sanitizers at the front desk. The breakfast room set up made it easier for physical distancing. The one time I met other guests in the breakfast room, we each were conscious of respecting each others space. Cleaning staff asked at the door if you needed any cleaning otherwise they didn't enter the room. I put my garbage just inside my the door and they picked it up, no problem. I enjoyed short walks from the hotel to the canal or to pharmacy and grocery store in the neighbourhood. I enjoyed my stay.
