"If your room is in the 50s/60s, it's a really long walk and 4 flights of stairs to get to it."
"The higher floors away from Reception are probably quieter"
"I had a room on the second floor at the end of a corridor which was very quiet."
"Dont have room 143"
"Ask for a view - I didn’t and got a view of a wall and a rooftop"
US$161 - US$304 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
