We stayed here for two nights and I thought it was perfectly located. Only a five minute walk to the city mall. It's a lively street with great restaurants and pubs. The staff were kind and the room was bright, tidy and clean. There is also a nice outdoor area for BBQs. The manager there is great, she is passionate...
