"Spring for a garden room if you want some level of quietude."
"It seems all rooms are by the street, it is in the middle of the city but did not seem a problem."
"Best rooms not looking the streets quieter"
"Do not choose the rooms next to the lobby, you hear all the people arriving and the vehicles entering."
"rooms overlooking courtyard & gardens are quiet & spacious."
