Everything about this hotel was great except that room service is provided by a local cafe and arrived in plastic takeaway containers. The food was ok but I was expecting a meal with real plates etc. Not what I expected.

Stayed here to take the USMLE Step 2 CS exam. It's about a 5 min walk from the testing center. Unfortunately, the power and water went out overnight but the hotel did refund all guests for what they paid for the night's stay.
