I was surprised and impressed at just how nice and easy it was. My one complaint is that there was no noise control after the lights out period and I happened to stay on a night when there was a bus load of Japanese teenage girls who were chatting, giggling and screaming well into the late hours. That only happened on one night -- the rest of my stay was fine.
