          Most other hotels are in bad areas crime is rampant and no bathtub and the shower set up is impractical. The Periscope couldn't have been a better choice.

          The room was a little bit small and there was no place to leave anything in the bathroom, the receptionist informed us that was set for the whole floor and could not be adjusted.
