We were very satisfied with our stay at Life on 3rd. The breakfast had so many options, which were all delicious. Our room was clean, stylish, and comfortable. Most importantly, the service was fantastic. Damian was so helpful and treated us so nicely. Thanks for a great visit!

Great value, nicely appointed rooms, great overall, but take note that some of the rooms have the toilet in the same room as the bed - might be a little too "intimate" for some couples or co-travelers!
