Stayed here Friday night. Checking in was quite slow. Went down the stairs to have something to eat. Noticeably cold and no atmosphere,food was shop deli style and not worth the money. Got some drinks in the bar and charged differently three times for the same drinks. Room was ok but hairs on under sheets of bed and bath clogged... More

Room seriously lacked in plugs, with none located near the beds. No air conditioning. Basic, overpriced dinner menu. Fire alarm sounded twice at about 4:30am. Also heard of other guests having issues with their room keys. However, had a very nice breakfast.

I booked a king executive room. It was tiny. The bed was big(ish) but the room was tiny, and the decor was so dated. The heat is constantly on and there is no way to turn it down. There was a nespresso machine in our room (no kettle) so when I wanted coffee the next morning this didnt work. There... More

We stayed here recently for a conference in the RDS. It is only a couple of minutes walk away. We would come back to hotel each day for lunch as it's so close rather than queue for lunch in the RDS.

First of all this was a very comfortable stay. Quiet. Comfy bed. BUT is it dated or traditional? Certainly the dining room for breakfast is very grand with friendly staff and I hear the grilled seabass is to die for. The room is a little heavy on the wood furnitute and to shower in a bath and a plastic shower... More

We stayed here as part of a Trafalgar tour group and it was one of my favorite hotels we stayed in. The architecture seemed very historic and it was in good condition. This trip was actually our honeymoon and we both had a great time. The hotel staff was extremely nice and helpful, especially the night my wife had a... More
