Very dusty with last occupants rubbish in the bin and down back of bed. Sheets not big enough to cover mattress (very frustrating).Staff friendly and professional. Location not great. 20... More

From the outside, this hotel doesn't look particularly nice but once you enter inside it gets a lot better. Staff on the front desk have very good English and are rather friendly, check in and check out was very swift and they gave out great advice. We booked the room with 3 single beds and it turned out the room... More

The hotel was booked as part of a package so I'm not sure how much we paid. It was described as four star but three would be closer. Comfortable, clean with all the amenities but if you are expecting something like the ones on the current advertising campaign then you will be disappointed. The staff were very helpful especially with... More

Any motel (not hotel) would've been better than this hotel. It's outdated and needs lots of work. Pros: friendly staff, very nice and willing to advise on local scenes. Reasonably priced. Cons: old, bad location, no hair dryer, no iron, uncomfortable bed, old & thin towels. Would recommend paying a little more for a better location & amenities.

The hotel was really good value for money. There were six of us in three rooms and none of us were disturbed by noise etc. We arrived very early on the first day and the staff kindly made us coffee while we waited. They also checked us in early...as soon as the rooms were ready. The breakfast was lovely. I... More

20 minutes by tram from center, dusty room, no fridge, good mattress, good wi-fi, pc with printer in the lobby, quite neighbourhood, a little expensive, definitely not a 4-star hotel, smell in the corridor, late make-up of the room.

My mother and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, I really wish we had stayed longer! It cost us £99 each for the 2 day break with flights included. The room was extremely clean, beds were made and towels were replaced each day. We had forgotten shampoo and shower gel, the staff were very helpful and provided them... More
