The hotel was more of a glorified hostel. The smell in the place was horrible, musty n sweaty smells. Beds had bedbugs. The room was covered in dead bodies of squashed mosquitoes where ppl had been killing them. My aunt got bite 21 times by mosquitoes. Her face swell out the whole holiday. The ceiling in our room was very... More

Came to this hotel in early september with two of my friends, we were looking for somewhere to stay which was a reasonable price and found this which was better than reasonable (£200 for 3 people for 3 nights) so we were unsure what to expect and were amazed by value for money. Although slightly out of the city, we... More

My fiancé and I had stayed at this hotel in 2012, when it was still called the Hem Hotel...for us, this stay was even better than the first. (Obviously, I can only comment on our room etc.) Since we had been in the past, the TVs had been upgraded to wall-mounted HD flat screens, which was a nice surprise. As... More

Hotel near the centre and near the tram line. We chose this one because in August was one of the cheaper hotel but the room was dirty, the lift arrived only till the 3rd floor (we were in the 4th floor).... so if you stay there only few days it's ok but if you want to stay one week I... More

I was worried to book because of negative feed back responses, however, my family experience was so good. Pros: -very big room, newly refurbished. -Clean room. -friendly staff. -two elevators. -very large parking. -good price. Cons: -smoking smell so strong. -neighbourhood is not good. -very early checkout. Generally we have enjoyed our stay and will recommend the hotel. -

The room generally had a damp smell and every morning I would wake up with fresh bites. More and more everyday. The service was good and the 24hr food is very helpful. It would have been ideal for price and location if it wasnt for the bites.
