I have recently stayed here for 4 nights with 3 of my friends, after reading the other reviews we were a bit apprehensive about coming! Our room was on the ground floor, easy access, perfect location right in the middle of everything like the red light district and madam tussauds and 2 minute walk from central station!

We just visited for a couple of drinks, nice big tables, comfy seats, good drinks which are not too extortionate and a big screen which was showing football (zzzz) when we were there. It seemed slightly odd that people were checking in to the rooms at the bar, but not a major problem. There was a nice affectionate cat wandering... More

stayed for 3 nights and met all our expectations. The service was very friendly and professional. Good selection at the bar and clean tidy room. The only food available is breakfast but with a wide selection of resturants within seconds not an issue. This not our first or last visit..

The hotel is just across the road from central station, the twin room was small and basic but clean. We only needed somewhere to sleep and the location was perfect for walking around the centre of the red light district.

I found this hotel was better than i was expecting. Rooms where clean, beds surprisingly comfy, adequate soap, shower and toileteries etc + TV. The location is spot on too.

Very small but clean rooms and comfortable enough. Single glazed windows though, the bin men and road sweepers will wake you up. Smells of cigarette smoke in corridors. Shower was good. Breakfast not bad.
