We stayed between Christmas and new year, myself, wife and two young sons, the hotel was exactly what we looking for, good location, good fresh breakfast , comfy beds and friendly service, only complaint being the squeaky floors above, but for a quad room for 3 nights at £170 a bargain

This hotel is by far one of the worst I have ever stayed in and I have travelled to many third world countries with better accommodation. Try and get a room with three numbers instead of two and you can be assured of a room that does not throw you out of the window if you bend down. The sockets... More

I have been to many hotels and this hotel is the worst I have visited.Entering through a dark smelly bar to go upstairs to reception you have a lift which holds two people which constantly cuts out and you have to wait and restart it.I was allocated room 11 Arno .TV was missing and cables hanging out a ragged hole...

This hotel has smoking rooms also on street parking . The staff at the hotel are fantastic but it ended there, the hotel is in the middle of the city the rooms are very small and really needed to be updated we were on the 7th floor and as we came out of the lift the fire door was blocked... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights and became very ill with major stomach cramps and vomiting which is very unusual for me. Not very inviting from the outside since you have to enter via a dark bar . Beware because the receptionists are mostly barmen and dont care about the hotel. They saw me waiting for my key... More

This establishment really deserves no stars. Tiny rooms, broken stairwell bannister, old uncomfortable beds. The hotel stinks of smoke. Our room stank of smoke. It's beyond belief that this hotel has any star rating. I slept in my clothes. Our bathroom made me feel dirty. I won't put any defamatory remarks on this review but it did not meet any... More

This hotel had a quirky feel to it with stars from the movies painted on the room doors. The double room was 'compact' but clean and functional enough for our one night stay. The breakfast was 'continental' but there was plenty of it in the self service buffet. The bar was welcoming and had a great jukebox. Didn't eat in... More

For a few euros more than a hostel you can have a private room with a good bed. One side of the hotel has been upgraded and is quite nice, the second part is the older hotel, which is not as nice but still more than ok for the price you pay. The bar downstairs is open 24/7. If you... More
