Great Location. The building, particularly the inside is very dilapidated, in places dirty. Reception is essentially a dinning room table with a laptop and an ash tray. If you want to feel like your back at uni sleeping round your mates after a monster party, with smoke everywhere, then this is probably the place for you. I'm pretty sure the... More
