We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Star City Hotel. The room was just above a basic level, but clean and comfortable. We like the situation of the hotel, in the fact that it was a little off the beaten track, as this gave us the opportunity to enjoy the culture of the city and its residents. There was a... More

Generally the hotel is lovely, clean, smells nice, has a lovely lobby and a lot of informative information everywhere However, the room was boiling hot. We were forced to keep our window open at night (even in January, which caused a lot of noise?) because the heating was on so high. Our radiators were turned off when we requested however... More

The Star City has everything you need for a short break. The rooms have all the basic amenities and the breakfast has a reasonable selection of cold meats, breads, cereals and drinks. All but one of the staff that we met were very friendly, incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the city. If you want to spend the majority of your... More

It's outside the city centre but there's a good public transport system and getting downtown can be done with ease or on a nice day you could walk. Travellers over 65 ride free.

The location of the hotel is not to far from down town, which is great, and the value of money is good for what you get there. The corridors of the hotel and the rooms, in my opinion needs to be refurnished because it looks old and scratched. The recommendations and the help of the receptionist (especially Daniel), were great... More
