This is a noisy, hotel that stinks of cigarettes and seems to be inhabited by those with no will left to live. Stay here if you must, but I'd recommend putting in a few hours of overtime and paying for somewhere a little less depressing.

Echoing the previous review, no idea how this is bottom of the list. If you're used to and after 5 star accommodation then this place probably isnt the place for you, but tbh i don't think it claims to be.
