The rooms are small. Can be more neat and tidy. One of the lamps was broken, the dustbins were rustic and broken. Few electrical sockets were loose. Cupboard / drawers were not clean.They give complimentary snacks in room. Instead they could give one or two bottles of mineral water. There is no complimentary pick-up / drop to / from Airport....

This is good hotel at the city centre. The place was little noisy but it was still cheerful. Staff service was good. Rooms were also luxurious. The basement of The Samilton is a great place to enjoy a good time.
