Lots of hotels to choose from but this is conveniently situated, very well run and a great choice if you don't want a really expensive place to stay. We had a lovely, large room above reception (no noise or disruptions) and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly, efficient staff. The hotel is close to shops, district six museums,... More

We had selected this place for a stay in 2013 and were so impressed that we took another couple with us in 2014. Centrally located, with friendly and caring staff - always with a smile, and good rooms with adequate facilities (including WiFi). Breakfast is excellent. The co-located but independent Italian restaurant is a treat and a hoot! We were... More

The property is old, the wind is blowing through windows on high floors. Breakfast selection is also average. The only thing one might like is it's central location if you have a buiness in CT downtown.

The location is not the most pretty one: popular but safe. Service is good with committed people. Rooms are spacious & clean. Good equipments. Wifi is fine except interruption sometimes. Included breakfast is awesome. Real good value for money.
