Of all the hotels that I have stayed at this was the one which held the biggest concern for me on paper. However I found that whilst the surroundings are very industrial, for a business traveller it is an ideal location, there are shops nearby, and restaurants which is ultimately what I need from the location.
The room itself is small but isn't advertised any differently. It was comfortable and clean with good clean shower and toilet facilities. I found it to be quiet, I have seen other reviews saying it was noisy, not with the window closed. The rooms are individually air conditioned, and that adds to comfort particularly as it was a warmer evening.
The staff were helpful and efficient.
I paid for breakfast which was priced around £4.95. Which isn't cheap but you are not limited there are pastries, cereal, fruit, juices and hot drinks. Which for me was the perfect start and saved me hunting around for alternatives.
Overall good for the one or two night business stopover or for a family sleeping off a day of visiting local attractions.
