Stayed here overnight on 30th November. Chose this hotel for its central location - we were at a concert at the 02 Apollo.
The hotel has a 12pm check in/out, which was great. The staff on reception were very friendly and helpful - even telling us which bus to get to the 02 Apollo - which incidentally was incorrect! We got told to catch the 43 bus, on Princess Street. The bus driver on the 43 said we needed the 192, from the bus station, which we then walked back to.
Our room was spotlessly clean. The bathroom smelled strongly of bleach, which was obviously clean, but the smell at times was a bit overpowering. We did consider asking to change to a different room, purely due to the bleach smell.
The bed was comfortable enough. But the noise from the traffic outside, with sirens going off from either police cars or ambulances, along with the drunken shouting of late night revellers, gave me a restless nights sleep. I did actually have earplugs in, and still heard the noise outside!
Overall, a nice clean hotel, good location.
