The hotel at first sight is very clean and tidy with a lovely reception and bright, clean dining area. It has a basic seating area in the lobby for meeting/waiting and has vending machines selling snacks and drinks including alcoholic drinks. Very clean toilets as well. The rooms are accessed via a lift or stairs.
The corridors leading to the rooms were very old fashioned and a little tired if I'm honest and it did make me worry slightly about what state the room would be.
The room was accessed via code number entry and once inside, I was disappointed to be welcolmed by the very distinct smell of stale cigarettes! The room was very basic in standard, which I had expected, but I did not expect the smell. The room was very clean and tidy but clean sheets and clean fittings do not cover the strong smell of cigarette smoke.
We also had a bit of an issue with the window in the room. The room had a bunk bed which was single on the top and double on the bottom. This room is let with couples with a child in mind, but quite frankly, I do not think these rooms are safe for children due to the window. It was roughly 3-4 foot square and was able to be opened fully like a door! This created a huge open area just above the dressing table top which was open to a sheer drop to the courtyard below. We were on the 7th floor so thought this to be very dangerous. However, as we had no children with us, we were glad of being able to open the window very wide as the weather was very hot and also to try to get rid of the stale smoke smell but alas, this was too well impregnated into the soft furnishings so it didn't help with that.
The hotel was very quiet through the night and we had no problems sleeping but for some reason, the quilt to cover the double bed was only just bigger than a single!!! Good job there was only one person in it and that it was hot weather otherwise this wouldn't have been practical!
The breakfast the next morning was very good value for money and had everything you would expect from a Continental breakfast. It was also served for a convenient amount of time so we didn't feel forced to get up too early!
Overall, a good place to stay if you don't mind cigarettes and only basic fittings.
