As the title suggest the location is the key here! Let me start by saying if I am on a city break the hotel is used for sleeping and showering! I wouldn’t be one to spend hours reading, watching TV, or surfing the net in my room. If you are one that does then this hotel (or this room!) wouldn’t suit you.
The room we were allocated was very small, I had booked a standard twin as a friend and I were travelling. The room was very very small with two rather narrow single beds pushed together, the pillows were more cushion like than pillows, however it was still comfortable. We had a small bathroom with sliding door, bath & super powerful shower just the thing to wake you up in the morning, no frosted windows as described in previous posts. We were given a room at the back of the hotel, when the window was open it was noisey but when closed I couldnt hear a thing!
The foyer and halls were clean and tidy and while the décor is a little outdated in the bed room we were allocated.
The staff were polite and friendly and they gave us a map of the city and how to get where with what tram or train, we walked everywhere though. Also there was free wifi in the hotel that came in really hand when we used our iphone to map out our next destination.
I can’t comment on the food here as I didn’t have breakfast there is a bakery up the road where I got croissants - come out of the hotel and go right - and a juice bar on your next right!
This hotel is very close to Seasons restaurant, its two/three blocks at the back of the hotel, I would most definitely recommend Seasons it was fantastic, but that’s a whole other review!
I don’t know if I would stay here again or suggest this hotel, purely because of the price. They would need to re-evaluate their pricing structure for their smaller rooms. On a location note, then I would suggest you stay here but be prepared for small living arrangements!
