We booked The Veteran over the phone a month in advance of New Year 2006/7. Leaving it that late we could not be too choosey and were grateful for what we were offered - especially once we saw the hotel's website.
However, it took a number of emails to confirm the booking - and on arrival we could see why...the 'coffeeshop' next door! The staff were friendly but a little stoned and it took 20mins to check in! The steep narrow stairs to our rooms, the one toilet and shower between approximately 11 people and the theft warnings were enough for us to decide to check out and risk somewhere else!
We are budget travellers and all we ask for is clean, secure and cheap. The Veteran is clean...but not secure and at 140Euro (New Year price) for a double room - not cheap.
