“Nothin wrong with it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

I have recently stayed here for 4 nights with 3 of my friends, after reading the other reviews we were a bit apprehensive about coming!

Our room was on the ground floor, easy access, perfect location right in the middle of everything like the red light district and madam tussauds and 2 minute walk from central station!

We had clean towels everyday and the tv had family guy. Walk in shower AND a bath with built in bubble machine like a little hot tub, all 4 of us fit in it at 1 point.

It's not a 5 star hotel but it's amazing value for money, all the basics like always having hot water.

We were a group of 4 girls and felt perfectly safe here. Don't let the fact u have to leave your suitcase in the kitchen before check-in put u off. It's just abit rough and ready, like all of the central area!

Pleased with it :)

We just visited for a couple of drinks, nice big tables, comfy seats, good drinks which are not too extortionate and a big screen which was showing football (zzzz) when we were there. It seemed slightly odd that people were checking in to the rooms at the bar, but not a major problem. There was a nice affectionate cat wandering around the bar. Reminded me of a good ol' English boozer and I would return.

stayed for 3 nights and met all our expectations. The service was very friendly and professional. Good selection at the bar and clean tidy room. The only food available is breakfast but with a wide selection of resturants within seconds not an issue. This not our first or last visit..

The hotel is just across the road from central station, the twin room was small and basic but clean. We only needed somewhere to sleep and the location was perfect for walking around the centre of the red light district.

Room Tip: We had to walk up 3 flights of steep winding stairs to our room, not suitable for those who have dif...

I found this hotel was better than i was expecting. Rooms where clean, beds surprisingly comfy, adequate soap, shower and toileteries etc + TV. The location is spot on too.

The main problem with this hotel was the noise. We possibly got a room in a bad spot (Second floor at the front of hotel) but sleeping became very difficult. Other guests moving around to go the toilet or up and down the stairs (Passing our room) was very loud. On top of this, the noise from outside was even worse with the mixture of what I assume where delivery trucks to local businesses in the early hours, general traffic from the nearby road and numerous people walking past below made it difficult to get a few hours sleep, nevermind a much needed sobering lie in after a night of drinking.

The second main issue was the heating was barely never off and even turning the radiator down didn't stop us either suffering the uncomfortable heat, or opening a window to be met with even worse noise from outside.

I would stay at this hotel again but bring a quality pair of earplugs and a room towards the back of the hotel.

Room Tip: I would imagine rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter
