We stayed here for one week. Had read previous TA reviews criticising the breakfast, the staff, the amenities etc so we were a little apprehensive as to what the stay would be like. Have to say that the first room we were allocated was next door to the lifts and so very noisy, mostly because other guests slammed the lift doors, but we were moved without fuss the next day.
Overall, we found the hotel to be clean, the staff friendly, the roof top pool area a super place to meet for a drink. On the downside, the breakfast was very basic, comprising cereals, bread, ham. cheese, fruit and yoghurt. No toast, no eggs. But there was enough of it. The rooms were small and rather hot as there was no aircon, but the windows opened and our rooms each had a fan.
The biggest plus point is the location of this hotel. It is so central you can walk to all the main touristy areas within ten minutes unlike many other hotels located on the outskirts where the views were good but you needed transport to get anywhere.
So if you are happy to have a hotel that is not luxurious but is clean, in a central location and where you do not want to spend a whole lot of time in your room, this is worthy of consideration.
