We had a couple of nights here and enjoyed our time.
The room set up with the bathroom & sleeping area all in one isn't ideal if you're not a couple but the rooms have everything you need & the hotel has a good bar & restaurant scene as does the melrose arch precinct. We felt safe in the area.
The real problem is that it's quite noisy if you're trying to sleep. Plenty of partygoers making noise in the hallways returning from the late night bars... So if you're looking for fun stay there, if you're looking for peace & quiet maybe not!
Although too cold when we were there the pool area looked like an inviting place to hang in the warmer months.
