The location was excellent, it's close to the city centre, lots of shops and some supermarkets like Tesco, which was very convenient to me! Staff are very helpful and kind of them! I was staying on the ground floor and my room was a bit hot, so I slept with the window wide open

Don't go there. Dirty room, dirty shower, dirty toilet. I wouldn't recommend this place to anybody. Very expensive for what they offer. Very old building with people living in the room next to you "hotel room". The only good thing is the location.
