We stayed here at the beginning of February, just for 2 nights. The hotel has a secure buzz in/keycard entry front door. Lady on reception was very sweet and friendly and quickly checked us in. The room was a good size, with a large double bed, sink, wardrobe and ceiling fan. There was also a tv with cable so a great selection of things to watch. The toilet was at the end of the corridor, there was never a wait to use it. The showers were a little dated and could probably do with an update. There was a free breakfast area with tea, coffee and juice, and a selection of cereal, toast and waffles. Ok, so the hotel IS above a nightclub (but I did my research beforehand so I knew this), we were in the room directly above it. It was a little loud but the hotel are kind enough to provide earplugs and the noise died down around 1 - 1:30am so it wasn't a problem. I felt safe in the area and visited some local bars and restaurant without any bother. Would stay again!

The stay was very poor in the first place. We faced a lot of inconvenience. Firstly when we entered there oom the main light was not switching on. When we asked the front desk guy, he just turned on the light in front of the sink and asked us to use the same. My wife found blood stains on the sheets. We immediately called the guy again and the response we got from him was really bad. He declined by telling it's just a color stain and refused to change the sheet. We had to argue with him to get the sheets changed. The bathrooms were some where else in the hotel (shared) and cleanliness was not up to the mark. Apart from all this, couple of our friends who stayed in the other rooms also found bed bugs and even got bitten from them with all the rashes on their back.

Found bed bugs in the room after getting bitten. Had booked 3 rooms in total, 1 room had bed bugs, the remaining 2 rooms had blood stains on the sheets. When complained, the front desk attendant completely denied to recognize the bed bugs or blood stains. He smelled it and said it's not blood. His behavior was concerning. When I showed him the bed bug that I killed with the blood stain on the pillow, he quickly got rid of the bed bug remnants and then went ok to say it's not a bed bug. I later found a sticky mat under the bed to catch pest which had a bed bug stuck in it. He tried to take it away too from me but I managed to click a pic with him holding it before he could clear the evidence. I am also attaching the bite Marks on my brothers back to show the seriousness of the situation. I have a video too of the bed bug in action and the room!! The remaining 2 rooms had blood stained sheets and the front desk attendant wasn't ready to change the sheets till we forced him to. Overall a very bad experience and the property owner is not ready to refund the amount. I don't understand how this hotel even managed to get a 3 star review. It should be delisted from all the sites for their unhygienic rooms and atrocious behavior!!!

The hotel had comfortable bedding, a prompt staff, and it was clean It's a noisy area, so don't hold that against the hotel. I always travel with ear plugs and I used them here as there are bars nearby with loud music.

Located in a rough part of town after 9pm had to get a cab to get back as I didn’t but feel safe in the area even though the walk from market street was so close. A fan that doesn’t work in the room. And it’s hot, The room vibrates with the bass from the club downstairs. There is one wc for the whole floor of rooms and after a certain time I dont feel safe even to walk down the corridor to use this. Would not recommend this place, has been my worst hotel experience ever and I have travelled all around the world. Over priced for what is not much more than a hostel. The only redeeming aspect of this place is the lovely lady on the front desk. I personally wish I was spending the evening just waiting all night on a cold seat at the airport than having to experience this dreadful room..
