For one night only, to be so central to everything going on then it is manageable to stay here. Yes it is old, and given the reviews i have read so far, i am guessing we were lucky with our rooms. We had one sea view room with Balcony (not advisable if you want a good nights sleep as it appears that Brighton sea front road never sleeps) As the building is old, then the windows are not double glazed and as a result you can here everything going on outside.
The sea view room had a jacuzzi, and whilst it was held together by a bit of masking tape, it worked and was great fun to use.
But the view is amazing across the pier and out to sea, and that makes it worth the money.
We picked this hotel as it was one of the few that allowed smoking in the rooms, and as my friend is a smoker it was the best choice.
Yes the hotel is old, and very run down, but you are definitely paying for the location. It fitted our needs, the bathroom worked, the bed was quite comfy and the room was a reasonable size
Dissapointing that the tv's were old and only had channels 1-4 on them
We paid 100 for the seaview room and 70 for one looking out the back of the hotel and we opted not to take breakfast.
