We stayed at Cocoon during a recent weekend in Liverpool. It's a brilliantly-located hotel within 15-20 minutes walk of Lime Street Station, the Docks and the Cavern Quarter, and the area close to the hotel was crammed full of bars and restaurants. Though our bedroom was in the basement it was comfortable and clean and the lack of windows really wasn't an issue. We couldn't get a phone signal but the wifi worked in the room which made up for that.
There were only a couple of issues. Our door lock seemed not to work at times and we needed a few attempts to lock and unlock our door. The reception staff came and changed the batteries but it didn't help, though it may have been we needed to push or pull the door slightly first as it seemed to work OK the last time we went in.
The other problem was the air-conditioning ceiling blower in our room which couldn't be turned off and made the room a bit chilly. There was a heater to counteract that but using it felt a bit energy-wasting. There was also a blue light in the room which meant it wasn't pitch dark but that didn't stop us sleeping.
The staff were friendly and helpful and we'd probably stay here again, though sorting out the air-con would definitely be a bonus.More
