I agree with most reviews for this hotel - I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early Feb and found it to be functional, with a good location, and a clean room. I stayed in a single room with en suite bathroom on the 1st floor (about 6 stairs from the main floor). My room had a private entry, which was nice, and it was quiet during the evening. It could be considered expensive for what you get, but for me, I wanted to be able to walk to my office and this hotel was very close.
I would highlight 1 thing for future guests:
Wifi: The 'free' access was not sustainable - the manager did note that it was due to bandwith - played with the settings on my computer and ipad - and tried to make it work. At the end of the day, it just didn't - it was too slow to send an email. I had selected this hotel over another nearby hotel because of the free wifi savings (about 12GBP/day), and this was very disappointing for me.
