This was my first time in this hotel, on a weekend visit to the City. The hotel itself was extremely good value and the service was good. There was a great bar which stayed open very late and served fab cocktails! The room was perfectly adequate (4th floor double), being well decorated, clean and spacious. Great little extras like a Samsung tv, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer and Bee Kind toiletries, and the walk in shower was great too! There was air conditioning in the room but it wasn't enough on its own and so therefore I had to open the window - which is when things weren't so great! Unfortunately such a great central location comes with a lot of noise - and I mean a lot of noise! I struggled to sleep because if I shut the window it quickly became too hot and I couldn't sleep anyway - which was a shame as the bed was so comfortable and the pillows amazing! Maybe in the colder months the window wont need opening and noise wouldn't be a problem.
