I stayed at this hotel for two nights in July and unfortunately, didn't have the best experience. They have a charge for late check-in, a charge for storing baggage, a charge for credit card payments (they only want cash payments it seems). Given I arrive around 11pm, it would have been nice to be greeted by a friendly face - it costs nothing to ask a weary traveller about his journey.
I was a minute late for breakfast (completely my fault, I got times mixed up) and no attempt was made to even offer me a cup of coffee. Appreciate that I was late, but not by much and it would, again, have cost them nothing to offer me a little something.
The room was stuffy and hot, and didn't have a full length mirror. The bathroom was rather poky and the shower wasn't particularly powerful. Not very much in the local area either, it is about a 20 minute walk to the city centre. Given the price, I really would expect a lot better.
Wouldn't have minded the small room if the staff were helpful and friendly. Shame really.
