My wife and I stayed at Ricks during the festival. The staff were very friendly when we checked in. I note some comments about the entrance beng a restaurant/bar - so what ! - if you want a grand reception area then go to the larger and more expensive hotels in the city centre like Sheraton or Balmoral.
The rooms are compact but very clean and have all the nice touches you would expect. We were able to relax with a drink in the bar and then have an excellent meal. The serving staff take an interest and know the menu. We were there on a Saturday evening, the restaurant was busy but the service was efficient (not that we were in any hurry).
It was a joy to walk out on a summer evening, go to a show then walk back without having to wait for taxis.
In the morning we had along lie in and a very relaxed long breakfast (all freshly cooked) - no buffet left overs. We werent at all disturbed by the bin lorry in the morning (slept through it )- rubbish has to be collected after all. I note that some reviewers seem to be very uptight about this small issue.
The rate charged during the festival was reasonable - we shopped around and even the budget chain hotels in the central area were asking up to £200 pn (with no breakfast).
