This hotel was just ok. Most of the people at the front desk were nice enough, except one man who told us flat-out he was too busy to do something (which was a reasonable request) for us! That is horrendous service for a service-oriented business. They were several blocks away from the main city centre, so their location was just ok. And the rooms are tiny, but that's to be expected in Europe. The breakfast wasn't included in our stay and we were told it cost almost 11 pounds each, but one couple who ate breakfast said it wasn't bad. On the good side, the internet (and printing) is free, but there are only 2 computers in the lounge, so you often have to wait for someone to finish. I believe there was free wifi, but I wouldn't know since I didn't have my laptop with me.
One main word of warning though...Do not rely on their wake up call service. During our 5 day stay, we requested 2 wake up calls and they messed up both. Once, they called 15 minutes early, and then they called 15 minutes late the next time.
