We booked this place because of the central location and the cheap price. The hotel was full and we were offered a room in the annex. I stress I am writing about the annex here. The hotel was fine and the staff helpful. We were then led down the road and entered through a small door between two buildings and up a small alley. The first room was on the ground floor and was acceptable enough. However later on during the evening the nightclub behind started up and the whole place shook until 4.00am. The heavy thump of the bass rattled the crockery in the kitchen. In the morning we asked to be moved and we put up on the top floor supposedly above the noise. Not true we had another night of heavy bass thumping. Access to the top floor was up a very narrow and steep staircase that would not be suitable for older or infirm people.
This would be suitable for youngesters on a low budget that will be spending their evenings in the club behind and therefore the noise would not affect them. The rooms were clean and the beds sort of comfortable. We will not be returning but as I said it would suit the younger traveller as it really is close to the action, too close!
I would repeat this is a review of the annex rooms.
