Stayed here for one night, which was superb value paying only £35 for a double room - cheaper than any hotel in the UK! The location is good, the nearest tram stop is around the corner from the hotel and from there it takes about 5-10 minutes to reach the very centre of the city. Initial impressions were good, we arrived early at 11am to leave our luggage with reception, not expecting to be able to check in that early and were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready. The double room is very small, however has lots of facilities and is clean. The en-suite bathroom was perfectly adequate, although it was one of those annoying 'wet rooms' meaning that every time you use the shower, the whole bathroom floor gets wet. The walls in the bedrooms are very thin - in the middle of the night I was woken up by voices from the next door bedroom, which lasted about half an hour. I called the reception staff who asked them to be quiet, however it was a while before the voices stopped and I was able to get back to sleep. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall it was an excellent value hotel considering the price paid, however under no circumstances would I pay full price for a room.
