“Clean friendly and central hotel”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

stayed for 3 nights and met all our expectations. The service was very friendly and professional. Good selection at the bar and clean tidy room. The only food available is breakfast but with a wide selection of resturants within seconds not an issue. This not our first or last visit..

The hotel is just across the road from central station, the twin room was small and basic but clean. We only needed somewhere to sleep and the location was perfect for walking around the centre of the red light district.

Room Tip: We had to walk up 3 flights of steep winding stairs to our room, not suitable for those who have dif...

I found this hotel was better than i was expecting. Rooms where clean, beds surprisingly comfy, adequate soap, shower and toileteries etc + TV. The location is spot on too.

The main problem with this hotel was the noise. We possibly got a room in a bad spot (Second floor at the front of hotel) but sleeping became very difficult. Other guests moving around to go the toilet or up and down the stairs (Passing our room) was very loud. On top of this, the noise from outside was even worse with the mixture of what I assume where delivery trucks to local businesses in the early hours, general traffic from the nearby road and numerous people walking past below made it difficult to get a few hours sleep, nevermind a much needed sobering lie in after a night of drinking.

The second main issue was the heating was barely never off and even turning the radiator down didn't stop us either suffering the uncomfortable heat, or opening a window to be met with even worse noise from outside.

I would stay at this hotel again but bring a quality pair of earplugs and a room towards the back of the hotel.

Room Tip: I would imagine rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter

Very small but clean rooms and comfortable enough. Single glazed windows though, the bin men and road sweepers will wake you up. Smells of cigarette smoke in corridors. Shower was good. Breakfast not bad.
