I was looking for a short trip for my wife's birthday and was getting a bit worried that I couldn't find anything that was not too far to travel as time was limited but was a bit more exotic. Then I found the Welcome on the internet and immediately booked one of its suites - The Silk Road. When we arrived I saw my wife was not over-impressed with the exterior but as soon as we entered we were warmly welcomed and were amazed by the suite. It was decorated to represent the old trade route from China to Venice with interesting furnishings and artwork including a realistic mural of Venice in the hall between the bedroom and the bathroom. The bedroom area is large with three full height windows overlooking St Catherine's square. The bed was large and very comfortable. The bathroom was beautifully tiled with double basins, a shower and a large jacuzzi type bath. There was a separate toilet and washbasin. Breakfast was excellent and was available in the reception area which had a small cafe atmosphere.
The St Catherines square area has many restaurants and we did not need to go far to find excellent food following recommendations from the hotel. The Metro station is accessible just yards from the hotel. And critical nowadays - free wi-fi in the room. This hotel is to be recommended as a welcome change from the standard city centre hotel and at a reasonable price.
