Hotel is clean and I found the staff friendly and helpful.
The food is very good and there is plenty of choice for breakfast so caters for most tastes
On the PLUS side: Hotel has lovely big windows that actually open!! This was fantastic and much appreciated.
The bathroom was clean and seemed modern
FREE WI-FI!!! this was a really good thing for me
I found a Tesco Express not too far away which was basic but fine as I was looking for fruit and bottled water BUT English is not widely spoken - so lots of sign language!
On the DOWN side: Hotel is rather tired, so dont expect Radisson standards!
The hotel still allows smoking in some rooms, so although I was in a non-smoking room I suffered as other smokers seemed to be on the same floor and I could share their cigarettes - which was most unpleasant!
The surrounding area is not particularly nice - there are ample taxis, and there are buses nearby so getting around isnt difficult. But I was not comfortable walking any distance
On the whole it was OK for the price I was charged, but to be honest the smoking REALLY spoilt it for me and for that reason alone I probably wouldnt stay here or recommend to business colleagues. But if you are on a budget, and dont mind the area or the smoking (and dont have mobility issues) then this might be just right for you!
(oh but dont use the restaurant if you are not keen on stuffed animals and skins!)
