One of my big requirements for this trip was an internet connection, which is advertised as a free and available ... they put me in Room 4.14, in which the wired internet connection in the wall did not work. Couple this with the fact that the Wi-Fi in this room was too weak to use effectively, and this resulted in me requesting a room move (after 2 hours of trying to unsuccessfully resolve the problem with the staff).
Sadly, they put me in a box room at the top of the hotel with no windows, except a sky-light in the roof. despite assurances that it would be possible to move to another room over the weekend, the weekend staff appeared were unable to deliver on these promises.
On the whole, reasonable location around 15 mins walk from the heart of heart of the old town, and rooms are reasonably priced and to a reasonable standard on the whole (just don't take Room 7.05 on the top floor, although I don't think they tend to hire this out unless they are fully booked).
Downside, is that with any budget hotels you probably won't get the service you'd get with a slightly nicer hotel. Next time, I'll probably pay a little bit more for the peace of mind of having a great stay somewhere.
