The hotel isn't as bad as some of the earlier reviews state; the location is good and the rooms are clean. The breakfast is actually very good as well.
Those are the only positives. The rooms are incredibly noisey; not just the traffic but also in my room you could hear everything going on in the other room be it the TV or slightly more intimate things!
Also, the staff are quite rude. I had a guest stay over and did not argue with paying for 2 people (I had paid for a single room but was given a double) - I got a call at 6.30am from the day receptionist telling me my friend had to leave immediately (I obviously told him where to go).
Anyway, all in all the hotel is not cheap enough for the service it gives and the quality of the rooms. Book elsewhere is my advice.
