On checking in my first impressions of the hotel were very good. The location of the place is a plus due to its quiet side street setting. Reception staff are polite, friendly and assured me that I would get a great nights sleep (little did he know). The rooms are very small but are well maintained, modern,clean and well equiped with a nice flatscreen tv etc. The bathroom is great and was spotless.
The downside of the stay was the general noise. The corridors are very small, cramped and I was constantly woken by doors slamming, people talking loudly and antisocial behaviour. Having gone to sleep at about 10 I was woken by noisy guests coming in and out of the lift. This lasted for about half an hour and then I drifted back to sleep only to be woken again by more people and noise in the corridor. I eventually opened the door to find a small group of people lying drunk by the emergency exits. I called security who eventually came but the group had left. Same thing happened 15 mins later and by this time I was fully awake. Security was called again and dealt with the issue.
Overall the hotel was very good but I suffered at the hands of some very noisy guests and think that security could have reacted quicker.
