8/10 Very good

The hotel was ideally located, close to the airport tram, hop on/off buses, shopping and restaurants. There was no staff on site and the wifi was spotty.

4/10 Fair

Disappointing stay. The shower gels seemed to be mixed with water, cleaning can be improved, wifi didn't work, there was nobody for the check in and checkout which made it very annoying /not very straightforward, etc. I won't come back and would not recommend.

Verified guest review

8/10 Very good

Very good value for money, cheap and cheerful, easy check in and out details and good location. Was much quieter than expected which was appreciated. In the room a few more amenities would have made the stay better. A bigger wardrobe, headboards for the beds, having a working tv and removing the piano which just took up loads of room which could have been used practically. Would stay here again in a heartbeat as the value is fantastic
