6/10 Good

Booked a ‘deluxe’ room for three nights however it was unavailable the first night. I was told by a staff member that this was due the previous occupant being unwell and unable to travel so needed to stay an extra night. The manager later admitted that it was just double booked. No discount or refund was

The staff and location are great. Especially if your a foodie and shopper. Upstairs bar EXCELLENT spot to have a nip. That said. Black-mold all over the shower enclosure a huge no-no. Never slept for three nights as well. Ear-plugs, sleeping-pills with/without drinks. Keep late hours wont really matter either. But location & elevator. And 'SnogBar'.

It’s my second time in duo. They have two buildings face to face and the first time it was great and with more room. I booked by mistake in the second building which is more “budget”. Veryyy smal room, and incredibly noisy: although on same street, very bad insulations. You hear everyone like it’s right next door it’s unbearable.
