Positive Reviews

Very convenient location

The hotel is in an ideal location close to many famous landmarks and sights. Many reviews comment on how convenient it is and how easy it was to get to the popular places of interest as well as bars and restaurants.

Excellent staff

The staff throughout the whole hotel have great reviews. They're always happy to help, make an effort to make you feel at home and service comes with a smile.

Very tasty buffet breakfast

The breakfast which is served in the hotel restaurant has great comments. The food is very tasty, served hot and there is plenty of choice every morning for everyone. Some previous guests have even said they were surprised how much was offered.

Negative Reviews

Only one hour of free internet

The hotel describes the Wi-Fi as being free of charge on their site but there are reviews which state only an hour is free and then there is a charge per day. Some people have also said the connection is not great in some parts of the hotel.

No air con at certain times

Throughout the winter months the hotel turns off the air conditioning and advises guests to open their windows. This has been a disappointment to many previous guests who prefer to have cleaner air through the night and have also mentioned, some of the windows do not open in the rooms.

No tea and coffee

Unfortunately there is no facility to make a hot drink in the rooms. There is a lack of tea and coffee and no kettle. This has surprised many people as even in cheaper hotels, you can still make yourself a drink before going down for breakfast.
