A dreadful stay at an awful hotel
We were offered a windowless, unventilated, airless room with a ceiling height at some points no more than 6'2". The staff were harassed, unhelpful and only after a long negotiation were persuaded to give us a room with a window. The hotel was noisy all through the night. One of the three lifts had a 'out of order' sign and no light yet continued to operate. All in all a terrible experience which will not be repeated.

we stayed in club city room. And it was disappointing.... The rooms are located at the lower floor but it was so humid because of the rain next day. And at late night if walking alone through the corridors.. It won't be suitable for girls alone.

Very poor
1. WAITED AN HOUR TO CHECK IN. (they said it was agodas fault it normally took a while for booking to complete). 2. Receptionist was cheeky and rude. 3. Travelled for 3 months was the most overpriced basic place we stayed.

Not worth to pay
The room is fulfil of broken things especially bathroom which towel bar is broken. Moreover, the bar for hanging a bath curtain is not safe because the end joint is not fixed with walls. Hence, i faced the situation that a curtain bar hit my head during the bathing.

great value for money fabulous location
very centrally located close to Haymarket station (15 mins walk ). In lovely area close to art galleries and on the River side. Food and drinks available at hotel throughout the day. Very friendly helpful staff. Check in is a bit chaotic especially when coach parties arrive! Car parking £5 per day. Beds daily comfy, tea coffee and iron in rooms. Sound proofing is not great but what can you expect for 50 pounds!

Hostel not hotel
Disappointed, the hotel is in a great location and staff where friendly but the rooms are not up to it, basic, in need of a good refurb, no curtains, no wardrobe, 2 sockets that are not near bed or mirror, poor lighting to say the least
