Old-fashioned hotel
Stable wifi! Walking distance to V&A, short drive to airport
I especially love the proximity to V&A Waterfront, making it so convenient to get about when we feel like drinking. The hotel can maybe re-furbish the rooms. We had a queen size bed, which was a tight squeeze, resulting in me not sleeping very well. But I especially love the stable wifi, it is hard to come by. The staff were helpful, which made the stay rather pleasant. And they have free parking right at the door step! Yay! The do have quite a selection for buffet breakfast, which was quiet welcoming for me, since all guest houses only serve the same old English breakfast. But, coffee wasn't fresh as each table have their own pot of coffee, the coffee was sour when we went down for late breakfast.

Cockroaches to keep you company. Far too few staff in the breakfast room. Last day there was no clean crockery, tables or cutlery.

General comments
Hotel staff at the reception was friendly, the hotel needs to higher younger and energetic staff at their dinning area, the hotel is situated at a good strategic point
My stay at the hotel was good, except for the room that had torn curtains and a dirty carpet, food prepared by the hotel was really unbecoming as they reuse their oil making food to have be very dark and not inviting. The older staff at the dining area are unfriendly

No double beds, dirty carpets and unclean room
Parking, Business center, Luggage storage
We arrived in the hotel, excpecting a 4 star hotel. however, once we left the elevator we were greeted by a very distinctive and disgusting smell on the third floor. We openend the room and found large black stains on the carpet, the room smelled as if it hadnt been cleaned in the past year and people had been smoking in it. The sheer curtains had serious stains on them and there was dust everywhere. We booked a double a bed and instead got a two twinbeds pushed together with two seperate bedding sets. We called reception to replace to ask if there was another room available and only after speaking to the hotel manager we got switched to another room. the second one was cleaner but was also lacking the double bed. We sent out the same request about the double bed again, and were assured to get a double mattress. this never happened and so we slept on one very comfortable mattress and one very soft and obviuosly very used mattress. If you're travelling with a budget you can find a better place in the city bowl. I would not recomend this place.
