Brendan F. Couples United Kingdom, August 19, 2013
Handy for all the major tourist attractions

Close proximity to city centre
The room was very small, and we found it quite noisy,(other quests in the hall, banging the connecting doors)However, it fit the bill for somewhere clean to stay centrally in the city.

A well-decorated hotel surrounded by ground works

Centrally located, attentive staff
The hotel is situated in downtown business area. Unfortunately, some large-scale ground works were going on in the surrounding area during our stay. It took us some time to figure out the way out to the old town area.

Great Hotel for Price

Price, location, clean
Our stay was great! There was construction going on, but that's not the hotel's fault. And we had a room in the back of the building, so it didn't bother us. Small room, but we were fine with it. Great bar and great cocktails!

Good location, friendly and helpful staff

Good location, friendly staff, clean and new
The stay was pleasant and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The only problem is the hotel is without lift; although the staff will help to carry the heavy luggage up a few storeys, I just felt bad for them to lug the luggage up the staircase. Another thing is the whole stretch of York Place (the main road) is under construction for tram service. No end to the construction, already delayed for many years. So taxi will not stop in front of the hotel. At least 100m walk.

Good value for the money, Convenient location

Helpful staff, large room, complimentary wifi
The staff were exceptionally helpful; we had arrived early that morning, and they were extremely accommodating in holding our luggage, getting the room ready ahead of time, and making us comfortable in the interim. The room itself was very comfortable; I found the decor and lighting fixtures unconventional, but not unpleasantly so. Additionally, they offered complimentary wifi for guests, which had been unheard of in our travels in the UK up to that point (and this was 5 hotels into our trip). I can provide only two slight negatives. The first is not actually the hotel's fault; the street in front of the hotel is currently undergoing major construction and is therefore closed...so getting to the hotel involves a bit of a walk from the nearest taxi drop point (which is around the corner, around half a block or so). This is not a slight against them; however, if you're in a wheelchair, it could represent a problem. Which brings me to the second (related) item: the rooms are accessible solely via staircase, which could prove prohibitive to those with physical handicaps. Overall, we had a great experience here, and I would strongly recommend this hotel.

エレベーターがないのが心配でしたが、スーツケースはスタッフの人が運んでくれました。 今はホテルの前の道路が工事中(路面電車建設中のよう)で車が入れないためタクシーを呼んでも玄関前まで来れないのですが、スーツケースを持ってタクシーのところまで一緒に来てくれました。 ホテルでは不自由なく生活できました。ベッドが大きかったのが嬉しかったです。 外観が似た建物が並んでいるのでホテルを見つけるのが少し大変でした。 このホテルに泊まってよかったです。
