I stayed here in a twin room with my mum for a long weekend in Nov.13. We caught the Eurostar so it was nice and convenient for arrivals & departures. It took 5 minutes to walk across the road to the hotel and being so close to the station, we used it on our first night to have something to eat. The area was a bit on the dodgy side. Nothing happened but it was full of men just hanging around the streets and sitting outside the restaurants and they all go quiet when you walk past. A bit unnerving and I'm not the easiest person to unsettle. We decided to go out for a walk on the first night and we turned left out of the hotel......don't! Nothing is up there other than empty buildings and dodgy people. Turn right and it takes you to pretty much everything within 15-20 minutes.
The staff were great. Really friendly, spoke English. We used the breakfast room on both mornings and the staff were also great and the room was clean. The breakfast was good, nice selection if you wanted cooked, fruit or just toast.
The hotel inside was really nice. It looked brand new and everything was in a great condition. The room was small but designer looking. Beds were comfy, 5 English TV channels to pick from. The bathroom was nice and clean, easy to use.
My only gripe was the shower. I have NEVER been in such a hot shower in my life!! Room 214...I could have died! I finished up turning it off and rinsing myself off with a cup from the sink and standing in the bath. So hot I burned my scalp!!! But on the plus side, it was powerful :-)
We stayed at the front of the hotel and the sound proofing was so good, an entire market had set up over night and we didn't hear a thing.
