Hotel24seven is a novel concept - no reception or services, just a room for the night. You access the hotel - and your room - by using a unique pin number emailed to you before your stay.
While this automated system is certainly effective, the lack of a human touch on arrival does feel rather strange. A concierge number is available for any problems, but otherwise you're on your own.
We stayed in a deluxe double which was clean, tidy and perfectly adequate. The facilities are on the basic side though. We had a couple of decaf coffee sachets and the standard UHT pots, but nothing else. Towels were still damp and there were no controls for the towel rail to warm them up a bit.
For the price, Hotel24seven is good value, but I don't think I would return. Apart from anything else, the lobby smelled of cat wee the whole weekend. Not ideal! It does state on the website that it's a budget hotel so I wasn't expecting 5* service - on the whole we really enjoyed our stay - I think there are certain things that could just do with a bit of tightening up.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel24seven combines the charm of Victorian architecture with all the modern facilities that visitors should expect from a quality hotel, including free wi-fi, secure off-street parking and ensuite facilities in most of the 30 rooms. All rooms also benefit from a writing desk, refrigerator, colour TV & DVD, iron and ironing board. Unlike most hotels in Bristol, we offer guests the use of a fully fitted kitchen, so you will have maximum choice and flexibility about when, what and how often you wish to prepare and eat a meal during your stay. ... more less
