I highly recommended this hotel to a colleague the other day and realised that I had never got around to posting a review on TA. I stayed for eight days B & B whilst working at Bristol airport in March. I selected the City Inn on the strength of the good reviews and my expectations were exceeded. The room was modern, stylish and spotless. (I agree with a recent review that I had the impression of being the first person to stay in the room.) I loved the I-mac (Free TV/Radio/Music/unlimited internet access all-in-one). If I'd known what an I-mac was beforehand I wouldn't have taken my laptop! The staff I interacted with, at check-in, the breakfast staff, the bar steward, to the maid who kept my room so immaculate, they were all without exception, very polite and friendly. Whilst waiting for my colleague at a seating area in reception one afternoon, even the manager, who introduced himself as Angus, asked if I was staying in the hotel, was I enjoying my stay, and if I wasn't completely satisfied with the service and facilities, and should I have any problems or complaints, to ask for him personally. I have rarely encountered such a high level of personal service in a hotel of this size. Considering I had to be away from home for over a week, I found it a proper home from home.
The central location of the hotel is good and is pretty easy to find. It is about a 5/10 min walk from the train station, and about a 5/10 walk to Corn St, King St or the waterfront (more bars, restaurants and clubs than you can shake a stick at). Parking is limited, but on the odd occasion I couldn't find a space, there is a reasonably priced pay and display right behind the hotel. As for a review saying the spaces are tight in the hotel carpark, I was driving the work's Honda Accord Estate which is a big beast, and I didn't have too much trouble!
Overall, I was extremely impressed with the hotel and surprised that it wasn't far more expensive. I look forward to staying there, or hotels in the same chain in other cities, in the future.
