“More like a hostel than a hotel”
Reviewed 15 June 2009

This is very basic accommodation and I would describe it as more like a hostel than a hotel. The rooms were clean but tiny (I hit my head on the TV stand several times!). Having said that it did the job for an overnight stay as long as you aren't expecting any frills, but you wouldn't want to spend too long a period in your room! Myself and my colleague went out for most of the evening and only went back to go to bed. I had single occupancy in a twin room (bunks) but it is beyond me how any more than one person would be able to stay in one of those tiny rooms! I also would not have wanted to stay there for more than one night.

Whilst the location is handy because it's right next to the train station, it's not in the nicest part of town. The surrounding area is pretty run down and in future I would probably choose to venture towards the main town / historical area and stay in a slightly nicer area.

We stayed in cityroomz for one night in march to go to a wedding. We has specifically asked when we could check in as the wedding as at 2pm. On arrival at half 12 we were told we could not get into our room, the receptionist was quite abrupt about this so we went off for lunch. We arrived back at Just after 1pm and they had literally just finished the room so we had to rush to change.
We had one of the double rooms down the ramp at the side (blatantly an old garage conversion!) The walls were stained and the bathroom closed by sliding doors which didnt really close properly.
The best was yet to come though as on our return from the wedding at 2am as we made our way down the ramp there was a tramp sleeping in front of the door to the section of the hotel where the double rooms are. We had to wake him up in order to get in. Needless to say I didnt sleep much that night knowing there was a tramp right outside my room who could have been anyone!
Way overpriced, rude and disgusting place..never ever stay there!
