“Modern and trendy”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

We have just completed a four night stay in this trendy hotel. It is situated in the cultural quarter of Brighton and makes a very good base for visiting all the sites of this lively town.

Our room was spacious and colourful, with very comfortable beds. It was spotlessly clean. These were the good features. The less than good was the fact that there were no drawers in which to put one's clothes and they had to be piled onto a very high shelf above the hanging area of the wardrobe. This was all right for us as we are quite tall, but shorter people could have a problem.

My wife was very dismayed upon first entering the room as the huge windows were only covered by blinds. She has difficulty in sleeping in a room in which there is any source of light and, as we all know, there are always edges around blinds that let in light. Our room looked out over the square in front of the Jubilee Library and there was a huge spotlight on its roof. Our room was VERY LIGHT. Thank goodness for Boots (of chemist fame). We hot-footed our way up to the Brighton branch and bought an eye shield. Phew - that was a close one!

Breakfast is a strange affair - buffet style presented along the long bar in the Cocktail Bar of the Hotel. Not a lot of choice, but adequate. Also, you are charged extra if you choose to have it. We had a slight issue on a couple of mornings, when the wholemeal bread ran out and were told that there was none available. We reminded one waitress, on the first occasion, that Tesco was directly opposite the hotel entrance and asked if it would be possible for wholemeal bread to be purchased from the supermarket. A few minutes later, a loaf was brought in and placed on the bar counter. On the second occasion, more bread was found without any fuss.

Would we recommend this hotel? This is not your traditional English hotel - it is bright, colourful and is probably best described as "young". It has a noisy, lively Bar but no restaurant. It has an Italian coffee shop on one side and a Chilli restaurant on the other.

We got the feeling that it was a great hotel for young trendies and business people staying for a night or two, but for old fogies like us, it was probably not quite suitable. But it was clean and tidy, warm and comfortable, and in a great position in town.

On our last night (Saturday), we returned to the hotel after a lovely meal at The Courtyard (just up the street from the Hotel) and were slightly bemused to be halted at the door by a burly doorman. We have never stayed in a hotel before that has felt it needed to be "policed" by a huge man in a dark suit - obviously a sign of the times.

Room Tip: We were in 373 - huge windows looking out onto a brightly lit square. If you need a dark room in wh...

Before we arrived we booked the hotel car park this was quickly done via the phone. When we arrived the staff were really friendly and welcoming, the hotel itself was bright and minimalist exactly what we thought. Our room was clean and bright and the bed very comfortable, unfortunately the view wasn't great (a wall). The bathroom was non existent with a glass door ( with a hole as a handle to open) if you want privacy i wouldn't recommend. All in all the hotel was lovely, fantastic location and the cocktails were lovely. We will definitely stay again if in Brighton.

We walked through the door and stood in silence, the decor was different from anything we had experienced before, minimalist, crazy coloured furniture, a really lovely surprise, the speakers for the TV were above the bed, so we didn't have to have it very loud to hear it, a great idea as the room was quite big and the large TV was on the wall opposite the bed.
A downside was that there was only a flimsy glass loo door in the bathroom area,(no bathroom as such) so no privacy there!!!!
Also we faced an office block so our blinds were constantly down, when I enquired if people could see in, I was told no, as it was one way glass, believe me you can see straight into the bedrooms from the offices as we stood across the road and looked up at our room, it was clear glass, luckily we had them drawn.
Anyway the staff were great, fab location, walking distance from everything, clean, bright, quiet and comfortable.

Had a night here recently with my wife and everything about the hotel was A1. The rooms are very bright, clean and trendy and are so comfortable. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We were amazed by the price for the level of quality this hotel is. Perfect location as well!

Booked one night in the Bamboo room for a flying visit to Brighton last week. Receptionist was charming and we were dealt with quickly. We had booked a car parking space and did confirm availability of this early that day, as requested, as space is very limited. Other car parks are within a few hundred yards and although some people may be shocked by the extra charge the hotel charges for the car park, it is still cheaper than other central car parks in Brighton!
The Bamboo room was a delight and lovely and quiet. Very clean room and the free bath stuff is excellent & far more than most competitors offer, as were the tea & coffee items. We had a meal in the Chillipickle, which is in the same building but not part of the hotel.....it was excellent, a real treat and we will use again. (If you do not like your food spicey, try the always excellent Bill's just round the corner.)
We would most certainly stay again based on this visit ~ Thank you

Room Tip: We had the Bamboo room, cost a bit more, but worth it and very quiet as at back on top floor. Suspec...

13 adults and 2 v small children (11 mths and 10 days old respectively) all had a fantastic night here this weekend. Staff cannot be more helpful, friendly or just nice! All of us agreed we would stay here again

Room Tip: South facing rooms look over the Brighton Dome/Laines and may be quieter than west facing rooms

We stayed at Myhotel Brighton on the night we went to a Van Morrison gig at the Brighton Dome, and what a good decision. I stay in a lot of anodyne and amorphous hotels in Europe for my work, and they are almost all instantly forgettable. This is a genuine 'one-off' kind of place, with funky design and an individual approach everywhere. An amazing cocktail bar and relaxing coffee shop. Unobtrusive and highly professional staff and a great vibe. We were travelling some distance to the gig, so this hotel was perfectly sited - about 80 metres away - and all with Brighton's Lanes (Laines?) cultural quarter on the doorstep with loads of crazy shops and eateries. Underground parking at the hotel ticked another box. Check out their website, it's accurate, and the place is spotless to boot.

Room Tip: We took a standard room to mitigate the cost of the gig tickets, it was fine. Others we peeked into...
