I spend a fair amount of time in Brighton and we've tried a number of different places but we've finally found Myhotel and I'm really pleased we have.
I would describe Myhotel as "different" but I mean that in a good way. It's not a huge hotel but is in the middle of the North Laine area of Brighton which is perfect for eating and drinking in all the great places around Brighton city centre.
By different I mean that it's not your normal run of the mill mainstream hotel. There is a quirky style to the place which makes it feel more boutique than corporate and the staff are always friendly and helpful.
The rooms address my needs perfectly - mainly that I want air-conditioning that works well, a comfy bed and peace and quiet. In the normal rooms there isn't a wardrobe and the room is very slightly more compact than you would get in a Holiday Inn but it also is a lot more stylish too. Anyway, what do you care about the size of the rooms - you should be out enjoying all that Brighton has to offer!
As a business traveller I have two gripes. Firstly, the desk in the room isn't huge and I struggle to work on my laptop at it but that's quite minor and Brighton has too much to offer for me to stay in the room much anyway.
The second gripe is that the "free internet" in the hotel is terrible and there is no option to upgrade. Again, that doesn't bother me personally because I carry a mifi dongle which works perfectly in there and is how I connect anyway.
The superior rooms are nice with a wardrobe, iron and ironing board and a bit more space but the standard rooms are perfectly adequate for my needs.
Breakfast is available but is just a cold buffet with pastries, juice, coffee/etc but there are a few cafes around that open at 8am so that's not an issue for me. You can also walk from reception straight into The Small Batch Coffee Company for an excellent morning coffee.
Just past reception is a fantastic Merkaba cocktail bar with some excellent staff who are very pleasant and knowledgable about the large range of spirits that are there.
Overall it's a great hotel to stay in (if you don't need the wifi or a large desk) and I look forward to my next visit.
