I think it must depend on the room you get, as some of the reviews below show that people have been happy with their stay. I was horrified with mine. The divan bed-base had no mattress on it and was the most uncomfortable thing I've ever tried to sleep on. The staff seemed sweet, although clearly they were quite embarrassed at the room they knew they'd given me. The view was amazing - in the tower looking out at the Palace Pier, but the windows were broken and rain was coming through the sticky tape they'd tried to mend it with.
There was no soundproofing at all and all I heard all night was a nightclub and then drunken screeching and sirens as the sun came up.
Breakfast was almost as bad as the room with low quality rubbery toast and scrambled eggs that were swimming in water and still had raw bits mixed up in them.
So in general I couldn't sleep and couldn't eat the food, and all for 150 quid.
This is an amazing building and it's sad because it has so much potential. Someone needs to adopt this place as a pet project and give it a lot of love and a lot of money.More
