This hotel doesn't look too bad from outside, and to be fair, the communal areas were pleasant and modern, with a reasonable bar/restaurant area. The location was also good, with other restaurants and the city centre within a short walk. The reception staff were functional, but not particularly functional.
The rooms on the other hand, were simply awful. It was small, with painted pebble dash walls and cheap looking furniture. The mattress was very thin, and very uncomfortable, as were the pillows.
The temperature control was non-existent (or at least not effective).
All in all, this was a very depressing hotel, and I won't be making a return visit. Even scarier is that there is an Ibis budget hotel across the road - if this was the standard of the main hotel, i dread to think what their budget version might be like!
