I stayed in the Castle Park Hotel for 5 nights in June while sitting exams in the City. The hotel is right in the middle of the town centre, and is ideally placed for the shopping district, Highcross Centre, numerous bars, De Montfort Uni, and a short £5 taxi ride from the train station.
My room was on the second floor, with a view over the street. There is secondary glazing so the noise from the fairly busy road outside isn't too intrusive. Room was fairly clean, but quite basic. En suite facilities were really handy.
One slight downside was that the room was only cleaned every other day, and the tea and coffee making facilities were only topped up at the same frequency. Plus guests in the hotel seemed to be quite inconsiderate making lots of noise coming in and out of the building (there are several heavy doors to come through, which would be left to slam), whatever the time of day or night. I think this was worsened by the fact that the two other rooms on my floor were using a shared bathroom at the end of the corridor, so there was quite a lot of to-ing and fro-ing.
This would be an ideal base for shopping and site-seeing, but I would recommend it more for a short stay.
