Well well well... Made a reservation for the room online more than a month in advance that gave me a percentage in discount for early booking.
Maybe this was the reason we were given a room in the basement with a tiny window?
Besides suites the Arch Hotel has four room categories, we booked and paid for a Deluxe Room which is the second best.
I can really not fault the room, the interior or its size but I did not expect to pay 217 GBP per night for a room in the basement with a tiny window. Do have in mind that 217 GBP per night is with 15 % off and excluding tax.
Even the guy showing us to the room apologized all the way to the room about where it was situated and its tiny window. "But it is quiet" seemed to be his only positive comment about the room. The waitress at breakfast exclaimed a loud "Oooh" when I told her my room number, like the room was cursed or something! I guessed she felt sorry for us.
Anyways, the two star rating is from our experience I would not be surprised if I had given it a four star rating if we had a room above ground floor.
Would I recommend it to a friend? Absolutely, but be sure to get a good room when booking.
Will I come back to this hotel? No.
