“Etap Sheffield Arena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

Used this hotel for the first time on Saturday 7th January for a one night stay (2 rooms). Basic accomodation but clean, friendly & above all, provides excellent value for money. No tea / coffee fascilities in rooms but at the price we paid, could not complain. Excellent access to Motorpoint Arena & no problem with on-site parking (£3.00 for our stay). Very flexible check in / check out times & buffet continental breakfast good value.
Would not hesitate to use again.

This is not the first Etap hotel that I have stayed in so I kind of knew what to expect for the price paid, but as always it did not seem to let me down!!

The hotel is located ideally for the motorpoint arena as it is literally minutes away! However we used it for heading out into the city centre, it was still located well as the taxi ride was only 10mins!

The room was suitable for a short stay however with only one pillow each the neck aches a bit in the morning.

Staff were friendly and helpful, even letting us order in food to eat in the hotel room!

The toilet and shower is separate however the shower has a glass door and is in the room itself not separate!

The only real problem which was encounted was that the plug sockets (only two) were over the opposite side of the room to the mirror, making it rather difficult to do a hairstyle to go out!

All round it was a good hotel and I will stay when attending another concert at the arena!!

Thanks for a great stay Etap!

Room Tip: Lift up to the floors and easy access via the stairs!

The hotel is really convenient if you're going to concert or event at the Motorpoint Arena - just a very short stroll. No restaurant but a number of decent places to eat in the shopping centre close by. But the beds are the most uncomfortable I have ever known in a hotel. I'm sure the mattresses were just slabs of rubber. I expect a budget hotel to have no frills and being able to sleep is one thing I'd class as an essential. So I wouldn't recommend it although it was clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the location good

This hotel says what it does on the packet, it provides accommodation for a cheap price. It is a stones thrown from Sheffield Arena and is perfect for anything that is on there.

We always stay here when we go to concerts at the arena.

Stayed here as going to a concert at the Motorsport Arena, just 5 minute walk away, perfect. Hotel was clean but in need of a coat of paint and new carpets but neverless good value for the prices charged. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and very reasonably priced. Would probably stay here again if going to another concert.

The hotel was very close to where the event was held which was a big plus. The rooms are basic but very clean and who wants to spend the whole day in your room! You have everything you need and you are warned before you go that there are no frills included!
