I arrived early on Saturday morning (~10am) and parked in the underground car park (£13 for 24 hrs, I think). Very secure looking, guard on the gate, quiet and lots of expensive looking cars. Most more expensive than mine! I called the hotel and they let me check in 4 hour early as they had a room ready. No fuss.
The lady at the desk was very nice and helpful and checked me in fine. The room was great, bit of a naff view over looking a large junction. No sound of traffic on the 5th floor.
The bed was nice, the air con was quiet too, but I turned it off and the temp was fine. The bathroom was well stocked and clean. I forgot toothpaste - mentioned this at the desk and some was at my room within moments!
It's about a 5 - 10 min walk to the NIA and some very nice bars and clubs too. It felt very "safe" walking around at night/evening.
Breakfast was excellent. All you can eat cooked in my case.
All in all, a very nice place and for a great price of ~£90 per night.
