Second time in this hotel, and definately the last. First time i got uber cheap price so couldnt possibly complain or grumble no matter what i thought. This time, paid just a fraction below what i would pay for a 'real' hotel.
The room i was allocated was one of the triple rooms. Immediately noticed how much smaller the room felt in comparison to the double room i had had previously. When lying on the bed felt very dark and small and cramped due to the fact that you had a bed above you. Had to take care when getting up from bed not to smack my head on the bunk above.
The pillows have to be the worst, most cheapest, most awful pillows ever invented. I even looked at the label to see what they were made of.. lets just say they werent 300 count egyptian cotton. Bed sheets of equally cheap nasty material. A very restless, sweaty, uncomfortable sleepless night.
Tiny shower closet right next to bed, not a single toiletry in sight. Tiny toilet with a useless flush. Noise from main road.
All in all... if you get the room for £20 ish a night, and expect nothing you will be okay. Otherwise avoid at any cost. I never understand the budget hotels pricing policies.. If your budget and offer nothing, then dont charge £60+ a night. Budget is budget. For £60 i could have stayed at a far superior hotel, with real amenities, bedding not made out of stuff i had to google to know what it was, facilites etc etc.
