Previously stayed here when it was the ETAP. Booked in for two nights as nowhere else avaialble at budget price close to New Street. Hotel seemed very busy. The staff seemed better than last time, however the two lifts didn't work when I was there meaning that guests had to carry their luggage up and down the stairs. Not good. My room was very clean but there was old staining on the emulsioned walls which wasn't very nice. My room felt very cold despite my efforts to warm it with the heating/blower unit. The window seals seem poor in this hotel letting in the cold and noise from outside. I found the plumbing quite noisy and gurgley. There was an intermittent buzzing from plant or electrical equipment somewhere outside also. There seemed to be some sort of WiFi internet service available that my phone could connect to but it didn't seem to work. The TV had a good range of channels but had some sort of auto commentary feature useful for blind/partially sighted people but which I could'nt turn off and so was annoying. On the second night the people in the room next door crashed in at about 2:30 AM and were very noisy till about 5 culminating in people running up and down the corridor singing loudly and banging on doors wanting to be let in. Despite the 'Do Not Disturb' sign I had housekeeping hoovering right outside my door at 9, then they were back again at 10 hammering on doors to see if guests were still in the rooms. Guess you get what you pay for, but could be better I think.
