The location of this hotel could be a little better but its a budget hotel so cant really complain about that. I have stayed in a few Ibis budgets and Etap hotels this one lets the side down. Firstly when we arrived we paid 10 pounds to check in 2 hours early. Travelodge chargers similar so that was fine. We got to our room and when I turned over the duvet i found blood on the bed side of it.... It wasnt fresh blood as it was a darker color that put me off. We had to flip the duvet over to sleep in clean sheets and we hoped housekeeping would come and change it the next day. We were wrong they just made the bed back up and gave us fresh towels. Other than that the place was clean but the elevator button on floor 2 was stuck together with sticky tape.
If you are on business or need Internet connection this is not the hotel for you. We could barely connect to it and trying to book theater tickets was a real pain. I had to give up and go direct to a ticketmaster outlet. The wifi speed is that of ISDN around .3 of a mb if it works at all. We even tried to use it in the lobby no joy either. Ibis budget sort this out all your other hotels have good wifi expect this one.
