“Noisy Pick-Up Joint!”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

Having read the reviews of this hotel we were looking forward to our stay here. We booked a superior room and on arrival found that it had a view of the station. Not too bothered by that although it was very noisy with the window open. It was a choice between the rattling air conditioner or the train engines. The room itself was clean although a bit dusty. Interestingly although there is a safe in the room it is not secured to anything and is quite small and light, so you could in theory walk out with it! With the mini bar charging £6 for a tiny bottle of gin plus a further £2 for tonic and £1.50 for a small bag of crisps we decided to avoid this!
There is a rooftop bar on the 13th floor although this gets very busy and all the tables are usually booked up in advance with nowhere much to stand either. It is open to members of the public so anyone can come here and wonder through the hotel. Room 501 near us (and the adjoining room) was occupied by a group of youths who seemed to get confused between the fact this was not university halls. Around 2am we were awoken by loud chatting and running up and down the hallway - joined in by a girl they had acquired during the evening, who had an equally loud voice. The rowdiness continued for a couple of hours and to add insult to injury we were awoken again at 8am when they gathered themselves for breakfast, noisily knocking on each others doors and shouting. We were so tired in the morning, we slept in and missed the breakfast we had paid for.
The hotel is in a convenient location for the city centre and was once a City Inn. After a modern look makeover it appears to be repositioning itself as a boutique hotel although its a pity it hasn't managed to makeover its clientele. A good place for a boys or girls night out (if you are well under 30). Couples STAY AWAY - Im sure Leeds has plenty of genuine and far nicer hotels than this for an upmarket city break! If however you don't need much sleep and fancy partying the night away then this is the place to be.

Room Tip: Ask for a room far away from the 13th floor - if you don't want to be woken up by the busy bar/r...

The Mint hotel is by far the best value hotel in Leeds, it is modern, the rooms are a good size and is situated in a fantastic location right next to the station.
I didn't eat at the hotel so I cannot comment on the food.
I did accidently leave a pair of diamond earrings and wrist watch in the bedroom on my departure. It took me until around 6pm to realise this so I called the hotel right away. The jewelry had been found, handed in and looked after until I arrived back to collect.

Good customer service, great hotel.

Modern, efficient, clean, breakfast was nice. Sky bar is very expensive. Good for shopping in town. nest to railway station. Arrival by car a bit convoluted but well sign posted as a result. Would stay again.

We have stayed around eight times at the mint in Leeds since it first opened about 2 years ago, its offers excellent value, the rooms are a fair size, great to have an Apple iMac in the room, free Internet, the rate inclusive of breakfast is great value, it has one of the best breakfasts of any hotel we have stayed at. All the staff are wonderful extremely helpful nothig is ever too much trouble.
