Free Wi-Fi, clean and in the city centre. This was stated when I booked the hotel. 2 were true, one was a lie.
The hotel is indeed in the city centre, the location is just spot on. Everything is within walking distance. The hotel itself is clean and the staff is friendly. The rooms, though a bit small, are nice and have everything you need. The beds are excellent actually, so the hotel has got a lot of positive sides. The restaurant and bar is a boring environment, but nothing unusual for a UK hotel.
As a business traveler I need Wifi. Now, the hotel claims it’s free. However, the free part is an absolutely mind-blowingly slow connection and it’s limited to one device. Working on that line was impossible. Also, 1 device per room is rubbish. Everyone has at least 2 devices (phone/laptop/tablet), and if you are with 2 in a room, you’re stuck. So, this is costing them a point.
Ok, so I’ve decided that I need the upgrade, which gives you OK internet speed (nothing more). Still a limit but 4 devices. The price? 10GBP. Really? So, for me it’s now cheaper to hook up my phone as Wi-Fi hotspot and pay the roaming costs. And, it’s actually faster too.
This is just plain stupid. There goes another point.
It’s time these kind of hotels reconsider their business models.
