Booked the Artto for overnight after a wedding as it was a bargain: £44 for a twin room. It did the job - the staff were very friendly and helpful - allowing us to check in early to get ready. The room was pretty basic but had everything you need for a quick stay when you're not spending much time in the room. It had a new carpet, and was clean. There was a decent hair dryer and basic amenities. The bathroom was a little scuffed and had a few issues - the shower hose didn't hang up, the bath was chipped, but it was liveable with.
Some of the previous reviews said the bar wasn't serving alcohol, but it is now, and the bar is pleasant.
If you're at the back of the hotel, be prepared for a bit of noise - the bins we collected just after 7am and the lorries and recycled bottles were far from quiet. We also were disturbed by the maids talking very loudly for 15 minutes while they were working in the corridor early in the morning.
The hotel is ideally located if you need to be near Central Station - it's just across the road.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel as a romantic trip, but as a quick stopover it's fine.More
