The staff were friendly. I was pleasantly surprised that the noise from the pub below could not be heard in my room (very good for an inner city hotel), although there was a pair of ear-plugs in the room just in case. On the downside I was surprised that the receptionist took a copy of 2 forms of my ID. They are keeping these in their records. For what exactly .......? In case I break something/am an evil criminal or they are keeping records on guests for marketing purposes. This is after I already provided my credit card details which were verified. In some countries they don't even ask for your name , just as long as you pay. It is a little worrying that the hotel is keeping records of guest IDs. and would be concerned that my details fall into the wrong hands. For this reason I probably will not stay there again, which is a shame because if they were not so paranoid of their guests I would happily consider it for a return visit. Finally the hotel seems to have lost that homely feel you could once expect in a hotel. I can't imagine it would cost much to re-introduce some of the standards that travellers could once have expected.
