We chose the Kennedy based on its proximity to the railway station. In that respect it was an excellent location, but I did not really feel safe in the area. The hotel itself is quite old and a bit run-down, with creaking floorboards and a confusing layout. Our room, a double on the third floor, was reached by a lift which was quite modern. The room itself was of a reasonable size, and furnished with wardrobe, desk, chair, bedside tables and rack for suitcase. The door did not seem to close snugly, although it was locked. The bathroom had everything you would need and was quite clean, although the shower was tiny. The bed was quite hard and not all that comfortable, and the curtains fell down during an attempt to close them, so the room was a bit too light. We did not find the street noise too much, despite what others have said, but the noise of other residents returning was disturbing. The breakfast was better than we had expected, with a plentiful continental breakfast and good service.
Desk staff member was not rude, but certainly a bit offhand, and there did not seem to be much security regarding keys.
If proximity to the railway is your concern, this will do nicely, but for a longer stay I'd probably recommend somewhere else.
