We stayed two nights last week as a couple travelling with our adult Daughter. We had a double room on the 2nd floor, our Daughter a single. Our rooms were more to the back of the hotel so we had no street noise at all.
The family owners were lovely, very helpful to us and went above and beyond to accommodate us on our checking out day as in offering us a place for our luggage and the use of their facilities as long as we needed to after check out. Also directing us to nearby reasonably priced parking once we had checked out of their car park which is underground away from the hotel itself.
The location is beautifully central and I suspect this is how they can ask rather more than we would normally pay for basic hotel rooms with no luxuries such as; no hospitality tray, minibar or complimentary bottles of water. The bedroom furniture is old fashioned and the décor rather tired and the bathroom needed modernising as the tiling was old and tired. The bed linen was very clean but one of our sheets had a hole in it.
Breakfast was very basic with only one type of cereal offered, some bread a few cold cuts, orange juice, tea or coffee.
The staff is lovely and friendly, the main attraction for us really is the 2 minute walking distance from the arena. I would probably visit again for this reason. Finding the hotel by car is a challenge due to the one way system and our sat nav. was of no assistance in actually finding the location. Our Daughter had to leave us in the car a couple of streets away and set off on foot to the hotel and get instructions on how to get in by car. This is a point to note.
Not sure about a recommendation, one has to take the positives of this hotel which is really its central location. Any traveller looking for a luxury hotel should look elsewhere.
