This hotel was great for its personable and helpful staff. I was traveling on my own and stayed there 2 nights for business and found my room was clean and satisfactory. Some observations, my particular room was small and off the main corridor. The night front desk person played the television at high volume. I did not have a view from my window other than the roof and there was a large step down into my room from the door and then a large step-up from the room into the bathroom. If you are not good with steps especially at night in the dark, this room would not be for you. They have other rooms of course, without these steps and the fact that my room faced internally into the building meant I did not have any noise from the restaurant bar below the hotel in the street. The bathroom had small box shower, no tub. There was a TV & fridge in room. The wifi was free but a couple of times did not work and had to be "reset" by the front desk person so that it would connect properly. Despite these items, I was happy in the hotel and it met my needs.
