This hotel has many good points: 1) central location 2) surprisingly quiet 3) clean and spacious rooms 4) comfortable beds 5) exceptionally friendly and helpful staff.
The centre of the hotel/lobby area is a characterful, former music hall. The bedrooms are modern and are situated off surrounding courtyards. This creates a maze of endless corridors, mini-ramps, steps here and there - the effect is quirky but it would be near impossible to find your way out in the event of a fire.
The courtyard setting also means that the bedrooms have little natural light. Our 2nd floor bedroom really needed a ceiling light. The total lighting provided by the wall lights and bedside lights was inadequate for reading/putting in contact lenses/ applying make-up etc.
Breakfast is included in the price but the ingredients are of poor quality. It is an eat-as-much-as-you-like buffet which would be great for students/budget travellers. However, as a 3 star hotel, I would have preferred less food of better quality.
Finally, if you are already booked into this hotel, I would recommend you take your own towels. The hotel towels are old - thin, stiff and more grey than their original white.
I would not choose to stay in this hotel again.
