The positives: Location was good, tram stop right outside direct into city centre, nice places to eat and walk about nearby. Not far from the botanical gardens, market, windmill not far away either. Reception staff were friendly for the brief time when we checked in.
However the cleanliness wasn't really up to scratch. Quite aware it was a cheap hotel, only a bed for the night and a shower, wasn't expecting it to be the Ritz but basic hygiene should apply wherever you are: stained pillows, extra bedding stained, hair in the bathroom when we walked in on the first day, hair under bed sheets. Shower drainage a bit dodgy. No air conditioning, If there wasn't a fan in the room we would have melted during the night.
A bit noisy at night but even a hotel cant control the traffic and peoples on the streets below. But because of the heat in the room the we had to keep the windows open most of the night.
Probably would not stay in this hotel again but would certainly stay in the area, once you get to grips with the trams its good.
