“I DON'T recommend it at all !”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

Staff isn't helpful, they're not polite, or flexible.., from the moment my friends and I arrived, the guy in reception was rude.. The debit / credit card machine "wasn't working".. there was nothing they could do.. even though our booking said that we could pay by any card.. The carpet was dirty, dusty, ..in the reception and in the room.. we were sharing the shower and toilet facilities, but it was super tiny. Usually I'm not very demanding with hotels.. I prefer a good location and I expect what I pay for.. but really.. this shouldn't be called a HOTEL!

This was easily the worst "hotel" I have ever stayed in. Mould everywhere, and even on the ceiling (which dripped), dirty bed covers, mouldy windows, exposed sockets, stains all over the carpet, big ugly cat going around the place, rude staff. Asked for a double room, got a tiny room with 2 beds, no bathroom except for a communal one which was shared with the entire floor, and had to climb over the toilet to get into the shower (which was filthy). Very over priced for what it is, I wish I has have read these reviews before visiting. Terrible accommodation.

Whorst service ( no service at all...), lot of noise from the hotel's pub, we tried to speak with the manager but he run away from us for 4 days. They put my 5 family members in a room with old sheets and noise beds. The room was for 4 or 3 people so the where no place to move and no place to put the luggage......

Booked the family room on the ground floor for 7 for Queens Day Stay. It was very reasonably priced, and reasonably located. My mum has mobility difficulties, so we got the tram, situated at the end of the street everywhere, but the more mobile could easily walk to most of the attractions. Our room was ensuite, was cleaned every day and the staff were v helpful and friendly. We were a party of 6, all ages from 75yrs down, and all were happy with the accomodation

We booked this hotel basically because it was cheap and fairly central and we didn't intend spending much time there. Our room was very compact but was clean. We were on the 3rd floor, there is no lift and the stairs are narrow and steep so its no good for anyone with any walking difficulties. It is about 15/20 minutes walk from the main square and the central canal area. Tram number 9 from the station drops you only 100 metres away. The staff we encountered were very helpful with directions etc

Room Tip: There is no lift so a room on the lower floors would be best
