We booked this hotel as part of a Eurostar package and it did not disappoint. Getting there is so easy by bus and the staff on the bus was a star by telling us our stop was the third one. Loads of buses outside the station so really spoilt for choice. The fare is two euros for single journey, a real bargain. The stop is close to the hotel so no need to lug cases over the cobbles.
Check in a breeze and staff explained everything you needed to know. Including discounted breakfast if you book in advance. Messed up safe in the room and within minutes of telephoning reception the staff came to the room and sorted it.
Everything you need for a couple of days is in walking distance from the hotel. It is easy to nip back to the hotel to drop off shopping and the like.
We had breakfast out on the first morning and although cheap we were hungry by mid morning. Booked the breakfast on following days and although expensive we managed on a light snack mid day and then not eat until the evening. Breakfast is varied with a good hot and cold choice.
The room was comfortable and warm and the bed comfortable. The room was on the back side of and was very quiet (321). With the exception of hearing a toilet flushing we did not hear noise from neighbouring rooms. Not a huge room but big enough.
Happy hour every evening - something of a bonus. The bar tender was a star, good with customers, good sense of humour and very attentive. His pleasant approach encouraged us to drink in the bar rather than in the local bars.
Overall 10 out 10 and the only niggle being that there is really nowhere comfortable to sit. But then your not paying to sit.
Give Martins a whirl, it is worth it.
