Reviewed 30 September 2012

Overall: Room was small clean and fairly well appointed. I could not get any sleep due to the traffic noise and overwhelming smell of car exhaust.
Good: rooms are small with lots of storage area. The rooms are very clean. The breakfasts although adequate in terms of supply, was very limited in choice.
Bad: When I first arrived they insisted I had no reservation even though I had a printout prepaid voucher. They finally assigned me a room. At check out they insisted I had to pay indicating they had no prepaid voucher from me. Fortunately i keep multiple copies of these and gave them another copy. After a very long discussion they agreed that it was paid.

I could not sleep at night due to traffic noise and the smell of exhaust. In the early morning (4 to 9am) the smell was particularly bad and caused headaches. Traffic was nonstop at night since this is on a busy road where traffic moves very fast considering the size of the road. Since the hotel is at the bottom of a small hill just below the the main shopping road, exhaust seems to accumulate here

Five out of the seven days the hot meat choice on the buffet was hot dogs that I never saw a single client eat. I believe they just rewarmed these from the day before. Coffee was provided in thermoses at the table. Most morning coffee was lukewarm at best. They have busloads of tourists and students staying at this hotel. If you have the misfortune to try and eat breakfast when they are there it is a complete nightmare. Everyone is busy trying to get a quick breakfast before getting on the bus or leaving the hotel together.

Cleaning staff is particularly aggressive trying to get into the room at 9 AM every morning. They did not seem to want to wait until I left the room.

Front desk service is nonexistent.

The hotel has a perfect location, right near the nashmarket.The rooms were fairly clean, and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was included and had a nice big selection to choose from. We would definitively stay again.

Room Tip: make sure the room you book has tv, not all of them have it.

Walk to the Museum Quarter and some fantastic restaurants (we tried the Arabic the Greek and the same street and the Italian in the next street). Staff are friendly and helpful. They offer s a range of room types and prices. We were at the budget end and very happy.

It is not the best hotel I have ever stayed in, but I really enjoyed staying here. Location is good, the price was more than reasonable, the room was clean and staff nice and helpful.

I stayed one night in this hotel. I booked a double-economy room with 40 or 50 % discount. It was really cheep and to be honest I did not expect much from this hotel since I just stayed 1 night. But I was very surprised to see how clean the hotel was. My room had a good size. The was a TV there, a small one but there was. The shower was good. There were 4 towerls for 4 people and shampoo and soup. Mostly, 2 star hotel do not provide such things. The only disadvantage is that the furtuture is a bit old fashoned, but comfortable. I sleot very well. One more thing: some of the personell at the reception is not very helpfull, but if u insist they will answer to all ur questions and will help u. But another day there was other personell at the reception and they very very friendly and helpfull. There was quite good isolation from the noise, at least in my room. I definetly reccommend this hotel and would like to stay there again.
