This hotel is on a very busy crossroad, so noisy yet has no double glazing.
Only 1 very slow lift, which broke down.
No residents' lounge, just a breakfast room doubling up as a crowded bar with music in the evening.
Our room was cramped, with torn sheets and dirty carpet.
There was a lot of furniture and other items stacked in the hallways -a clear fire risk.
You have to negotiate the crossroad to get to the car park.
Excellent breakfast and central location..
Pricey for what you are getting.
