Stayed over the weekend on the recommendation of a friend, who suggested it as a cheap and basic hotel - from his description I was expecting it to be far grimmer than it was. Actually loved it; the hotel had personality and charm, a refreshing change after ticky-tacky (and expensive) four star hotels or the grimness of a backpackers. OK, it's a little battered, but the linen was clean, the staff were helpful (I was given three free drinks and an upgrade for my next stay) and the communal bathrooms (on the second floor at least) had privacy -- all you had to do was close the door. Also, the water pressure was excellent. The problems were due to inconsiderate fellow guests, primarily the man who was more disruptive telling fellow guests to SHUT UP than the guests he was objecting to. If you want central cheap accommodation that's better than a backpackers, go for it. The staff could not be more helpful - I've never had my bag carried up by a manager before. Also, they do very nice G&Ts. :D
