Okay, I think it's important to start by saying this hotel changed its name in the last 12 months (very conveniently), it would seem as the previous reviews can be found here:-
These reviews are still very relevant in my opinion and if we'd have read these before we booked, we would have chosen a different hotel.
Let's be clear, it's not a hotel. It's a hostal, run by students and young travellers making a bit of pocket money. Lovely kids - but haven't got the foggiest about running a business. It's trying to be a funky boutique hotel but its been done on the cheap. Paint job in the rooms definitely been done by budding student artists and not professional painters.
Cost - we paid £77 per night in high season. Could have got better for less in hindsight.
Location - quite a walk from the main shopping, restaurant and drinking area to the south east of the city. It's also on a run down street
Shower - was only ever luke warm during our three night stay despite me raising this with reception and one of the kids trying to fix it.
Noisy - noise from the main road close by is very distracting to a quiet nights sleep
Again, if I had my time again I would probably choose the Princess Hotel in the centre of town, much better location. This place should clearly state it is a hostal and adjust prices accordingly.
