If you go on first impressions then not the hotel for you. The entrance is one door of a busy side street which you could easily miss. Our taxi driver could not find it, luckily I saw a sign and we stopped nearby. No reception on ground floor, no one to greet you, just a couple of lifts and a sign saying reception on first floor. Reception manned by students but they were friendly and helpful. The hotel is made up of about 27 floors with 2 rooms on each floor. The rooms are small and wardrobe & drawer space at a premium. There is a large work area with desk & chair and a well designed bathroom & shower.
Once you get over the first shock - we had just arrived from Kuala Lumpur where we had stopped in a very large club room.at the Traders - the room does have everything for a short stay, especially if on business. The reception area doubled has the lounge for the evening drink session. Only 4 chairs but plenty of wine & beer. Not many people made use of it but usually one or two groups there to talk to each evening. The breakfast is available by order at the small cafe next door or delivered to the room. We eventually went for the free room service.
Coffee and drinks in the room, only miniature spirits but restocked each day and plenty of soft drinks and water.
The hotel turned out to be in a great area once you went down the steps at the side. The street below was rocking every Friday & Saturday night with bars, discos and restaurants.
Quieter the rest of the time but go down another street and more places to eat and only 5 minutes walk to one of the mail shopping streets.
All in all much better than we first thought and a good hotel for a business stop or if you want to be in the thick of the youth action and very central.
