We knew we needed to expect lots of noise on this street and that was certainly the case (regardless of the day of the week, it's extremely loud outside at night), but what we weren't expecting was the basic nature of this apparently '4 star' hotel. While the room was a great size and very clean, it was a good 3 star perhaps, with all bar one staff member needing a serious reminder on how to do customer service!
Bizarrely, the hotel was in an argument with its neighbouring restaurant, so we had to walk about 100 yards for breakfast. While this is not really a huge problem, it does remove the ease of being able to 'pop in' for a quick piece of toast or similar, and meant that we only actually had breakfast on one of three days.
The location is great (if you're a good sleeper) and it's definitely clean, but go expecting 3 star and you'll be pleased... 4 star, and you'll be disappointed.
