My husband and I stayed 5 nights at this hotel in May.
Check in was fast, and the service very friendly - they even gave us some bananas which we had been craving!
Our room was on the 8 th floor, overlooking Abercorn St and the river. It was fascinating watching the huge ships traveling up and down the river. The room was very large with a separate sitting area. It had a desk, chair, queen bed (which was excellent), chest of drawers, couch, TV, microwave, fridge and sink. The bathroom was also quite large with an enormous shower. It seemed fairly modern.
The room was very quiet (just a dull hum). The double glazed windows kept out the traffic noise and we did not hear a single sound from neighbors. The TV is widescreen but the picture is "stretched". However there are lots of stations and it is perfectly watchable.
There is a small rooftop pool and gym, but we did not use them as it wasn't that warm.
Breakfast is adequate. We stuck to cereal, bananas and bagels and then had coffee out as we like cappuchinos. There were cooked foods and pastries, muffins and scones if you wanted them.
The location of this hotel is excellent - you could walk everywhere in the historic district.
Before I finish I would like to make a special mention to a very helpful staff member. We left on the day of the "siege" when things were bit chaotic. We were worried about getting away as the doors were shut and the roads blocked. The girl at reception, Hope, reassured us that we would get away OK. She got us a taxi and walked us around the block and made sure we were in the taxi before she returned to the hotel. We really appreciate her help as we didn't want to miss the first of 3 connecting flights! Her friendly and helpful service typifies the service we received in this friendly hotel.
So needless to say we enjoyed our stay very much as this hotel met all our main criteria of friendly staff, quiet room, good bed, great location and excellent value for money. Thoroughly recommended.
