Positive Reviews

Good for Limited Budgets

Guests often commented that this hotel fit their need to find a basic place to stay for as little money as possible. If keeping accommodation costs low is a major concern of yours too, this property will probably be suitable.

The Location is Handy

Because this property is so close to Central Station, it's close to many transit options such as train routes and bus stops. Guests said the convenient location made it easier for them to get around, and many also appreciated how the property is near pubs and restaurants.

Competent and Understanding Staff Members

There were numerous comments about how the staff were good at their jobs and frequently behaved in ways that indicated they truly cared about doing whatever they could to best accommodate guests. Although guests said the employees were attentive, they also didn't find them to be overbearing.

Negative Reviews

No Air Conditioner

Guests staying during the warmest months of the year were often those that found the lack of air conditioning most noticeable. Fans are provided in each room, but sometimes guests said those were welcome, yet not sufficient.

Lots of Street Noise

Guests remarked that the windows do not work well for shielding sounds, which meant that some of them were kept awake by passing traffic. A pair of earplugs may help you compensate if you usually are a light sleeper.

The Property Lacks a Lift

Be aware that this property does not have a lift, and some guests were placed in rooms that were up a few flights of stairs. They commented that staff members were able to assist with luggage, but often struggled if they had mobility problems.
