Generally speaking for the price you really cannot complain too much, the location is brilliant and this is probably one of if not the cheapest hotel you can book last minute that’s as well located as it is.
The decor isn’t great if you care about that kind of thing but to be honest I was just booking for a roof and a bed, not luxury.
Also, I paid for a twin room and was given a double bed and a single so that was a surprise bonus. The toilets whilst quite cramped are very clean.
24 hour reception is incredibly useful, means you can virtually come and go as needed.
First and foremost, I paid for late checkout when I was drunk after having stayed for two nights. Very unimpressed to have been told it would be £30 and not shown the card reader, my card was taken and put into the reader and I was told to put my pin in. I woke up and checked my bank after having left to find a £40 charge instead. Whilst I’m aware that’s only £10, it’s still the principle of it as I feel like my drunk state was slightly taken advantage of in order to make more profit. Had this not happened I probably would’ve rated the place a solid 6.
Window’s definitely need double glazing, if you’re an incredibly light sleeper this probably won’t be an ideal stay for you unless you bring earbuds as the streets can be very noisy. The walls and floors are also extremely thin, but we got quite lucky with our stay that nobody was too noisy etc. but I imagine this is luck of the draw.
One of the bed frames was actually broken and held together with tape which isn’t great but you couldn’t actually feel this. One of the bed lamps was also broken, which was inconvenient.
The charging sockets are on the opposite side of the room to the beds which is also very inconvenient, would recommend the room was moved around.
The beds themselves are quite uncomfortable. Very hard pillows and no proper duvet it’s more like a thick sheet/blanket.
That being said the room is absolutely SWELTERING. The radiators are on 24/7 and because of the location being very noisy on the street it’s not exactly like you’d want to be opening the windows.
Also slightly wonder how carefully the room are actually cleaned as I found a snapped in half pole thing covered in duct tape (not a clue what the hell it was meant to be) shoved in the bedside table and a cigarette filter on the floor (neither me or the other guest I was staying with smoke). Leads me to believe the rooms are cleaned only to change bedsheets and change bins.
