Excellent location for the city centre but sadly there is no working air con in the standard rooms with windows facing a wall bringing in no air. It was too hot to sleep so the staff provided a fan and an ice bucket! The staff said a room move was not possible, only to a room that would have “the same problem”. Disappointing to say the least. Would probably be fine in colder months.

Very convenient location. Easy access to everything. Hotel cleaniness is overall good to excellent. No air conditioning probably not a problem most of the year except during the hot months.
