This is a good hotel. The location is perfect, easy walking distance from the station and tram stops as well as all local attractions. The staff were great - so friendly, efficient and helpful. The room was large and clean. The downsides were that the decor was dated, there were few amenities in the hotel (although the breakfast includes in the restaurant across the road surpassed all our expectations), the bed wasn’t particularly comfortable and as our room was street facing it was very noisy until gone 3am.

The hotel is very nice and is great for staying close to downtown. But travelers beware* this is attached to an extremely loud street. With the windows closed, we still could hear every car and horn all night and day.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Shocking. I was in a basement room near the facilities office. I was woken up early every morning by staff arguing/ complaining about cleaning. The room was old, tired and in awful condition given this is positioned as a premium boutique hotel. The “window” to allow some “natural light” was covered in bird excrement. Peeling wallpaper, cracked bathtub and water stains in the ceiling. Despite the good location I definitely wouldn’t recommend.

Nice hotel in a nice location - unfortunately with noisy revellers from the pub across the road in the street outside until 4.00 in the morning sleep was pretty much impossible.
