Clean & Comfortable
Posted Apr 25, 2013
We choose this hotel because it looked modern and near the port area with lots of interesting things down there. The exterior of the hotel is a little disappointing, but then it's technically an office block with the hotel on the top floors. The room was modern, just a little small, and the bathroom was the smallest we've seen, though very nice. There is however nowhere to put toiletries other than use a shelf in the wardrobe. The staff were very friendly and helpful which was a real plus. They even left a small bottle of bubbly and a birthday greeting in the room for me on my birthday, which was a lovely surprise after a long day sightseeing. The walk from Hammerbrook Station to the hotel along the canal is ok to do during the day, but after dark feels a little unsafe due to the winos. We recommend that staying here you are prepared to do a fair bit of walking to get to the sights so wear sensible shoes.
