Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The Bannister Hotel is in probably the best location in this part of the city when it comes to eateries, markets and entertainment, it is a very basic 3 star but more 2-star standard and not very well maintained and run. It is grubby in places and just not hygienic or clean and had some strange smells and air-con in rooms that is too warm and air-con in public areas that is freezing. Service is decent if slow. Bed comfort below average and awful very soft p[illows and a shower with plastic shower curtain.It is very noisy at night, but I can accept that and you must be prepared for it,so getting peaceful sleep if you a light sleeper may be an issue.
