The radiator was on full blast when I walked into the room when it was 25 Degress outside and when I switched it off, the radiator constantly made a hissing sound throughout the night so I didn't sleep well. Also, the paperwork states check out is 11am however Reception told me it was 10am

Location is the key to this hotel. It’s literally in the centre of the city and we were able to walk to all the main sites and shopping areas without any need for using taxis or public transport. If your after a cheap place to stay in a premium location then the hotel is perfect. The breakfast is as expected with a selection of pastries, cereals, cooked eggs and sausages tea/coffee etc nothing fancy but we found it enough every day. I couldn’t fault the cleaning in the room although the room itself is a little basic and whilst I get that it’s not expensive it wouldn’t take a lot to put some complimentary tea/coffee or upgrade the lights a little in the rooms just to raise the standard. The staff were all really helpful, the guy at breakfast was always very polite and works away to keep everything stocked, the desk staff were good too, we had a couple of little requests that we made whilst we were there and they were genuinely helpful and looked after us. To sum up, if you want somewhere ideally located but don’t want to pay the premium prices this place is perfect, it’s a little simple but you get what you pay for....
