The rooms were nice. The wifi was a bit hit and miss. Balcony chairs faded old plastic. No light on balcony. A hole in the bed linen. Close to eateries and resturants/pubs. If you order a ‘city view’ suite suggest you aim for higher floors, otherwise overlooking roof aircons and dirty rooves from other buildings.No atmosphere inside the hotel.

The day was a hot one and our air conditioning did not work very well at all. The balcony had two plastic chairs and a vast area of drab concrete and overlooked an office block. Not much privacy generally or from people on neighbouring balconies.

Only real gripe is the centralised air-conditioning system, which means you have no control over the room temperature bar off or on. Other than that. Great location. Excellent staff.
