Thank you for your review!

Location is good & central. Bit of noise from nearby trains a constant, along with jack hammer work during our stay that vibrated all the way up to our room on the 9th floor. Covid lock-down meant there was no escape from the noise. Couldn't judge the bar / kitchen facilities as they were all closed due to Covid.

The staff were friendly and professional. The room was very average in cleaning. Our beds had been separated as we wanted twin beds and there was crayons and lolly paper underneath from previous guests. Shelves were dusty and kettle had not been cleaned. There was no spare toilet paper left, requiring us to use tissues! Breakfact staff and variety was very nice.
