excellent position in city, staff very friendly HOWEVER this was definitely a case of living out suitcase. Only storage space three coat hangers, no drawers etc. for two people! No chairs, one stool. Little balls of dust on floor. Remote on TV didn't work. We laughed and didn't reallymind it - but be warned!

Unclean and noisy

A very uncomfortable stay. I expected basic facilities, however I didn’t expect the bathroom to be smelly and the room to need a good clean. What’s more, the rooms need sound proofing. We were woken every time someone entered the corridor. I wouldn’t recommend staying here.
