Now charge for parking

Pros: Location was handy for me
Cons: don't charge guests for parking
Location: Harlow is Harlow
After staying here several times in the past I was told that they now charge for parking which they haven't previously, it's only £3 but it's the principal - didn't seem enough staff around at busy times & was woken several times due to outside noise (appreciate the hotel can't control that). Air con was so noisy I couldn't put it on for long.

Ein schönes sauberes Hotel in Harlow centrum.

Das Hotel liegt im Centrum von Harlow mit dem Bus dauert ca.3 min bis zum Bahnhof ca 30 min ist man in London City. Das Personal ist sehr hilfreich. Dieses Hotel ist weiter zu empfehlen.
