No clean bedding, no toilet in room, cleanliness poor. Rubbish from previous guests left in room. Overall cleanliness was disgusting, no space in the room. Very cheap hotel didn’t expect much but wow it couldn’t have been worse. 5 years behind bars is more appealing

Hello, We are disappointed by your experience, unfortunately you made your review anonymously so we are unable to investigate and check the room you stayed in and staff working. Every guest has clean bedding on their bed upon arrival and are welcome to exchange this at anytime from our reception. Our reception is available 24hours, we invite guests to discuss any issues with us so they can be addressed straight away.

Never again

Cons: There is plenty to be improved
The rooms are really small, no space if 2 peole want to get organize their stuff at the same time. Miss also the point still do mix rooms, when showers for women are on one side and for men on other sode of the each floor. Central heating was on only for couple of hours, even we were on winter season still. I have missed also plugs for each bed, bed light....the price for a breakfast was quiet expensive. The hodtel is not worth it for money they charge for a night stay.

Dear Ivana, thank you for taking the time to give us a feedback. We are really sorry to know you didn't enjoy your stay at all. Unfortunately this is an old building so sometimes spaces are limited. About breakfast, you need to consider that you pay £8.00 for a huge buffet, where you can literally eat as much as you want. Outside you would pay the same amount only for one plate. Regards, Reception team

Hi Dimic, thank you for your review. We apologise for the fact your stay fell short of your expectations and that a reason for this was that your room did not match the photos on line. However these photos are of select rooms and the rooms are subject to vary. We will bear this in mind going forward and take actions to avoid such misunderstandings in future. Thank you
