Good location. Note that postcode takes you to the BACK door on iOS maps. Slightly odd smell from bathroom or AC when you walk in the room. Soon got used to it. Staff friendly. Need to swipe room key to make the lift ascend.

Quick check in, compact room but quiet, decent facilities, only down side was the beds - our double was two singles pushed together which we both found very uncomfortable! Only stayed for one night so bearable but wouldn’t have been happy if I’d been staying longer. Otherwise good.

Good value, central location

Pros: Price, location, good clean bathroom.
Cons: Decor could be a little less dull.
Location: South of centre; cafés nearby for breakfast, near a few buildings of interest but a 15-minute walk to the shopping area.
I just wanted somewhere cheap to stay centrally, and that's what I got. The room was fairly basic-looking; but it had the essentials (wannabe bookshelf in chalk-style print on the wall though!). A little road noise, but I wouldn't be without earplugs (and to their credit, they provided some for those who don't sleep like a log with background traffic). Check-in/out was efficient. There's a mini bar area adjoining the reception area (which I didn't use). If you want to stay one night because you're going to an event far from home (like me) then this could work well, but it's nothing special -- not a place you'd spend much time in.
