We arrived at this hotel on February 20 early in the morning.The staff was very friendly (better than a five-star hotel). We left our luggage in a safe area until the time of check-in (arround 12).they gave us two electronic cards for the room when we checked in for a twin room on the second floor. The room was very...

Decent quality budget accommodation, friendly & helpful staff. Beds were comfortable enough. Perfect for a night or two on a budget. I found the bathroom to be a little claustrophobic - it felt a bit like an airplane bathroom with a shower added in. But otherwise, it was fine.

I decided to try this due to the price. Having used EasyJet many times with no problems I thought this would be the same standard. Visited with my 17 year old son and was presented with a double room. NO! They did immediately change us to a twin room. The floor was dirty, socks had to be kept on; the...

Well let's say that when for a change you want to go for a budget stay just search a bit harder. The pictures are quite misleading. I choose a very standard room but while entering it had more the looks of a prison. No windows, dirt on the floor, the occasional hairs that clearly aren't yours. Kinda sure that when...

Is a really cheap hotel. Perfect for couples or young people that makes a quick visit to the city and will be in the room just to sleep. No space to put your clothes, no open windows, no nothing. Just a bed and a bathroom smaller than the ones in motorhomes. Anyway, good for that, a weekend with your long-term...

The room itself was exactly what we expected... very small with only a bed and toilet/shower cubicle. We've stayed in rooms like these before (very similar to Generator Hostels) but never experienced a room so hot!! There is no way to control the heating in the room and has to be done by the front desk.. I don't believe the...

When booking a hotel and when you actively opt for a hotel that cost in the region of £170 for a 3 night stay in the city then you should be prepared to get what you paid for. This is basically a no frills box in amongst a load of other boxes with the kind of bed you asked for,...

Firstly, the room was so small it was ridiculous. There was no natural ventilation or light. The blind was broken and couldn't be adjusted, it was down fully the whole trip. In hindsight we should've checked out and found somewhere habitable. It's cheap, but OMG the amenities are so lacking.. I'd never go back, the website shows some great rooms...

Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. A lot of reviewers were complaining about the size and I thought - well you only sleep there so what is the problem. When I actually saw the room I understood. it was like a cell - too claustrophobic. Nowhere to put your things. No way to open the window and let the...

“Get a room with a window if possible - there isn't a bedside table, so the windowsill doubles as somewhere to put phones/glasses etc.”
