This hotel is very centrally located in the mailbox district with an excellent choice of bars and restaurants.

Central business district, good restaurants, near to work, clean, modern. What could possibly go wrong ?. The hotel is located above a row of theme bars. The one below my room must have been a retro bar. I know that now because I was tormented into the wee small hours by a 80's disco which sounded like it was being...

A simply designed hotel, in the center of the city. Food mall located next door was the most convenient part of the stay in the AC Hotel. The room, the service,the features,the front desk, certainly don,t remind you that this hotel is a part of the Marriott chain. Therefore over priced for what it is.

Great central hotel, 3 min walk from train station/shopping centre, right next to restaurants, overlooking canal, Tesco express next door, room was immaculate, complimentary mini bar, comfy bed, great breakfast selection. Absolutely excellent. Top tip, if u come from the train station direction u have to go into the Mailbox shopping centre to get to the hotel.
