    • The location is convenient, this hotel offers genuinely good quality of service for a moderate price and technical gadgets in the rooms is amazing.

      The staff need to make the customers feel valued, not processed.

    • Good value and good location, just 2 minutes walk from Cathedral's square, i liked the central nature of the hotel and the compact nature of the room. Staff are friendly and helpful, superb accommodation for the single traveller. The food is excellent, great variety of beverages.

      Absolutely no service without paying extra, wasn't clear on the website and manager not available. The beds seemed short, no hot chocolate drink.

    • The location was great and gym was high quality. The price was less than i have paid in the past and staff were excellent. The internet was very good, facilities avaialable were relevant.

      Windows didnt open and air conditioning didnt stay on for longer than 5sec pushed, room is too small, the gluten free choices on your menu could be better for snack food.
