I have stayed in nicer council blocks than this hotel. The stair cases and hallways are filthy, the carpet is ancient and threadbare. wait till you enter the rooms. Cheap mattresses. No towels. No toiletries. They should pay you to stay here

Basic Hotel!
Very 2 star! Very basic with no facilities. Would not stay here again too basic for the money. Bed hard and the pillows were so hard. Stayed in basement bedroom which needs redecorating and another lightbulb would help.

High cost, poor value.
No room servicing on one day (bin not emptied, bed not made up). Stairwells to rooms dirty and dusty. General decor very poorly maintained and any repairs of poor quality. No tea/coffee making facilities. No wardrobe and only 1 hanger for exposed clothing. Single bed cheap but functional. Got bitten by something on leg overnight. Won't be visiting again.

Usselt og meget dårlig betjening.
Lad være med at booke dette hotel. Jeg har rejst meget og aldrig oplevet så usselt et hotel. Vi blev ved ankomst kl 2 om natten bedt om at afbestille vores betalte reservation gennem og i stedet betale direkte til ham. Da vi ikke ville dette kunne vi ikke få værelset og blev sendt på gaden med 2 børn. Vi fik dog lov til at se værelset først, og det var så usselt så vi var kun glade for, at komme væk derfra. Var ærgerlig over ikke selv at have læst de mange dårlige anmelder om hotellet inden bookingen. Det gør jeg aldrig igen.
