We sadly didn’t see the best of this hotel.
While the communal areas are bright and modern our room was in desperate need of redecoration. Although generally clean throughout, the carpet had seen better days, the shower was little more than a dribble and there was a musty smell.
The student area the hotel is in was the biggest problem we had however. The streets surrounding the hotel were full of noisy students and others late into the night. Despite it being unseasonably hot we had to close the window in the room to shut out the music, awful drunken singing and the smell of cannabis being smoked nearby - this was after midnight. There was also a number of other less desirable characters congregating nearby at night time. I wouldn’t have felt comfortable walking alone near the hotel at night.
We were charged an additional €25 on check in, which we were told was a fee for the online booking. We are still waiting for a resolution to the query we raised over this with hotels.com. But be aware they may be additional charges as well as the city tax to pay on arrival. Other than this issue, the staff were attentive and helpful whenever we dealt with them.
