Night on the town
Small hotel, small rooms, but great location for the night life. It is perfectly adequate for a nights sleep. It is clean and tidy, at good price. It is not for a long stay but for a night or two perfectly adequate. It is whatbit is,it ain't whatbit aint!

Great stay
I only stayed one night, but was very comfortable. Great place to stay, very central and staff were friendly and helpful. There is no elevator, so if you have an accessibility issue I would not recommend this location, but other than that everything was fantastic.

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Despite your email confirmation, the hotel was unaware of our booking. One assumed the picture was of the hotel, it wasn't. It was the view FROM the hotel. No air conditioning or fan and no lift to second floor and difficult for my wife to go upstairs. Staff pleasant and helpful
