even though we have stayed at the gilson 3 times and another hotel twice before that it was for medical appointments not for sightseeing so we cannot comment on places of interest

Like so many big city centres, best to avoid them at night. Initially, we decided to eat out in city centre - then saw the rough sleepers, drunks and drug users - not very welcoming! Left city centre for a pleasant meal in a pub about two miles away.

2/5 - Disappointing

The old town is OK but east Hull is basically a no-go area in consideration of the many social housing estates. Its a bit grim in Hull
