3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The Bank Hotel is stunning and very well designed and maintained. It is also conveniently placed. However, I did not extend my stay because the rooms next to the street on the ground floor are unacceptably loud. So, rather than having a nice sleep, I was woken up early by people outside (shop keepers mainly).
