          • Single
            5.0

            Room was quite spacious

            Previous occupier's pubic hairs found on the pillow...only 2 pillows proveded...rude/ignorant reception staff...having to ask for hot water at breakfast time, stewed tea and coffee only available as hot drinks, no fruit teas available, carbohydrate rich breakfast options available, hardly any choice of proteins, 'warm' pastries were cold and only a few were in the cabinet which were not replaced when taken...shower pressure was very low...fan in room did not work and because windows doe not open it was like sleeping in an oven...one of the lifts wasn't working for the whole stay.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            it was close to the shopping centre and amenities the hotel was clean comfortable and relaxing.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            I liked the John Malkowitz themes stuff everywhere and the simplicity and style of the rooms.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            It was reasonably priced and very convenient. The room was changed immedaitely on discovering some idiot had been smoing in there.

          • Group of friends
            6.2

            it was ideal location for the CIA, shopping, and central station. Shame none of the windows opened as it was really hot, fans were big help but not ideal. Didn't see many staff as only there one night. Rooms were basic but reasonably comfortable. Breakfast was good. Would probably stay over again for next Westlife concert next year!!!

            No opening windows, even though other higher hotels had opening windows. Exterior looks like it could do with a good clean. Not over keen on the retro look, but then thats personal preference.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            We all really enjoyed our stay the hotel was welcoming, clean and comfatable and above all it was great value for money with the nice breakfast as well! it was right by the CIA so for concerts is amazing and only a few ound taxi drive to bars such as tiger tiger.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            we had a problem with our room the staff were very good and sorted it out and we were moved straight away

            the problem we had in our first room was the fan wasnt working . i dont think the fan was big enough due to the size of the window and the hot weather we are having you could have done with a couple free standing ones

          • Family with children
            9.6

            We always stay for concerts at cia, so locality, price, cleanliness, continental breakfast

            Lack of plug sockets for using the kettle. Lead on kettle not long enough, plugged into on the floor socket- dangerous. Breakfast to go is a brilliant idea which l like. But needs more content ie croissants maybe.

          • Couple
            6.6

            The breakfast was nice and the room was servicable.

            the lift took forever and there was only one working.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            excellent location to the cia great value for money
