Great customer service. Very poor bedroom facilities. En-suite was too small, sink was ridiculously small. Very dated. Had forwarded details of our Dietary requirements had no response to the email and no items at breakfast that were gluten and milk free, or plant based. We understood on arrival that half the hotel was being renovated and guest numbers were low. Breakfast was extremely expense for the lack of choice offered. It was disappointing, that said once work is finished it might be different. It’s well located.

Great Location, worn accomdations
The location is excellent for the city center. For New Year’s Eve, you are in the thick of the action. Some things to think about, There are two buildings across the street from each other. The economy rooms are across the street; they were one step up from a youth hostel with a very, very small bath. It has a very limited breakfast buffet, not worth purchasing when there are a significant number of cafes and bakeries in the area. The bar is also minimal. The front desk folks were polite but not sure they were the most knowledgeable. Neither of the buildings has elevators, so the fourth floor is a hike with a large suitcase. The first floor feels like a basement. The place seems to run down and fine for a few nights. Any time longer would be difficult
