    Great location and great room for our group of 8. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The only thing I would comment was the shower drain was clogged so it drain properly. Otherwise the trip was great. Would highly recommend

    Nomads was a brilliant place to stay. Bathroom facilities in the ensuite were perfect for a couple. The sliding door needs to be a bit more secure, but other than that everything was perfect. Super clean and super friendly staff 😻

    Good central location. Like the 24hour reception desk and left luggage facility. Room on the 3rd floor is best. Balconies are shared with room beside yours.

    Worked fine, little weird having to get app to use the facility rather than a key or key cards.

    Super central and convenient but would not come back. Room and bedding was okay, but the bathroom didn’t feel like it was cleaned often and we kept running out of toilet paper. Doors activated by app which was inconvenient as it needed wifi and bluetooth. Wifi would drop out periodically and you’d have to reconnect which was inconvenient when waiting for a message while getting ready. Plugs were only in one corner of the room, so made it hard to charge things overnight without worrying
