Overall not very good. The staff isn’t very helpful; also take forever to clean the rooms despite the fact you have to put sheets on the bed yourself. Not every floor has a bathroom, and every door requires a key card which becomes very annoying when trying to use the bathroom. Only has 1 elevator that is slow. Facilities are not clean and outdated. Staff makes you check out and then check in when you extend your reservation. Security is the only plus, besides the location.

Booked a double room with shared bathroom, good value for money. If you’re visiting on a weekend music is played until 5am in the pub on level 1 so bring earphones!
