We booked 2 double rooms, one with a king bed and another with twin beds. The king bed room was a bit of a joke for the price we paid. The room was so small that we had trouble moving around. The air con did not work. We called reception to be rudely told that aircon would be switched on only from May and that we should open the windows if we felt too hot. We had room 203 and room 205 which meant that we were on the 2 nd floor with unbearable street noise. We did not sleep all 3 nights that we spent there. Breakfast was a mediocre affair with limited choices and 2 coffee machines that worked sporadically. The TV did not work in the room and we had to call house services to help. I found it surprising that everyday, we had to call housekeeping for a kettle to make our morning coffee. This IS NO 4 star hotel! It is just an overpriced budget hotel! Utter rubbish. The only good point is the location. Close to the train station and eating options. Won't ever stay here again.
