7.4 Good
Pros:Great location. Rooms were quiet, comfortable and clean. Beds were comfy.
Cons:Bathroom sink was blocked. The hotel (along with all others in the area) massively inflated its prices just because there was a Muse concert on. In my view this is appalling practice and doesn't encourage brand loyalty on my part.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Location of the hotel was really good. You were by foot really fast in the center. Hotel was also really quiet, you were not able to hear neighbors or traffic although close to this hotel there were many pubs and restaurants.
Cons:Breakfast was horrible, absolutely below standard.. There was almost none of healthy food available.. No cheese, ham, vegetables, porridge, berries.. Rooms were ok but there was no minibar, no storage facilities to clothes and bed was really soft which for us was not the preference -> Difficult to sleep long time since lower back was hurting after few hours..
