Price and location, its a room at the end of the day to sleep so depends if you are there for a few nights or just one. It is perfectly adequate after a night out in my view, but we all have differing tastes. worth a try

The worst hotel in Brighton! The only chance you have of a swimming pool is if the century old or more rusty pipes break!! Which could well happen. The place is falling apart and filthy!
