This is a basic budget hotel, in a great location for visitors to Liverpool.
Our room was spacious and very clean, with modern facilities, plenty of daylight and a good bathroom. The bed was comfy, and the room was well air conditioned - not too hot/cold. Facilities included TV, kettle (with tea & coffee), beds, desk & chair. There is also a bar/restaurant in the Hotel.
The hotel is within 2 mins walk of Liverpool Docks and within 10 mins walk of the Echo Arena and Exhibition Centre. An ideal location for gigs, concerts, exhibitions or galleries/exhibitions such as Tate Liverpool or The Beatles Experience.
The hotel’s entrance is right next door to James St Station. First impressions of the lobby make it seem small, but once upstairs it becomes apparent that it’s a sizeable hotel with 5 floors and many rooms. Our visit was midweek, when that area of town was fairly quiet on an evening. We enjoyed a peaceful stay and a good night’s sleep.
Hotel staff are friendly and helpful - although a little too trusting with the key for the luggage storage cupboard. We thought that any ‘chancer’ could ask for the key and help themself to a bag or suitcase. Beware of this if thinking of leaving your valuables behind.
Otherwise, this is a perfectly good, clean and affordable hotel for a stopover in Liverpool.More
