We booked this hotel on a whim via Late Rooms, and I have to say I'm really pleasantly surprised. Beds are really comfy, showers are decent, rooms are nicely finished, check-in is hassle-free and overall I think it's excellent value for money. It's also incredibly central, so ideal for a business trip, city day out, or a concert, as we booked for.
The only thing I'd mention is that when we arrived back at the hotel after our night out (at around three AM – slap my wrist), an obviously sozzled chap had taken it upon himself to hang out by the lifts and take the mickey out of the visitors, which was a bit of a downer. The security guard seemed to be trying to get rid of him, but he still got in a few obnoxious jabs.
Obviously I have no idea if he was a patron of the hotel or not, or indeed how long he'd been hanging round the lobby, but I did find this quite intimidating - perhaps the security staff could be more assertive in moving on anyone worse for wear.
Other than that, though, absolutely no complaints, would stay again & would definitely recommend.
