3 out of 5

A good place to put your head for a night while travelling further the next day. Publicity was misleading in location is actually right down town with no parking available for guests; just street parking in the midst of the night life hub. Photos suggest it is stand alone on large section.

The staff were helpful and friendly. The facilities were above standard, especially for the price.

Very noisy. Great for party animals. Not good for a restful stopover.

The walls are very thin, the location is great but the noise from other rooms and from the bar below kept me awake both nights. I understand the hotel is for younger people, but I will not stay in the hotel again.
