Booked two rooms for two nights. Price was right, and you get what you pay for. Nothing fancy. No elevator (that I saw) most rooms on bottom level - so down a flight of stairs. Small rooms with twin beds. Small bathroom. More like a B and B than hotel. Location was great. Right near university and plenty of restaurants/bars...

The room was okay, the breakfast was okay. Hotel had a musty smell throughout. Plumbing was noisy. Best thing about this hotel was the location for pubs, clubs the hydro. Would say it was bit overpriced compared to other hotels of the same standard.

Stayed here last night for a stop over on our way up to the highlands. First of all I have to say we got a brilliant deal on the internet for just under £60. It really was a good deal and we would stay here again if it was £70. We took a ground floor room by reception. Comfy bed....

Great location. About a 20 minute walk from the Charing Cross train station. A close walk to a lot of great restaurants and pubs as well as a museum. A 12 euro Uber ride to the airport.
