To be fair I checked in at the last minute. But if had known the size of the room I was paying for I would never have went for it. There was no information as to the room I was booking and on arrival the first I knew of the size of room was from the receptionist who informed me as I had booked last minute then the room was rather small, as if I was responsible for it. Looking back now I should have withheld payment and left. Totally ruined my visit to the capital thanks very much. Basically went back to the room and got my head down and left first thing. Was so annoyed I went somewhere else for breakfast. Well you live and learn and I certainly won't be back in a hurry.

We spent 4 nights in this hotel and it was a really nice stay : spacious, luminous & warm room (it was about -10°C outside), little but very clean and handy bathroom, TV, free wireless access, huge and very good breakfast... The only thing was the noise, as our room was on the frontside, but nothing unbearable, and the noise from other rooms. Moreover, you will have to take the bus to go to the city center (£1.20 single adult, 6 min). There are a lot of buses stopping just in front of the building very regularly so do not be affraid, you will not have to wait too long !
