Easy check in process. Room was very cold when we arrived and we had to go to reception to get them to turn on the heat pump power. The bed was very comfy and we slept well considering we were surrounded by bars. One negative was that there were no towels in the room.

Brilliant location and very helpful staff! Luckily had a room away from the bars but only because I had to wait for nearly 2 hours to check in due to my original room not being cleaned on time.
