2/10 Poor

Rude, dirty and stinks of smoke. Did not help with luggage and made us feel intimidated. The practically kicked us out from their lobby after arriving early hours of the morning while waiting for check in. Toilets are disgusting and dirty. Luggage was left in the corridor where any one could have walked off the street and taken it. Unsafe and not family friendly. Would never ever recommend. We have to pay an extra £800 to stay at another hotel. The workers here are liars - lying to Expedia saying we had check in and that we were given a deluxe room - lies! We booked standard and we didn’t even get to the room after your rudeness!

6/10 Good

The staff was polite and respectable. They did their best to help us.The hotel is clean. Our reservation was a standard room, but they put us in the first day in an economy room, but in the second day they transfered us to a standard room. Something which was very disappointed, there was a door between us and the next room, we could hear everything from the voice of the next guests !! it was so disturbable!!
