Poor 2.0
The Most Disappointing Hotel...EVER!
Amazing building, large room, sadly nothing else matched that. The rooms were dirty and down at heel. It felt like it was last refurbished in the 1980s. Rather cheap coffee machine that was not stocked up. The large window had gaps in it, letting in the cold. Uncomfortable furniture, stained carpets. Difficult shower. Unreliable WiFi. And most annoyingly, terrible lighting! No lighting from the ceiling, instead 3 ambient floor lights. In winter practically impossible to see anything or read. We had to keep the TV and bathroom lights on for some extra illumination. Reception seemed oblivious to customers.

The hotel, in a Water Tower, was beautifully decorated, the building itself was fascinating as it was in the round. The view from the restaurant / bar at the top was fantastic. The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean and tidy. The staff were very friend;y and helpful and gave good advice for tourist attractions etc. Would happily recommend to others as it was easy to reach by taxi and the public transport

We stayed in a Premium Double Room, which had great city views. The room was very spacious. The walk to the old town was a good 15 minutes. Disappointed that although I had stated in an email that our trip was to celebrate my husband and my birthdays therr was no mention of this during our stay.

Good 6.0
A nice place but needs a refurb
A nice hotel with huge rooms. The service is great but the bathrooms are old and need a face lift. The water is incredibly hot so be careful not to burn yourself in the old showers The building has superb city views however the roof terrace is now shut indefinitely until the new owners decide what to do with the space.
