Location to where I needed to work.
The room is very small & nothing like the picture on the internet, or indeed the one accompanying the survey. The bed is not comfortable, and sound insulation is virtually non-existent. Not only could I hear every single car that drove past in the street, but I could also hear the guest in the adjoining room snoring throughout the night. The bathroom or rather wetroom with a toilet is miniscule (probably about 1.7m x 1,7m). There is not even a small shelf where 1 can place a toilet bag or the shaving razor. It is true that the hotel is cheap, but price in itself should not exonerate the hotel from presenting the rooms correctly on media. While I was OK for just 1 night, I would not want to spend any extended days in this hotel. I also chose to leave this feedback purely because I felt that the hotel mis-represented facts on media --- something I truly detest.
