My home for 8 days Apr 13, 2013
I found that the balance between the overall quality of this hotel and the price to be average. I've paid more for less, and less for more.

The location is good in a general sense. It is close to downtown and to a train station (about 1/2 miles). However, the area may seem a bit dodgy to some people as it is located in a gentrifying wharf district that can seem foreboding at night. On the downside, it is uphill to both downtown and the train station, and it is quite steep at points.

While some other reviews have complained about cleanliness, I did not see anything wrong with my room or the hotel. It is old, there is no doubt about that, but it was maintained and regularly cleaned.

It had the basics you would in the room... electric kettle with a selection of coffees and teas, along with biscuits and real milk for the coffee in the fridge. hairdryer in the bathroom, iron in the closet. Wireless internet was not free, but it didn't appear on my bill.

The bed... the mattress seemed to have been constructed of two singles attached together, and there was a noticeable and unpleasantly hard edged border between them. As long as I wasn't lying on that it was ok, but it limited comfortable space on the bed.

The bathroom was large, with a light switch and it's own space heater mounted on the ceiling. There was no bath, and the shower was designed to drain into a hole in the center of the tiled bathroom floor. Perfectly usable for as single traveler, but not entirely convenient for the second person showering.

While I had no need of any type of service when I was there, it needs to be noted that the hotel is only staffed during business hours and for anything after hours you have to call someone.
