Outdated and falling to bits

yazdaank2018 Business - 24/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

What a joke. Don’t be fooled by the professional photos. The whole building is crumbling. Noisy plumb work and everything falling to bits! As for the cleaners, they must be on strike!! I won’t be staying there again!

We had to book in here at the last mi ute as our other hotel cancelled our reservation without notice. Staff here were lovely and welcoming. Our room was beautiful and clean. Free use of tea and coffee facilities in our room, as well as soft drinks and water provided in our mini fridge. We ordered room service on our last night here and the food was delicious. Served quickly enough and still hot when it arrived in our room. Thanks for such a positive experience!

Overall ok but the bath plug situation was disappointing. The bath plug was missing, reception advised at 2130 we would have to wait until 0800 the following morning for housekeeping to arrive for this to be resolved.

Good but not great

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

Alexutz_m Business - 13/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

First of all, it was a very good surprise to see the Fast CheckOut box - much more efficient and improved experience. The negatives: I have requested a quiet room not facing the street or near the lift - I got one on the corner facing the street and in front of the lift; the welcome tray has chocolate/ fruit - not hygienic as not wrapped; rather noisy in the evening when the guests return to their rooms; coffee/ tea not refilled after the first night.

Disappointed

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

Passenger13926692298 Couples - 12/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

We stayed in room 510 for 2 nights 27/28 December 2019, This room is quite small and extremely noisy all night due to what sounded like an air con unit running. The bathroom has a cracked sink a loose door handle and toilet seat should be obvious to cleaners to report these issues. Came back friday night to pungent smell from bathroom possibly from use of dirty cleaning cloths or mop,went to make a tea only to find no teabags,milk or biscuits, Both mornings woken by cleaners starting at 8-00am. not acceptable when you do not have to check out till 12-00pm.We have used Accor hotels several times and found this to be the worse one will not be using this one again. The only friendly staff were in the dining room at breakfast which we did find to be of quite reasonable quality. We think due to location and area of this hotel things should be a lot better.

small room,bathroom sink cracked,toilet seat loose,toilet door handle loose,Noisy all night possibly from air con unit?Came back Saturday evening to find disgusting smell in bathroom maybe due to use of dirty cleaning cloths or mop.Went to make a tea only to find no tea or milk or biscuits. Both mornings we were disturbed by the cleaners starting at 8.00 am. On Monday morning the cleaner was knocking on the door to clean the room at 9.00am when we did not have to check out till 12.00pm. We stayed in room 510. On the plus side comfy bed and reasonable breakfast. Overall very disappointed the only friendly staff worked in the dining room. We have stayed in several Accor hotels and found this hotel the worst ever.
