Alexia Saeck thinks…

"Great location - so close to all the bar and pubs on Long Street, and only a short cab ride to all the major attractions. Staff were super friendly and helpful."

Bedrooms are furnished and there is a basin in every room. Bathrooms are communal. The self-catering kitchen is adjacent to the TV lounge and dining room where you can eat your meal in style or lounge in front of the television on a lazy night. Or lounge on the balcony with a cold drink and watch the happenings on the street.
