How to Get There
arrived for 2 nights, underground parking was perfect but at an additional cost of 22Euro per night. Public areas were 4* but as a beautique hotel thats as far as it goes. The rooms were very shabby and filled with dated furniture which did need a good clean/dusting. Ripped and worn lamp shades in both the bed room and bathroom . The bed linen duvet cover actually had a large rip down the side although clean. The bathroom very dark and dated. The wall and floor tiles needed re-grouting or replacing. the bath was coming away from the sealant which left black mould around the bath. The shower glass screen didn't reach the bath side and therefore the floor got very wet and slippy. Cleanliness of the bathroom was very poor, and the basin plug hole hadn't seen any attention.
We decided against breakfast in the hotel and as we were on a walking tour left early and ate in one of the many cafes on the way.
When asked at check out if we'd enjoyed our stay we mentioned that the room was past its best and was in need of some attention our 44euro parking charge was deducted form our bill.
Based by Warwick is a good hotel, with classic decor, and excellent location. The restaurant is defined as Asian fusion. Even though I struggle with the fusion notion, I must say the restaurant is very good - from the Pad Thai to the glazed duck, the bar is also well served with Belgian beers and international drinks. The decor strikes as old fashioned, but it’s clean and authentic.
The hotel is located in a nice area, but itself it has several flaws: breakfast not really rich (they "run out" of fruit jam, no toaster), very small gym (no trademills), empty minibar in the room, very limited choice for room service. I was there for 2 nights for business with a group, and we received different treatments (e.g., a colleague of mine got a free drink at arrival, I was not even offered it). As many reviews are mentioning, furniture is very old, but this is not an issue to me. What is more important, is that bathrooms are very old and barely functioning. They need to renovate sinks and water flow. My organization paid for the stay, thus I cannot comment on price. I would not go back if I have a choice.
