Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

basic room, outdated but all we wanted was somewhere cheap in the centre so did the job. Had booked a double and single bed but when Dawid met us at reception he offered us three single beds which we availed off and were thankful for. Dawid was very friendly and approachable. other lady was a little less approachable on our arrival but seemed friendly at checkout. the hotel also took care of our keys for us when we went out at night.

We stayed here one night and this hotel is fine for a place to stay in the evening. We were lucky enough to have a room at the back of the hotel and therefore didn't encounter the noise that some others may have. I would probably suggest when booking a room, be specific and ask for a room at the back away from the bars and pubs.

It is in a pretty good location not in the centre of Derry but definately within walking discatnce to the walled city (say 5minutes). The rooms looked a little dated and not as clean as you may expect but this place was by no means a dive. At 38 pounds I don't you can expect something modern or 5 star.

Food wise, we have problems trying to find a decent place to eat and many of the places were pubs or nightclubs. There is a Chinese Retaurant round the corner from the hotel and a pizza place that we tried - only on the basis that there appeared to be a few people eating there. It was surprisingly not that bad and had massive servings - the service was also good.

The staff were pretty friendly and helpful when queried.

From strange checkin! You have to take a lift to the dark and strange smelling reception area. To the cracked tiles and silicone filled window in the bathroom!!! This hotel has only recently been converted into a hotel!! So basically is a new build! What shoddy workmanship, it’s dark smelly and decor is sparse. Breakfast not even continental standards.

ONLY positive is the location for exploring Derry it’s very central.

Stay here as a last result!!!!

The whole place is old and run down, although clean. You have to buzz to be let in to the building which is a concern! The room was large but just very old and run down. There was no hot water when we arrived. The staff were nice enough. No bar area and no hot breakfast available. For the price I would not recommend.

Absolutely terrible do not stay here.

Stayed here from fri 2nd to sunday 4th of March for a weekend break with my girlfriend.

1. I am from Belfast in Northern Ireland and they quite controversially printed my receipt out and put my nationality as Irish which is rude and unacceptable especially as Londonderry itself is in Northern Ireland which is British as the people who live here are. This made me feel very intimidated not to mention the sinn fein election posters and people in celtic and gaelic shirts walking around the hotel and streets, making this part of Londonderry feel like you were staying up the Falls road in Belfast

2.Dont expect a good nights sleep as the beds are rock hard.

3. No hot water the morning we were leaving meaning had to boil a kettle to get washed. A problem that i see is an ongoing one reading others reviews.

4.No one seemed to take responsibility or offer money off as a gesture for the cold water had a "theres nothing we can do attitude"

5.Television wasnt working properly. Not been tuned in right so fuzzy picture.No good if you wanna watch t.v

6. All the wall lights where hanging off the wall. The one behind the bed where a headboard should be hanged down so you could not lean against the wall when laying on bed.

7. Absolutely freezing. No heating on in rooms. Rang reception the first night to get them to turn the heat on because my girlfriend was complaining to me. The secound night we just went to a restaurant and went straight under the covers to keep warm as reception did not answer phone.

8. No hairdryer in rooms, or shower gel. Just a tiny bar of soap. All standard in 99% of hotels, even the travelodge in Carrickfergus Northern Ireland.

9. First night we arrived i had to get our room changed as we where given a room with two single beds.

10. Really noisey. Bars all along that street including directly below not to mention the nightclub across the road which must have went on to 3 in the morning.

11.No parking. We had to pay around £40 parking in the multi storey a couple of doors down. Didnt open untill 12.30 on a sunday which wasnt explained at hotel reception which meant we had to sit around for 40 mins waiting to get into my car in the freezing foyer.

12. No room service at all and the restaurant looks a dive with only 3 main courses available.No breakfast included.

This is not yet a tourist city. There is a very sectarian threatening feel to the city still. Makes Belfast look like a walk in the park. Its like Belfast has moved forward to the 21st century while Londonderry is still stuck in the troubles era. Not a good place to go especially for the unionist population or for people with English or Scottish accents, or Welsh.

The hotel is located on top of a bar, so if you want to go to bed early, bring ear plugs. Had we known it was located on top of a bar we would have found another location.

Knowing the rates are low because they "trim" the extras we were not surprised that shampoos, etc were not available but were shocked to hear they would charge a fee to rent an alarm clock. The towels were terribly thin and so were the walls.

VERY dissapointing.

The hotel is pretty impressive from the outside and the rooms are generally clean. The bathrooms however are a totally different matter. The bath and sink had huge cracks in them (which is thoroughly unhygenic). I asked to be moved but they were full so I was stuck.

The hotel is on a kinda party street so I wouldn't go here at any time because there are a couple of colleges nearby and the college kids party every night! The noise of screaming, drunkeness, police vehicles, breaking glass etc went on til about 3am. Avoid at all costs if you can!

I travel a lot and I have stayed in lots of hotels but this hotel is not a hotel it should be called a flop house. The room(s) were dirty and the pillows had dark stains like dried blood on them, even through we were 2 to a room there was only one towel and a piece of soap the size of a dollar coin. I could not wait to get out of this place. There is no drive up for cars (city no stopping zone) Parking is around the next street in a city parking lot but fairly cheap and the location is close to many good restaurants and pubs, the lobby is on the second floor from street level (elevator working) there is only one night person (a bit rude) so if you need something in your room you have to go down to the front desk to get it. DON"T ASK FOR A WAKE UP CALL, THEY WILL TAKE IT BUT THEY WON'T CALL YOU.

You have to pay - I have mentioned this is my review of July 2016. There is parking across the road in a public car park and there is a high-rise beside the hotel. The choice is yours as to which one you use. We have always used the one across the road, as it is very reasonable for an overnight, but can be very busy depending on the day of the week you are staying.
