A recent stay at the very central Residence hotel. Unfortunately the lift was out of order and the climb to the fourth floor with bags was a challenge. The hotel and rooms are fresh and new, the beds, linen and decor looks great and would not be out of place in New York. The breakfast bag was a nice touch...

Room was well appointed and we appreciated the breakfast delivered to our door every morning. Overall we enjoyed our stay, only area for improvement would be the rooms were very warm and we had to open the window for ventilation....

Stayed there 30/04-02/05/17. The location is perfect - very noisy though because of the nearby bars, early morning deliveries, buskers and road cleaning etc., so bear that in mind. Didn't bother us too much. The lift wasn't working which isn't great when you have heavy bags and your room is on the second floor. The guy on the desk directed...

This was a fantastic hotel. Everything has been thought of. Fabulous room and everything brand new and finished to a high standard. Netflix in room was great and the breakfast bag was a lovely touch. Will definitely recommend to friends. We stayed mid week and got a fantastic rate for the quality of the room.
