Very nice place for a short stay. Lovely touch is a self help bar with a wide range of drinks. Rooms were not the biggest but comfortable. Food on offer was very good. Generally, highly recommended hotel with lovely staff.

My stay at the Benjamin was by all accounts a really good choice. Service from check-in to check-out was excellent. The self help bar was a lovely touch to enjoy pre-dinner drinks. Most definitely will be recommending it to fellow travelers.!

Hotel is on a street filled with night life. Very busy area if you are looking for Pubs and restaurants. Service was okay, checked out after one night. Management didn't try to resolve any issues to ensure I stay. Won't be back in a hurryMore
