We stayed as a family of four in the XL bunk bed room. The room was spacious, clean, and the beds were comfy. The room is next to the front door so can be a bit noisy but you expect a certain amount when in a hotel. As per other reviews the walls are a bit thin, but I would stay again.

Small but convenient
Tiniest room I've ever stayed in but fine for little me for three nights as overlooking river and just a few minutes walk into city centre.
