Great place
I didn't know The Student Hotels before, and was really amazed to discover the concept. The hotel was close to the center, comfy and clean. We used the huge parking lot nearby. Very friendly staff.

Never Again
I came to this hotel hoping for a good nights sleep. The first night there was constant noise from drunk people in the courtyard outside until 5AM. My window was closed. I’m not a light sleeper. I went downstairs at 5 AM because I had given up on getting any sleep, the receptionist was very rude to me, spoke to me like I was a criminal. Note: I have been a customer of The Student Hotel for 5+ years and stayed in multiple locations, some more than once. Due to this experience I will never again use one of these hotels or their restaurants. Also you might want to consider replacing the filters on the ventilation systems or increasing the cleaning schedules because the levels of dust in the air and on surfaces throughout the hotel was very bad, especially in this time of a pandemic the air quality is so important.
