Needs to be better maintained

We stayed in the Mont Clare overnight when attending a concert. The us was our 2nd stay and might be our last. The room we had this time 422 left a bit to be desired. The bed was so big that you could barely get between it and the window. There was only room for one bedside table so if one of us wanted a drink during the night it either had to be left in the floor or we had to get up for it. Not ideal. The lamp in the one bedside table we had had be tied together with string. You could see that one of the bulbs had been lying against the shade and partially scorched it. This had been tied up with string to try prevent it happening again. Hazardous I would think. The side of the duvet cover also had a rip in it. The bathroom was very clean and they provided the necessary toiletries but no shower hat, this is basic in any hotel I've stayed in. On Saturday morning were were rudely disturbed at 9.45 by housekeeping knocking on our door to see if we were still there. When I told this to the front desk staff on checkout it was just shrugged off. We have stated in many hotels here and abroad and this doesn't and shouldn't happen. Overall the hotel is clean and serviceable, near to the city and nightlife. There are better options though.

The best thing about my stay was...

It was in walking distance of places we wanted to go to

Good Hotel, central location.

The Mont Clare hotel is a good base from which to explore the city. Everything is within walking distance. The rooms are clean and the bathroom comes with bath and overhead shower and toiletries are provided. We did not eat here so cannot comment on the food. Overall a good place to stay.

reasonable hotel

there are good points and bad about this hotel. on the plus side the beds are comfortable, the rooms are warm and the breakfast is good. our room was at the back of the hotel and was quiet. on the down side the hotel itself is a little run down and needs some redecorating. if you don't mind the decor it is a good enough hotel.
