The staff was very helpful. When I complained that the room they put me in was too small then upgraded me to a nice room.
The bizarre room numbering system. Odd number rooms are one side of the hotel and even the other..
I would never go back again! Please be aware, this hotel doesn't even come close to the 4-star hotel they pretend they are.
My stay at Brittania can be concluded in a series of awful events. From the lobby it looks ok, but the staff is slow so take some time to check-in. Having booked a double room, they ignored that put me in a basement single room without any windows and it was almost impossible to turn around. It was that small! During my stay the air conditioning started leaking and I got moved out of the room, into another room that had chewing gum in the bed and on top of that the wake-up service phoned me in the middle of the night to wake me up? I have not even asked for that service!! Upon check-out all was ignored and nothing was done. That is not a service you would expect from paying around 300 pounds per night.
My compliments to the Concierge. He gave the service and arranged like a 4-star hotel Concierge. Good there were small occasions for diner. When you do not need an invoice, express check-out was possible.
As a 4 star Hotel; It is incomprehensible that there was a long line every day for check-in and check-out. And 2 staff members only to process. With my check-out I complained and 1 extra was deployed. All hotel windows were very dirty. The room temperature could not be regulated in my room. Two of 3 elevators were in repair, every day. Guests were stuck every day. Horrible coffee.
Old ,poor services and management and concierge. No gym
