Etap Hotel (Leeds)
Advantages: Cheap, clean and nicley located
Disadvantages: Beds were a bit hard
After reading many scary stories about Etap hotels i was a bit nervous about staying there, i had booked up with 4 other girls as a boozy/shooping weekend mainly because it was so cheap (£35 per room per night)
We got a taxi from the train station as we had a lot of luggage but i'm sure its not a long walk (and theres a bus stop i noticed right outside the hotel) and we used taxis to get into town because we couldnt be bothered to walk but again its about a 10/15 min walk (the taxis cost about £4/5 and its worth ringing a private company rather than hailing one)
The hotel looks nice from the outside, quite modern with a big glass reception, checking in was easy, you have fill in a quick form with your details and pay the bill. A swipe card is given to as many people as you want and you use this to access the lifts and room door (although there are stairs too)
The room was a pleasant suprise (after thinking the worst) there was double bed with a bunk over the top complete with ladder. Each bed was made up with a duvet and one pillow and i think there was one hand towel and a floor mat for the shower. There's cleaners every day that change your towels and empty your bins and a do not disturb sign if you don't want them.
There was a shower cubicle right off the room, small but functional but the door is a little see-through so ok if you're not shy! Also there was a separate toilet behind a closed door (with toilet roll) and a sink in the room with large mirrors and a small amount of space to put toiletries.
A desk with a chair and a wall mounted flat screen tv (without remote controller) finished the other side of the room.
Everything seemed clean and neat, theres a lock on the inside of the room door. Obviously the hotel does not compare to the ritz but we thought it was suitable for a place to sleep in and had all that we needed! It seems very popular with groups of people and although reception was a bit packed a times we never really saw many other people on our floor or really heard them!
Around the hotel is a busy main road and what looks like fairly new developments of flats. Theres a great bar called surburban just next door that serves food all day which is modern and comfortable. If you venture round the back of the hotel there is a corner shop and a little cafe that serves full breakfasts for £3.95!
We would definitely recommend this hotel, we had a great time in leeds and if you don't mind basic accomodation this is the place to be!
Summary: Great for a cheap place to sleep in with all your mates
