My Plus North Hotel - Cosmopolitan Leeds

Monday, September 08, 2014

I started this post earlier but it turned in to the Plus North Broke me post! 

I love nosying round hotel rooms and because I remembered to take pictures of my room before I turned it into a tip I thought I'd share where I stayed. 

I stayed at the Cosmopolitan in Leeds which is in a fairly central location, my only bugbear with the location is when I walked up to town when I got there a girl ran past me chasing a lad and I think she'd just been mugged which worried me and I wouldn't want to walk back from the town centre to the hotel on my own at night (I'd be like that in a lot of places do don't let this put you off) 

The location is handy for the train station and the shops as well as loads of bars and the venue for plus north was next door to the hotel. 

Check in was easy, I had a warm welcome and despite arriving in early they let me check in and go to my room. 

I paid £108 for a single room for two mights which seemed expensive at the time of booking but I don't think is too bad. I'd originally booked another budget hotel but changed to this one because of the location and I paid about £5 more but I'd say this is a much nice hotel than what I'd originally booked. 

As i've said it was a single room which was small but I hd plenty of room for my stuff and it was a comfy room.

In real life I don't remember it being so brown! It was also a really light room and as it was on the side of the hotel there was no noise from outside.

There wasn't any heating control but there was a radiator and a ceiling fan which I did need to use.

There is also free WiFi in the bedrooms, I had a pretty strong signal and even managed to watch youtube in my room but I know others who couldn't pick up the WiFi in their room.

The bathroom was a little dated but it was clean and the shower was amazing. Nice and powerful and it stayed a constant temperature.

They also provided toiletries including, shampoo, bath foam, a sewing kit, over night kit with cotton buds and a nail file. A shoe shiner and two ikea pots one with cotton wool balls and another with bath salts (A nice and cute touch)

The only real downside was noisy guests on the friday night arguing in the corridor and doors banging. This was at midnight and 2am so coming home from the pub times. The rooms are opened with a real key which I think was the source of the struggle. I can't blame the hotel for the noise but that was my pet peeve.

I would stay here again and on the Saturday night I had a cracking sleep.

Did you go to Plus North? What was you're hotel room like?
