For some nightlife options a little closer to the hotel, The Troubadour Cafe has a past filled with legendary names, as Jimi Hendrix and Paul Weller have both played here and Oliver Reed used to prop up the bar.

There have been some disputes with the bill reported at Dylan’s Apartments and some guests have been asked to pay in full in advance, so be sure to check you bill and query any inconsistencies with the hotel staff. Some guests have also reported that furniture and fittings were worn in some of the units, so it is best to request to see the room first and it may be worth shopping around before you book to make sure this is the right choice for you; however, the price is fair and the location excellent, so you may be willing to overlook such annoyances.
