The Clarence truly was a wonderful property, very charming hotel in the heart of it all. The staff was extremely helpful and super friendly. We weren’t prepared for the noisy bars below, but other than that a great property.

Bed sheets did not come close to covering the bed. I was touching raw mattress. My view out the window was cement and windows always open. Key to door was very confusing and tough to use.

We booked a superior room based on the website pictures of the room. We were sadly disappointed with the room provided. It was small and showing a lot of wear and tear. The hotel was apparently fully booked so they could not move us. The staff were very pleasant and understood our disappointment but unable to assist.

VERY disappointed with the hotel. They put us in an extremely small room. We complained and were moved to another room for the second night. The Manager refused to offer any compensation for the inconvenience. He was very dismissive and borderline rude. WILL NOT recommend this hotel, purely based on how we were treated when we checked out.

The rooms are great! The bed comfortable, nice big bathroom with tub and shower. Unfortunately the incredibly loud dance bar that is on the side of the building is open until 2-3 am. You HAVE to close the windows….and then your room can still feel the beat! They have a fan but it is so incredible hot all night that sleeping is difficult! They need to put A/C in the bedrooms. Come on Bono….spend some money on this! Or buy the building next door!!!

Great location! You could walk everywhere or public transportation was readily available. The room was very nice. The staff was great. It was quite noisy at night from outside revelers.
