We booked at the City Inn since it seemed to be a lot cheaper, for a 4 star, than anything we were getting in Bath (which is just a 10 minute train journey away)....but as soon as we got to the hotel and saw the room we decided to cancel our reservation and go straight to Bath!...the rooms are absolutely tiny, not particularly clean, the corridor stank....this is by no means even a 3 star (forget 4 star which is what they advertise i think)!!....never again!!
City Inn Bristol- Not the best
Stayed here recently for two nights and as a business traveller can easily say that its one of the worst hotel I have stayed in. Had to be moved twice until I got a half decent room. The so called gym is tiny. Another guest was given the key to my room. At breakfast I had to wait 30 minutes before my food arrived as they got my order mixed up. Room wasnt especially clean. Staff however are very polite and the food in the restaurant is quite good.
Great place to stay!
The City Inn is within easy walking distance from Temple Meads train station and some really great restaurants. The staff were fabulous - professional and very pleasant. The reception staff even helped us find a rental car for a last minute trip to the Cotswolds and personally delivered more soap when we ran out. Our room was very pleasant and comfortable with all the amenities we could ask for. The breakfast buffet, included in the price of the room, was quite good. After "roughing it" in a couple tiny (crummy) hotels in London, this hotel was a fantastic treat for the price. A great value!
Rooms are tiny
This is a relatively new hotel but the rooms are tiny. Hardly room for a bed and a small chair. Makes opening your luggage very difficult. Bath room is also tiny with a shower so small an average size man has difficulty getting into it. Forget the food, try the San Carlos instead.
Great value weekend rate in this slighty sterile hotel
Great value weekend rate. Exceedingly polite staff in the restaurant serving above average hotel food.
Clean modern bedroom, pleasant bathroom with shower only. No hesitation in reccomending this slightly sterile hotel.
having stayed in two below mediocre hotels in london, it was a relief to stay at the city inn. the room was spacious, at least in london terms, very modern, great taste, and spotlessly clean. i got a great rate for the room as well. the breakfast, though you have to pay a hefty 11pounds for it, was very good. i would definitely stay here again.
Conveniant to the train station only
I stayed here for 3 weeks in December 2002 whilst I was working at Temple Meads Station, five minutes walk away. At £80 a night it isn't the cheapest in Bristol, but the rooms are clean, the breakfasts are good - the usual smorgasboard of cereals, fruit, hot dishes, toast etc. I don't know whether I would recommend the evening meal as it is somewhat overpriced and the service is a bit slack. Still, the staff on the desk are helpful and pleasant. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the City Centre or Broadmead, but quite a long way from the Clifton Tourist District (catch the bus from Victoria Street and not outside the Hotel). Don't bother drinking here, as there are two nice historic pubs close by, the Shakespeare and Seven Stars which are a lot cheaper. OK for a 2-3 night stay !
Not bad - avoid the food
Nice modern looking hotel and very convenient to Bristol Temple Meads Station. But don't bother eating here as the food is very expensive and not really what you look for from room service. My television periodically didn't work also.
The City Inn isn't cheap about £99 per room per night, but it is well worth it as far as the hotel itself goes. The decor is funky and modern as well as being clean and comfortable. The restaurant is one of the best you'll find in Bristol, but the location isn't great. Although just a 10-minute walk from the city centre, it is located on a busy road, and certainly not convenient for the Clifton area. Still, a really nice hotel.
Convient to train station
This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Temple Meads trains station, on a busy road. The hotel was very friendly and the rooms clean and modern. The gym was disappointing (just a small room with some older machines). Still, it's a convenient place to stay.

Bath a beautiful city. Checked out the Roman baths and wondered how they had such an advanced system of rooms bathing areas and exercise areas. Modern day gyms aren't that well set out.

Brisk cruise of plymouth harbour early this morning. Its also a naval base and this vessel passed us on its way out. Then to Buckfast Abbey. A monastry still in existence today. The church and gardens well kept by the monks. Passing by Exeter in Devon on our way to Wells. Another old village with magnificent cathedral and buildings. Its always a …
Since the house at 'No. 1 Royal Crescent' doesn’t open until 10 we decided to walk through Victoria Park and check out the botanical gardens. The park is very nice with a large playground for kids and several grassy areas for picnicking or walking your dog. We even saw a few runners our for their morning jog. The entrance to the botanical gardens is at the far end of the park. For the most part it is a wild ...
... valuable in today’s currency, it is the sheer quantity from a 200 year span that is impressive.
When we finished at the Baths, we walked around the corner to the Huntsman Inn to attend the ‘Bizarre Bath’ Street theatre at 8. It’s a combination walk around Bath with humorous commentary and a bit of magic. If you like British humor at all, this is a really fun evening out and a good way to walk off ...

As yet we have given very little thought to clothes and personal items but in reality we shouldn't need much.
