Social and fun

Accused of shooting some expensive racing pigeons, punk rockers The Clash stood trial in this very building in 1978. Our lively basement venue in Clink78 takes inspiration from them – in both name and spirit! (No shooting of racing pigeons though – we’ve got to draw the line somewhere!)
On Fridays and Saturdays, we have our resident DJs on the decks. From Hip Hop to Motown – with a few 90’s classics thrown in for good measure.

Good
Sufficient but attention SDB hygiene

Bar / atmosphere at the top. The correct room for the price. On the other hand, bathroom really not clean and nauseating smell.

Have a good stay

Good reception and good stay in Clink78. Small room of 4 where you must not be modest or want too much privacy. Bar area, very friendly kitchen and welcoming staff. Sanitary rudimentary, but enough for the stay.
