When I was in university, I met an exchange student from University of Leeds. She described the City of Leeds, as an industrial and functional place, without much culture and style. I was pleasantly surprised at all it had to offer when I passed through this cosmopolitan city on a recent trip through England.
From the moment I got off the train, I was impressed. Right beside the train station was my hotel, The Queens Hotel. Now in my experience, quite often the hotel beside the train station is not always the best. Maybe their locations are great, but they can be the hotels that time has forgotten with little to offer than a questionable bed.
