This one looks on to the park. Hungarian friends visiting Wales wrote: `Swansea tenyleg nagyon csuf, meg sem alltunk': not very complimentary. There's a lot of bad press about the city. Even the city bards are quick to call it a 'provincial outback', and 'ugly, lovely city', and the celebratory Peter Sager complains in his understated way about the sad and miserable job post-war planners did on restoring the city centre, which was bombed out in the second world war.
- Pros:beautiful view on to the park; stylish in a 1904 kind of way
- Cons:too quiet for my Portuguese friends
