After 40 metres, turn left onto Granby Street for 300 metres. Turn left onto Belvoir Street, and the Mercure is on the left. 

From Syston train station, catch the number 5 bus to Leicester. Arrive at The Haymarket in Leicester after 24 stops which will take around 25 minutes. From there, walk along Belgrave Gate to the Clock Tower, then turn onto Granby Street for about 350 metres.

If coffee is your thing, then try The Leicester Coffee House Company just along Granby Street.
