Wonderful staff, super helpful but could not make up for the foul stench that was in the foyer and was even worse on our floor and filled our apartment on level 3. The windows do not open so there was no way to get fresh air. It was so bad we could not sleep, we ended up blowing the air... More

We stayed in a studio apartment which had a cosy living area and well-equipped kitchen. The beds were very comfy. Everything was clean. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. The apartments are in a fantastic part of the city. I would definitely stay here again. My only gripe is there's no free wifi.

This hotel is very close to everything. We only stayed the one night but it was good to be able to walk out the door and be in the heart of everything. It is old, has a slight older odour about it (not a bad odour) and very creaky floors. The room was spacious and well appointed but that floor... More

The first rule of real estate - location, location, location. This hotel delivers! If you are looking for 5 stars - go elsewhere. If you are not prepared to accept that an older, heritage listed building means limitations - go elsewhere. If you want to pay $ and get $$$$$ then go elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a...

We were slightly apprehensive about staying here given some of the negative reviews on here, but we were pleasantly surprised! Excellent location, good sized and clean apartments, and great customer service. Yes there is some scaffolding up and building work going on, but that didn't affect our stay. We couldn't hear any outside noise from our room at all, and... More

We stayed for three nights in January. It is very central and close to lots of places to eat. We enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very spacious. There is building work on going, however we did not hear any noise during our stay.

This is an example of "you get what you pay for". We booked and paid in full for this location on Trivago about 6 months before we checked in. It seemed an excellent deal and we were very excited to arrive, so much so that an additional three families came to stay on our recommendation at the same time. Firstly,... More
