When I arrived at this hotel, I noticed how nice the lobby was. Upon check in the guy behind the desk told me how I had got a really good deal, this made me think the rooms would be really good! However looking at the room I had been given, it looked like it could do with a good make-over!... More

Great location just around the corner from Queen Street. Short walk to Sky Tower and to eating places. We had a small room but it was cheap. You get what you pay for. Breakfast good. Service is excellent.

We stayed for a night when we came up for the mariah carey concert. Great location for price to vector arena and queen street. Very helpful and informative staff and a delicious breakfast in the morning.

Location is central, just off queens street - so that's a bonus - easy walking distance to shops, harbour and bars, not forgetting the sky tower. Staff were friendly and helpful. Onsite laundry is certainly a plus when you're travelling. We found the bed to be comfy and didn't have significant noise from the street but we were both shattered... More

The hotel is in a great location situated just off Queens Street. However the rooms are very very small with not much space to open your bag. There is a WiFi service however you just get 100mb!! I mean what century are we living in. If you switch on your computer make sure all updates are turned off as you... More

Very small rooms, no very clean, bed is well past its use by date, no aircond but the worst part was the traffic noise. The hotel is on a very busy coner with traffic lights. Every change of lights had buses or trucks accelerating up a hill and making lots of noise. The single glazed windows offered little protection from... More

First up they did give me a partial refund because I complained about so many that are wrong with the place. Room was dirty, bathroom was even worse with mould and rust over the taps and shower head. Beds, linen & towels are way beyond their use by date. Wifi is incredibly slow and poor signal. Building is in need... More

Stayed a night, to go to the Mariah Carey concert. Thought the room was very reasonably priced. It is in a really great location, with easy access to transport and shops. Double glazed windows would be helpful, and possibly a spruce up. But the wonderful, helpful, friendly staff more than made up for it. Would stay there most definitely for... More

Very small, not very clean room, smelly bedding, dirty windows. It made me regret not booking single room in some of nearby hostels - for less than half of the price. This is very little value for the money.

Stayed here a night for my partner's 21st birthday celebrations. This is definitely an old hotel with tired furniture - the small fan heater is straight out of the 80s. The room is small, and a double bed is exactly that. Most hotel's "double beds" are queen beds these days. All things considered (sub-$100 per night), it is good value... More
