Centrally located hotel. Rooms are spacious, well appointed and very clean. Good breakfast. Pity about the front desk staff. When we arrived by taxi - 3 females, 2 of whom are elderly - the concierge watched as we struggled into the hotel with our cases. After checking in, no offer to take them upstairs for us. My room on the... More

Amora is a great hotel for business travellers and also families! I stayed over two nights, rooms are clean, modern, and very spacious. Service is fantastic. The breakfast is great. They charge for wifi, but allow free half an hour of Wi-fi access free.

Nice modern hotel, views towards the harbour. Only stayed a couple of nights but thought charging $26 for wifi is a bit steep. Breakfast was the only meal I had and was very good. Staff very helpful, reception staff were happy to print off my boarding pass for me.

The room I had was very nice, bed very comfortable and spacious. Service was excellent both at reception, restaurant and room service. The only downside if you could call it that was the bathroom.
