I stayed here for 1 night recently. To be fair, I booked this hotel because the price looked very attractive and the offer included breakfast. In retrospect, I should have known that the $109 deal wasn't going to buy a lot. There's free parking and my bed was comfortable but the rooms are small and austere, basic bathroom with a... More

The hotel is in a good location from the city centre, it takes around 15 mins to walk. Car parking is free, but spaces are limited. The staff were mostly friendly and helpful, although one or two seemed a little stressed, one woman during the breakfast service seemed extremely flustered! The rooms were clean but basic with not much room.... More

A little disappointed with this hotel. Tiny room, only one pillow, not enough duvet and needed a lick of paint. Saying that, it was comfortable and in a good location. Breakfast was fine too. Ok if you're only staying a night or two and want to be walking distance to Cuba Street

Our package deal included free parking and breakfast each day, so this hotel was very good value for money spent. The hotel is very well kept, but the furniture is tired. The chairs in the restaurant, lounge and room need replacing. The service was excellent. Our stay was 6 nights, so we met a lot of staff. Every staff member... More

Overall I was unimpressed by the quality of this hotel. The room we were initially given was noisy due to the traffic below coming from the busy road and the bed was no where near a queen size (which is what I had booked). We were quickly given a different room on the other side of the hotel which was... More

Having made a late booking and only really needing a place to rest the head for a couple of nights, I was pleasantly surprised from the outset of my stay. For starters the price was tremendous for an inner city establishment, yes the rooms are small ... but not uncomfortable and everything worked just fine, including the free Wi-Fi. My... More
