In the new room the kettle did not work and the TV remote was missing. I notified reception and replacements were provided. Finally, there were three tide marks in the bath. It clearly... More

It is a good size room with decent size functioning bathroom, very apt for travelers looking for resting at night after a long sight seeing time. I... More

After a late flight at 1.30am I was greeted by friendly and efficient staff at the reception desk, 5 minutes late I was in my room up on the 14th floor. The room... More

Just one comment though. The room was not thoroughly cleaned. When I first checked in, there was an opened mineral water bottle at the TV. And after the room cleaning on the 2nd day, my sink are still not properly cleaned as there are hair on them. I would expect it to be cleaned though the hair could be mine.

It's not a flash hotel, and the look is a little 80's, but the staff at reception were friendly and at the price I paid I had nothing to complain about. Currently got major construction in the street out the front of the Hotel, but my room... More
