This place is in dire need of a makeover. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. The carpets are old, dingy and smell. The rooms are not clean with garbage from previous guest in the room. The guy at reception has no service attributes whatsoever. The washroom was also dirty and no hot water The price is cheap...

A good hotel is never good enough but a bad hotel is a joy forever. (Our family motto.) Well, everything on this site written about musty carpets, sagging mattresses, and gloomy halls is true, except, if you love trains, the joy of this hotel is that from some rooms (not sure which, but mine) you listen to the sounds of...

We arrived early morning and were greeted by LURCH. No smile, little customer service. We were shown our room via a 100 old creepy lift which barely made it 2 floors up. Down a long decrepit coridoor into our room. It was a triple room but by no means large. The carpets were musty smelling and dirty. Chairs and table... More

Booked this from UK and had read the reviews but wasn't prepared for the reality. As we walked in the smell of decay/ rot hit us. The cafeteria next to reception was gloomy and looked grubby. We asked to have a look at the room and went up in the little lift which was quaint and worked fine. You could... More

This is the coolest hotel I've ever stayed in! A standard single was in fact a suite/2 room apartment. The building is enormous and very, very historical. Pros: Enormous room with 2(!) air conditions. No timer, so the room remained at set temp all day. Good service, good breakfast, free Wi-Fi downstairs. Excellent location and quiet at night. Had a...

Remember the hotel in the movie the Shining?..... I kept expecting to see something spooky down those long long hallways. But i digress... The Hotel...... It's a real pity as this place could be incredible,great architecture,original old lift,dark wood everywhere... If there had only been some upkeep since maybe the 1930's perhaps?!?!?!? Stained carpets,stained mattresses,no top sheet, ancient blanket etc... More

We spent 3 nights at this hotel and were not impressed. Although this hotel is set in a heritage location and close to Chinatown there are better hotels in more tourist friendly locations. The room was spacious enough but no hot water and the carpets were very dirty. The bed was clean and comfortable and the air con worked well.... More

The Heritage Station Hotel is definitely not the place you would want to stay in. Mostly because of the burglaries that have taken place there. Our friends who stayed in the next room from us got robbed - a guy broke in to their room via ceiling and stole money and a mobile phone. Later they learned from the police... More
