Lovely hotel in a minimalist style, rather than "basic". Open plan reception area, with incredibly friendly and lovely reception staff, who make you feel extremely welcome from the outset, which is always a good start. Rooms are situated in two sections/blocks - main section and a tower. I was in the main section. Room functional, with pull out TV for any-angle viewing. Wifi is not free but is very fast with good connection in the room. Bathroom very nicely decorated and laid out; my room was a shower-only type with large downpour type shower, very nice. Bed firm but cosy. Room not overly large but enough for a short stay. You can slightly open a window for outside air if you wish. High standard bathroom products with their famous "leaf" soap! Cooler cupboard (as opposed to a noisy refrigerator) and a couple of complimentary water bottles. Earplugs provided but i didnt find outside noise too excessive. The gym was at the top of the Tower part of the building. There is a small pool and sauna. The gym was not large but perfectly adequate for guest usage with the usual equipment. Free earbuds provided and nice views over the city as you work out! You can hire gym clothes for around $5, maybe a little more, which is quite a novel idea. As everyone else has mentioned, there is a handy Starbucks in the hotel lobby, as well as the hotel's own restaurants and a bar off the lobby area. Not a "romantic" hotel - it's too efficient for that - but a very well-run and comfortable hotel. Absolutely superb, highly trained staff which gives a great impression overall of this brand.
Probably ask where the building work is currently going on, to avoid rooms nearby. Also, rooms near...
