I'd have to agree with most of the previous reviewers regarding the great position of this hotel. It is really close to everything we wanted to see. We had a rental car and were able to park directly outside the hotel to take our bags up. We were given a card to the carpark which is under the Theatre at the end of the street. We found it easy parking (and very easy on exit) and the lift takes you all the way back up to the street just a short distance from the hotel.
We were in one of the front rooms - a theatre side room and though still tiny it was adequate for our needs. It was a bit noisy from trucks outside in the morning but we were in the centre of the city (with our windows open) so this was to be expected. I would urge the hotel management to look at replacing some of the bed linen which was rather worn and even torn in places. And those memory foam pillows!!!! I'm still not sure about those - they just felt hard to us. Other reviewers mentioned showers fluctuating between hot and cold but I didn't experience that at all during our stay although my husband mentioned it once.
Oriana and the other staff we met were extremely helpful and are, I believe, the hotel's greatest asset. They pointed out places to visit and where to eat. I was able to use one of their PCs to check-in and print boarding passes on their printer which really saved the day. It was a french keyboard but I like a challenge. I did comment to my husband that I wondered how many reception staff in Australia would willingly help like that or in fact would also serve you breakfast and wash up afterwards, all the time with a friendly word and smile. Not many I think.
Thanks to the staff for a good stay.
