We had to change rooms because the air conditioning was asthmatic, only to be put into a room with the cooling credentials of a dash-mounted fan. A propos decor to go with the obligatory Claude Challe muzak. The location was not great, mostly because to get a day-ticket on the trams is too complicated and expensive, and it was too far to walk anywhere interesting. We tried the Italian restaurant only to find the food quite bland but then this was a theme on our trip around Oz.
Finally, I was surprised that the wifi was not free, a small and inexpensive touch that would go a long way.
