Stayed 4 nights last month in this property. Friendly front office staff. As we alighted the taxi, the staff came out to welcome us and assist with the luggage. Since we were early, rooms were not ready. However, by the time when we returned after a coffee across the street, they made one out of two rooms ready. Tram stops and bus stops are just few minutes across the road. Being in china town area, there were plenty of restaurant, mainly asian origin, around for dine and drink.
Rooms are pretty clean but not big in size as per Australian standard. May be big enough for European standards. Bathrooms were neat. Clean linen and towels were provided. Hot and cold water with full pressure gives you relaxing bath. Best of all is free wifi and internet connection throughout the stay without much hick ups.
Breakfast was very basic. So we had breakfast from hotel only first day. They have a small bar above the restaurant but service there was pathetic. The gentle man was not welcoming and looked very new and totally unfamiliar with his work. Though hotel is in prime location, it’s not in the main road. So on a rainy day we waited more than 45 minutes for a taxi but didn’t get one and had to walk to the main road which is not very enjoyable when in formal dress for business meetings. Though hotel reception tried to book taxi but no taxis were available to come to the hotel.
Over all I would give three star for this property and would recommend this property for the price paid.
