“Poor review - Building site/ no Pool/ no Gym/ no Sauna - not helpful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

9 October 2012 Entrance impression, good, however receptionists all act like automatons, no personality whatsoever. Road works immediatley outside the hotel (should be finished now). Arrived at room 518 after a trek through a buiding site which was full on with jack hammers. The room was compact... no room to find a place for the second suitcase!!!!! The shower room smelt of raw sewage, it seems we were not the only ones with a smell problem. The 8am garbage truck was a 7 day regular and building works the same. On the plus the rooms were serviced well and cleaners friendly. Inernet $5/hour minimum booked to your room. Suitcase storage $5/locker, it costs $10 if you have a slightly larger case because it won't fit two. No warning of building works and lack of promised facilities for internet booking or fee reduction. Like others we wouldn't have booked here had we known and for the record these works will go on to January. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Try another hotel.

You can't go wrong staying in the city and it helps that the hotel has a huge signboard so we could easily spot it from a distance away. Do stayed in the heritage rooms, which are renovated. The only down side is it is quite a walk from the operating lift. This is a no-frills room for sure but it has everything you need for a good night rest. The free city tram and the free city bus are a few streets away.

Do note that there is no free wifi in the room and in the hotel building! The only internet access is in the business room, where you pay for internet services.

Also, try to opt for a room that is far away from the lift for those that are light sleepers. The walls can be pretty thin.

Very disappointed with the following:
1. Pool was out of service;
2. gym was out of service;
3. Corridors to rooms looked like a building site;
4. Some construction noise from outside and/or garbage truck noise early in the morning disrupted sleep.

Tagging in the lift.. walk out lift onto 4th floor and they are renovating so theres dust and jib board everywhere.. open room and it literally stinks (405) mustnt have been used in a long time as it was so musty.. despite opening windows and having air con on non stop smell didnt go away... fridge was warm not cold.. noisy... breakfast dodgy... chef got locked out of the kitchen when the door fell off the hinge.... ive stayed before but this trip has put me off. I said at reception and on booking form i was pregnant so needed to be close to lifts.. high floor etc as my morning sickness is bad... all points ignored.. musty room made it so much worse

Stayed hear on 2/3 october 2012 great hotel and cheap for the location and wot you got for the price, only $135 a night with a full breakfest for 2 people in the resturant. Staff were very friendly and the room was clean and tidy with a comfortable bed. Will stay again.
