On a recent business trip recently I had stayed at this hotel. The hotel is in an excellent location just opposite the Flinders station and has lot of restaurants and shops around. This is the only plus point of this hotel.
The hotel front façade was getting renovated so the entrance was basically a small door through the construction material. Pretty depressing feel. Once inside the reception was looking more like a bar and the hotel staff told me this is the theme. Anyway.. the reception is too small and crowded. Hotel check-in was no problem and I was given a complementary upgrade . The rooms are quite small and are noisy as the windows are not sealed properly. The furniture is modest and very sparse. The roof is quite low so you get the feeling of crampness in the room. Room amenities are kept to the bare minimum.
The buffet breakfast is complementary but again the quality is not good. The choices are limited and are repeated everyday. The staff is very limited and everything about the hotel gives a feeling of economy class. I have stayed in similar properties of Hilton but this one was very disappointing.
Given a choice I would not stay there again..
