The Amora is situated in a really convenient location, around the corner from the main roads of Queen Street and K Road, and a ten minute walk to the harbour. The reception was well presented, with comfortable furniture to relax in while waiting downstairs, along with a very nice restaurant and bar overlooking Myers Park. We weren't very impressed by the service at the reception, which was friendly enough but often inefficient, but the service of everyone else working there was fantastic. They couldn't have been more helpful, warm, and friendly. The restaurant prices ranged from fair to slightly pricey, but the food was always beautifully presented and of a very good standard. They also do weekday lunch specials, which is good if you plan on staying there for a while and don't feel like going into the city to eat.
Our room was on the third level, and was spacious, with a balcony overlooking Greys Avenue. The room had all the facilities we needed for a week's long stay, with a great kitchenette, if you want to cook for yourself. There is a bit of noise from the road, but at night everything is quiet and we never had a problem. As others have said, the air conditioning unit does look old and happened to stop working while we were there. But we notified the reception and they had it fixed while we were out. The internet rates are also very pricey, especially if you plan on being there for more than a few days. Otherwise, we were really comfortable in the room and didn't feel we needed anything else.
Other facilities include newspaper delivery each morning, at your request, and there is a small gym if you need to blow off some steam. It's a small range of equipment, but has the most popular: treadmill, spinning bike, weights. Towels and water are also provided, which was nice, and the gym overlooks the park, which makes running on the treadmill a lot better!
I would really recommend staying here. Overall, I was very pleased with the service and don't think you could get a better location, unless you're willing to pay for the price of being right next to the harbour.
