2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I stayed here over the xmas and new years period. I was bitterly disappointed and can assure you I will not be returning!!
Firstly, as other reviewers have previously posted, one lift is out of order (and has been for over 12 months). We were left waiting for up to 20 minutes at times to cram into the only working lift. Then this lift also broke down and we had to walk up and down to the 18th floor.
Our room was shoebox sized and very very basic. We had no cooking facilities and had to walk up and down the stairs to get plates, knifes etc from reception. These were never washed or changed the entire time we were there so we had a huge pile up of dirty and smelly plates despite usnleaving them next to the door for collection (You are unable to clean you own dishes as no facilities are provided for this).
The bathroom is very tiny and you could shower while sitting down on the toilet if you wanted to. There is a big step up into the bathroom which is dangerous and tripped us up a few times.
The bed is small and basic and the sheets were not changed or bed made the entire time we were there. The TV had very bad signal and you can hardly see the programme you are watching.
The steet noise was very loud, especially on weekends. We stayed on the 18th floor however still struggled to sleep from the pulsating noise from the night club next door. I would imagine anyone on the bottom floors would not get any sleep until atleast 4am.
Finally we were asked for a $50 bond when we arrived (which we were never told about when booking) , this has still not been refunded despite the man at the front desk telling me it was done as I checked out. Numerous phone calls to and from has still not resolved this.


On the upside location was great and the staff were very friendly and only tried to please.

Room Tip: Take very good air plugs and dont expect much!

What can I say.... if you are a backpacker looking for something a tiny bit up from a hostel for the night then come on over! Everyone else, seriously, think about getting locked up for the night, it would probably be quieter and cooler in the drunk tank! Oh and the TV's are from the early 90s and are about the size of your hand, old tube ones, with 4 fuzzy channels.

Noisy street even on the 16th floor, hard to sleep.Small room. Shower floods whole bathroom. Both lifts did not work so had to walk up to level 16 with bags. Good location. TV reception poor and expensive internet.
