The hotel looks great. Checking in caused problems, as there were some computer issues. I got a room, however when I opened the door the room was already occupied (OEPS!!!!). The computer was blaimed. The second room (317) was large and had good beds (Queens) (I slept well). There is no safe or refrigerater in de room(!!!). The internet is to be paid for ($9.00 a day). When you have more devices (phone, laptop, tablet) you have to pay for each seperately. I made a complain, which resulted in a single payment when I would leave my name and address (so I did!). My reservation included breakfast (scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, toast and some cornflakes). Initially I booked directly at the hotel. I found out that it would be much cheaper doing so through a booking site (Expedia). It saved me 50%(!!!).
The service at the bar was (very) slow. The bar itself looked nice.
The reason I stayed in this hotel was, that all other hotel were fully booked. This hotel still had rooms available. I normally stay at Monaco (Kingstreet).
It is about 15 minutes walking to downtown (King Street). The walk along the Patomic is nice.
Parking is not included ($20,00)
