The pictures of the lobby are lovely...but wait til you get in to the rooms. The first room the window didnt open and the overhead fan didnt work. So no air at all. I asked for another room on an upgrade and said I was prepared to pay for it as long as I had a better room. They gave me one but it was no better. The handbasin was IN the shower recess but at least had my own toilet. The fan though only worked when the light switch was on which wouldnt have been good for sleeping all thru the night. So I rang down to see if there was another room I could have but while I was talking to them the cord fell out from the handset so I went down in the very slow lift to the desk to talk directly to them. They gave me my third room and I kept my fingers crossed. BUT the power point was too loose to hold my cell phone charger in & it kept falling out. No chair to sit on. The fan worked but only on one speed (full on) and as the room is so small there wasnt any space to move the bed out a bit so I slept (?) with a sheet covering me to try to ease the blast of the fan. Weird cos this was the middle of summer. So in the morning I said I wasnt staying for the other 2 nights I'd paid for and asked for a refund but they said as I'd booked thru Expedia I would have to ask them. So I rang instead, the Ritz Milner, where I had stayed on another 2 visits and they luckily had a vacancy. Its not far (Sth Flower St) and I went there. But The Cecil is not a hotel..its only equivalent to a backpackers. If you want that then good but they misrepresent themselves with the pictures on their website. Its a very low class old place but if thats all your budget can cope with then stay there but be aware of the class of hotel it is! The location is OK and the area is quite good. Nothing to worry about. Just the rooms are so very different from their pictures on the website!!!!!
