We arrived at the Gemini in a big group. The check in was handled well despite an overflow of luggage in the lobby. The room was a good size with a sliding door and balcony overlooking the main street. It had one queen size bed and one single. Very different mattresses, one extremely soft with a well worn dint in the middle and the other a little harder. Good enough in our opinion. The bathroom was a good size and clean. The shower had continuous hot water with lovely firm pressure. There was a faint smell of cigarette smoke in the room. We had not been responsible for the bookings, so it was likely not a non-smoking room. Again not deterred by this. Griffith is really a beautiful place and we enjoyed the area immensely. However, night time was a bit of a shock. The Gemini accommodation is situated right on top of a night club. We were there on Saturday night. Going to sleep was not an issue; there was the throbbing of the music but it was even enough to drift off. But from about 2am, the nightclub and the pub across the street started winding down and the patrons spilled out onto the street to continue their partying. Well, it seems Griffith know how to party hard and loud. Each time the doors opened to let someone out of the club, the volume of the music would grow -boom, boom boom, followed by yahooing, yelling and finally loud car engine noises. It was a full hour before things settled down at 3am. There was nothing untoward, but that was probably thanks to the police car(s) surveying the area between the two establishments, which suggested to me this was a regular Saturday night scene. Breakfast was the standard continental buffet cuisine. Nothing flash but adequate. The staff were pleasant but I'd chose to stay elsewhere next time because of the noise.
