We stayed two nights in the hotel on transfer from Europe to the Pacific. The hotel is only 400 meter walk from Airtrain at Roma Street Station. Helpful and friendly reception. Rooms rather small and dark, but clean and have what you need for a short stay. Lot of shops, restaurants etc near by. The hotel has a small restaurant... More

Had to move our reservation but a quick call and all was re-arranged... More

The location was great and convenient but the rest about the hotel was just ordinary. Room was so tiny, staff were unfriendly, bed was too small, you can hear the people talking next door, airconditioning doesn't work properly and sounds like a refrigerator truck, no wifi as we didn't book the room reservation directly with them. Have to ring the... More

Very central with very helpful staff, tiny rooms, not nearly enough hot water for three people to take a shower, no power point in the bathroom, no lid on the toilet, and black mould around the base of the shower.
