Great location for getting around the city. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and having the laundry was a bonus although it was in the annexe as the one in the hotel was under repair. Decor was needing some attention and the restaurant has a limited menu. We would stay there the next time.

We stayed here for 3 nights. We were put in the annexe part of the hotel which was in the next road. There was a 24 hour restaurant within the annexe and a vending machine. The room was spacious, comfortable, but basic and complimentary wifi was available. There were washing and drying facilities available for $2 per machine which was... More

Great location, very central for all attractions. Hotel very busy seems to be a base for a couple of night stays tourists. Some staff seem to lack comprehension of English, polite but not over friendly. Overall hotel is good value for money. Pool and fitness centre not big but very pleasant to relax in. Room maids very efficient and friendly.... More

Very close to Fisherman's Wharf and convenient in terms of restaurants, local shops etc. We checked in at the main reception but where then handed keys to a separate building in the next road. Comfortable but decor needs upgrading. Limited parking if you have a hire car. So good location and adequate hotel reflective of price.

We stayed at the Beach Road part of the hotel as it had a Virgin office and as we were booked with Virgin presumably that is where you stay. The Columbus Road section of the hotel is a lot grander and has more facilities. Having checked in in Columbus Road and then being told to walk to another location was... More

very easy to find from being dropped off at Pier 39...lots of facilities available at the hotel....close to all the attractions...we found it difficult to cope with the vast number of homeless people around..we used the "gym" and the "pool" but be aware they are limited!

This hotel had a great location, located near fishermans wharf. The rooms are a little dated but location and price makes up for it. I would stay at this hotel again due to the proximity of local attractions. This hotel is two separate buildings and requires a short walk across a busy street.
