My family stayed in a Harbour View 2 bedroom apartment (36C) on 7 & 8 April 2013. This hotel was even proposed by the travel agent as a 4.5 star apartment with views. It is nothing more than a 3 star hotel in a seedy area of the city. It is directly across the road from 2 strip bars and in a street that was not safe to walk in at night. The lobby is small and has an old computer for supposed internet access. The parking is tiny and I was only informed on check in that it's an extra $20/day. The staff was very unhelpful and were not even willing to accept my HSBC Visa debit card. The rooms themselves are ok, but the access to your room is terrible. We were on the 36th floor and the lifts took ages! The balcony is not a "balcony" but a step out onto a small landing. The harbour views were good but it was very noisy at night due to the bars and strip joints just under the hotel. For a 4.5 star property I would expect so much better. My advice is DO NOT STAY HERE! This was the worst hotel experience I have ever had and I have been in many hotels. We wish others not to go through the same bad experience!!
