I wanted to stay in the middle of town for a change, but should have stopped to consider that this hotel is surrounded by clubs - one in the basement and one next door. The continual boom of music was extremely annoying. Not to mention the fact it is also in need of sound proofing - you can hear your neighbours walk across their floors. There was a room party next door to me which eventually stopped at 3 am. My problem is with the the way the staff handled it - or in this case - didn't.
I also expect 5 star hotels to be immaculate and this hotel is not. I would say it's a good 4*. It desperately needs some love and attention as it's a bit tired ie scratched paintwork in the halls; chewing gum in the carpet in the lift; ripped carpeting; a leaky shower and no door on the toilet - not terribly pleasant when someone does something smelly.
Having said all that I stayed in Sydney (a suite) and the room is spacious and comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful - even with the leaky shower.More
