First impressions were poor, we had to wait while the staff at front counter argued about something before we could book in. We were then locked in the main entrance while they reviewed our passports - a little disconcerting. The room was disappointing, you can't actually sit on the toilet! They've said the bathroom is small but you need to be a child under 5yrs to have a chance. The photo shows a double/queen bed but they are two singles with one sheet and blanket. The linen was dirty and the bed cover was hopefully just old but it seriously needs replacing. The mini bar consists of a fridge and a bottle of water! In what country does that rate as a mini bar? The free WiFi takes 30mins to get in as the connection is poor. Don't be fooled by the photos they are the best aspects of some of the rooms but they aren't what you get. We've travelled from England to France, Germany, Switzerland to here and this is the poorest first impression we've had yet, so much so I'm writing this so no one else finds themselves disappointed like we are. We can't comment on the breakfast as we haven't made it that far yet, but our expectations have been set so low that it has to meet them. But, the location is great! Its close to everything. The location may be great but in walking the streets you see many other opportunities we wished we'd taken. Take the time to look else where, only suitable as a last resort. Happy holidaying! P&S from Sydney.
