As we write this report at 17:30 in the evening we could well have been situated in a kindergarten. The Reception is situated downstairs from the rooms and the staff appear to be totally unaware of the constant noise.
As previous reviewers have said, the rooms are of dark brick and the bathrooms tiny and we were only provided with one very small soap and a meagre towel per person.The room is claustraphobic..so dark..no windows..and the only light is from several ghastly energy saving bulbs ! Not a great suprise really to find that the rooms are only serviced once every two days !
The fuse box inside our room was an antiquity - dare not to pull it - but half expected to find a fuse wire inside !
The beds are so small..and we had a double..not very comfortable and the pillows overlapped the bed. Talking of small, the shower would be great if you were 1.25 metres in height
As the time approaches 18:30 the room becomes filled with the smells of the cooking from the restaurants below. In saying that, we had an absolutely fabulous meal at Nanams Kitchen to where we will return. A disturbed night after eating at the La Fiama will ensure that we don't eat there either
Do not know where we will stay when we return again, not here for sure and probably not at the Mantra which is just serviced apartments with an RSL as a restaurant complete with pokeys and all + plus some of the most indifferent food that I have had in ages.
