We stayed for 8 nights - 3 of us in a room which has two double beds. The room was tight on space and considering the room was meant to saccomodate 4 people there is only just enough storage space for two.
Originally we were put into a dark dingy stale smelling room and complained as the drains stank awful. They sent up a cleaner to pour bleach down the drains but it didn't really do the trick so thankfully they let us move to another room the following day which was better. They do not give many toiletries which us a disappointment considering it's classed as a 4 star hotel.
The hotel is right by railway square and central station where you can get trains or buses to pretty much anywhere. The edge of China town reaches the hotel so expect to see lots of foreign students and Chinese restaurants locally. The walk to the harbour is a good 45 mins but there are one th if buses that run down George street which will take you to central quay (stop for the harbour)
The hotel has a swimming pool on the top floor but be prepared for a walk upstairs as the lift doesn't go all the way to the top.
Breakfast was ridiculously expensive and poor quality so unless you've booked a B&B package is recommend eating elsewhere.
