“Alishan in Glebe, a very nice place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Nice place to stay, very near from the city, so very easy to go there. Shiban the boss is a very nice guy to meet, and will have pleasure to organize and explain all you want.
The place is very quiet and shared facilities are always cleaned.
We liked this place very much!!

Room Tip: We get a family room, room #29, enough place for everybody

My extended family was greeted by the manager in a warm and friendly manner, and he quickly established that he was there to attend to our needs promptly and without fuss - he and the night manager maintained this standard throughout our extended stay.
The location was ideal for our needs, and the whole environment (garden, entry, rooms) was adequately secured. Unfortunately the exterior exit gate was padlocked which prevented its use in an emergency.
Many cafes, restaurants, bookshops, deli's are available along Glebe Point Rd. Traffic noise was tolerable. Broadway shopping centre is within pleasant walking distance. Buses to the city pass by the door.
The price was commensurate with the quality of the accommodation.
The kitchen and dining room were very well presented except for the floor.
Our experience would have been improved if management paid some attention to a daily cleaning routine that included mopping the kitchen floor, mopping the common bathroom floors, emptying cigarette butts from the exterior receptacles and cleaning under beds after guest departure - we discovered personal items beneath one of our beds.
It would have been helpful if towel rails had been replaced in the bathrooms for our use.
Although the website advertised a BBQ for guest use, it was not clean.
We were concerned about the safety of the electrical circuitry when one of the dining room lights intermittently extinguished for a period of time before resuming function - this would then be followed by a different light extinguishing some time later.

Room Tip: Room 5 is adjacent to the common area. Room 3 has no windows. Some rooms have windows or french do...

I have stayed at Alishan numerous times over the last ten years & always found the staff helpful, the rooms & facilities basic but clean and great value for money.The location is good for access to the CBD by public transport, taxi or foot.

The room was dingy. Hallway stank of "heavily spiced" food at 7pm & it was not the best first impression. The smell hung around for 24hrs.

The manager was not professional. Hotel reciepts when staying, are a good idea & should be provided to all guests.

This review dropped further when he knocked on the room door at 10:02am, to ask if I was checking out @ 10am. Rude.To be honest it was great to exit.

The worst place I've ever stayed & I would not reccomend absolutely anyone to stay there.

We stayed here on a Saturday night, we had a night out in Glebe and Alishan was conveniently located close to where we were going out that night.
The rooms were basic but clean. As was our private bathroom. We were very happy with what we got for the price, we also parked our car in the rear yard. We think this place is clean and great value for money.
Note- our room didn't have window which we thought was odd. We didn't care as we were only there for 1 night. However, the communal facilities such as the kitchen, lounge area appeared modern and well equipped. I would still consider staying here for a longer amount of time.

Words fail me. Rude manager. Room stank of stale urine. Quite possibly the worst place I've ever stayed.
