I had booked a Studio Harbour View room on Hotels.com and we followed the directions to Harbour lights, but the check-in desk at the Harbour lights complex is not for the luxury apartments, so we had to walk out again and check-in with the agent across the road, while the room was back inside the Harbour lights complex. That is fine, however, I wish there was better instructions on the booking.
The studio itself was nicely decorated and the room was clean. I loved the view of the Harbour which was very nice. The location is perfect, you are also very close to many bars and restaurants. After our stay we were catching a cruise and it was walking distance to the wharf for boarding our ship.
However, in our room, the air-con made a horrendous noise, you couldn't have it on while sleeping, it was just too noisy. We were staying only for a couple of nights and the weather was not too hot so it was OK to switch if off but at the height of summer this would be a problem.
Overall it was just OK, it was a pretty standard room and OK for the couple of nights I would give it 3.5 stars.
