The location is excellent - but there are a number of other hotels equally convenient any of which is likely to prove preferable. Poorly maintained generally - everything a bit "tired". Housekeeping service farcical to say the least - requests for rectification (just one example - a hand towel each - not too demanding surely?) met with apologies and promises but no activity. Plumbing problems in the bathroom (water coming up through the floor; blocked handbasin; unpleasant odours) fared slightly better but remained unresolved. Obviously the breakfast menu has changed since other reviewers stayed there - limited choice and of pretty average quality. The "Hotel Ambassador" (?senior concierge) tried hard to be helpful but was let down by poor backup and indifferent staff. The internet access is ridiculously expensive - rather piggyback on the wifi of the Accor Hotel (next door) and pay by credit card. We checked out a day early. [For 5* dining try either Cos in Leigh Street or Jolley's Boathouse on the river bank - for cheaper eats it's not necessary to go further than Rundle Street where there's a good variety of eateries, Greek, Italian, modern Aus, etc: all within a short walk].
