It's a bit hard to find, but Cube Hotel is a great place to stay. It's new and has a good vibe. Rooms have a different feel to the standard boring hotel rooms. Our balcony was about 3m long and had a good view of city skyline. Balcony wide enough to stand on but you wouldn't sit out there as it's too narrow. The city is right there - 50m away and that was perfect. Only slight hassle was no parking, but you can park just around the corner at the Wesley church. $12 day or $7 a day on weekends. If you're arriving Friday for the weekend, pay by the day and you'll save a fair bit of money.
There is a mini kitchen with microwave, cooking utensils and dishwasher. There were 2 of everything in the cutlery and crockery count. There was a very amusing list of the cost to the guest of replacing any missing or broken items. Eg., one chinese porcelain spoon $10! One teaspoon $10! Bedhead $400. The shower screen was a bargain at $500. Entertainment provided by way of this list. There was a big TV with limited channels.
Supremely comfortable bed. Bathroom well sized. Why don't hotels have toilet brushes any more?
Extremely well soundproofed. Heaps of storage space in the room.
The cafe/breakfast area downstairs looked relaxing and had a good menu and good prices but we didn't try it.
Service at reception was hit and miss. Friendly and helpful but didn't know if there was a spare Nokia phone charger, didn't know where a loan umbrella might be - nothing major. We were allowed to take our bicycles up to the room to put on the veranda - the receptionist wasn't sure about this one but we were very happy about it and would return to this hotel just because they let us do that. Thanks to the nice staff member for this.
