This central-downtown hotel was a perfect location for our vacation trip. We literally walked everywhere. The lift down to Lambdon Quay was a step-saver in this very hilly city. Rooms perhaps on the small side, though that may be because there were three adults in one room (two double beds). Beds were comfortable, housekeeping was generous with towels. Business center was usually available, tho with the irritating fee now charged at many establishments.
We booked the hotel via Expedia for $100 a night, which was a bargain for our 8-night stay.
We did NOT try the restaurants, mostly because there were so many excellent dining options from the waterfront to Cuba Street.
We would definitely recommend this hotel.
