We changed to the Rex due to quality ratings and we were not disappointed. We arrived after a big day if travel and the service was exceptional from the front door to reception, every staff member smiled and said hello, a smile goes a long way when there is a language barrier. The room was a little smaller then expected but suited us just fine. It was clean the air con was turned on and as we were unsure of the city we headed to the roof top bar and we were not disappointed , you do pay around $7 for a beer but the atmosphere was great, it was earth hour when we arrived and they lots happening, it was fun to see. Breakfast was excellent and the service wonderful. We were close to everything the BBQ place down the road was fantastic a 2 course meal and 2 jugs of beer less then $30 us. We spent a lot if time at another place called the blue cafe beers less then $1. Overall the Rex was a great place to stay, would highly recommend.
