I lived in PP for over 15 years, but don't now. So this is the first time I have stayed in a hotel there since 1996. As I was out and about most of the time, I just wanted somewhere cheap and central. The Amari was it.
I left my valuables in the safety deposit downstairs, and had no problems. There is an ANZ ATM in front, so cash was easy to get. Plenty of tuk tuks as well.
They did cheat me, as is expected. My friend booked the room at $20, but when I checked out they insisted it was $25 - I told the friend, who said he'd attempt to get it back. Good luck.
It's not the Ritz, but ok for a single guy.
