After reading many reviews of Hotels before booking the Madera, I was happy to arrive and find a well sized room on the 12th floor with a walkin desk/wardrobe area. Unfortunately it reeked of cigarette smoke, so approached the concierge who was surprised to here this, and sent someone with a magic spray to help. It did help, but it was still noticable when re-entering the room at the end of the days travels. I found the best way to rid the room of the smell, was a kebab and it's juicy wrapper brought back to the room!
The gym was good, and the Cafe capuccino's were really nice too. The upstairs deck was ok for the light show, but only ventured up there for one night.
Staff were lovely and helpful explaining where places were on the map.
Partner found the bed a bit hard.
Hints: There's a subway just one street north of the Madera which will take pretty much to the Temple St Markets (though I think the Ladies markets are better)
Take the No.1 bus up and down Nathan Rd to the Ferry'sMore
