generally good

the hotel is old with not very broad space, and the bath room feels not very comfortable. but all the others are very good.

Great Staff, Average Hotel

The staff were very nice and hospitable, letting us fill our water bottles every morning from the bar (helpful since water costs an armload and there are 3 fountains in the entire city). The room is small, with an uncomfortable bed and the scratchiest blanket ever. Shower leaked into the main room. Half the tv channels were snow. I remembered that internet was included but then the booklet said $10 a day but then the staff gave it to us for free, so who knows. Great location, a block away from Hyde Park and 15 min walk to the Opera House. If the hotel is just where you sleep and not a big focus of your vacation, I'd recommend. If you want to come back and relax and stay in a day or so, not for you.

Fabulous Location

Loved the staff and the location. Room was small but clean, and breakfast was great. Little concerned about the peeling paint and black stuff on the ceiling in the lobby, but everyone was very friendly and professional! And so easy to walk to everything!!

A Hidden Gem

Pleasant experience! Location was excellent -- very convenient to trains, buses and lots of shopping. Rooms were clean. Having a refrigerator a real benefit. Only negative was dim light bulbs. Need more lamps also.

Not even one star

This was the worst 4-star hotel I have ever stayed at anywhere. The public rooms were nicely redecorated, but our room was hot. with only 2 small windows that were "blind: and could not be opened. One wall was badlly in need of repainting. There was a hole where the bathroom door handle was torn out, the closed window in the bathroom was in a rusted frame. On the floor was a previous guest's car reservation. We couldn't wait to get out of there!

Great for single traveller

Quaint boutique hotel. My second stay. So close to everything. Great transportation. A few minutes walk from Hyde Park and Queen Victoria Building (QVB) and excellent shopping and even the Apple store and Woolworth's for groceries. Staff friendly and helpful especially re local transportation and tours. Early check - in was available to me on both my stays. Good breakfast buffet in hotel for hot and cold food $15 with prepaid vouchers bought at reception. Feeling of security in hotel as you must insert your room key in elevator panel in order to access your floor. Free washer and dryer on most floors for guest use.
