    Definitely the location. Just around the corner from the theatre. We wined and dined all within walking distance. The tram took us to the rest of the city. Very handy. Room was comfortable and enough space for two. Bed was Kingsize and very comfortable. A pleasant stay.

    The bathroom, especially the space around the washbowl, was extremely limited. Shower recess (grout) could do with a good scrub! The rest of the bathroom was clean.

    Fantastic location right near Chinatown. Easy check in/out. Friendly staff.

    Food on floor near lounge suite. Room looked a little shabby; needs a paint.

  • Family with children
    3.8

    Hotel rooms were in much need of urgent maintainence, pre-authorization for payment still hasn't cleared into bank account. They said it would be 24 hours, it has now been 4 days!! Would not recommend

    I liked the location

    I didnt like the reception being across the road and there weren't the facilities as advertised. I didn't appreciate that there wasn't breakfast in our building and the parking was too far away. I wouldn't stay here again

    location was good

    it strongly smelt of cigarette smoke and there was no ventilation

  • Family with children

    Good quality accomodation, excellent room service, friendly helpful staff,well located. Nice restaurants close by.

    sometimes we had difficulty with the card system that operates the lift, front door etc. Hair dryer was a bit basic.

  • Older travelers

    Nothing, poor conditions. bathrooms are extremely dirty. No toilet brush, showers has lots of grime around it. Rooms were poorly maintained.

    No compimentry parking facilities. Dirty rooms.

    value for money on NYE. nearly every other hotel had doubled their room rates.quickly changed rooms when aircondition was not working

    confusion about reservation payments.I understood the booking was fully prepaid. The hotel insisted that the booking was not prepaid.

    It was located close to the Rod Laver Arena for the Eagles concert

  • Family with children
    8.2

    It was a great family location and suited our varied needs. We were able to walk to most of the sites. A plus was the self- catering.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    location very good, the apartment itself was very comfortable and well appointed

    The fact that the apartment was supposed to be serviced and was not at all during our visit. This represented poor service and value for money - the charge included a service that was not provided.

    We loved the central location, & beautifully clean:)

  • Older travelers

    The rooms are noisy, I felt very boxed in, you forgot my wake up call. Rooms need to be up dated

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The best location for theatres, china town and bars/restaurants. Very clean and comfortable. Lifts very fast too.

    No view except a side alley way. a bit noisy at night time with the garbage trucks removing bottles from bins.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The staff and their willingness to help in any way. They were all so lovely and professional. The location! The pillows and doona!!. Great quality. BedRoom was nice and dark too even during the day and hotel was very clean!!

    Little bit smaller than what the pictures showed on the website. Windows that you can open would have been nice.
