    Walking distance from the ICC Centre. Yvone and other reception staff were friendly, so were the maintenance person and the porters. Good flat screen TV in the room.

    Dreadful and depressing place to stay: cockroaches in the bedroom and the bathroom, smelly rooms, very old hotel straight from the 60's, overwelming youth crowd near the hotel entrance in the evening because of the near bars/discos, broken glasses on the pavement in the morning, etc . . .

    The Lindt chocolate on my pillow.

    The parking is down a very scary alley - not nice to walk there at night. All other parking is on the street - bad area.

    Exceptional

    I liked the fact that it was central, close to workshop and transport services. I enjoyed the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. It was good value for money!

    At night the surrounding areas tend to get a bit rowdy -

    Location - in the city centre

    The elevators are very old. They take between 5-10 minutes to come to 7th floor. Hotel staff is very unfriendly and bothering to some unprofessionalism. I dont think I will recommend anybody to use that hotel.

    I liked the food

    The room I was given was a mess and was not done, plus the cupboards where away from the wall. The front desk seemed to not know that the room was not for use. They finally gave me another room.

    This hotel is located right in the centre of the CBD and is not a suitable place for tourists to stay.

    Very good

    The staff were very helpful and courteous and the room was clean and comfortable.

    The only point of concern was having to park in the parkade down the one way street. The street beyond the hotel was dirty and one did not feel safe when returning to the hotel late at night. There was also the smell of urine outside one of the night clubs.

    Not the best hotel I've ever been in . This experience was more like a roadside motel.

    Had to ask for things, Bathroom very crammy. Tv didnt work on few stations. Had to ask for condiments e.g. miilk, sugar for tea & coffe in room. We were 3 people, only got 2 milk each time-just enough for 1 person/cup. Had to ask for toilet paper etc...
