Very average rooms, service not bad, "free internet is for 15mins only"

For the price, the room is VERY VERY ordinary and small. The balcony was just under 1m^2. Approx 1/3 of it was taken up by the A/C unit. The staff were professional and friendly, no faults there. The "free internet" is practically a lie. You get 15mins of capped (256kbps), after which you need to pay for hr (still capped) There are no spare powerpoints, room service will bring you a power board to use. Final verdict, I will not go come back again.

Don't bother

Not worth it. Mould in bathroom. Rooms ordinary and run down. Stayed in a twin room and room so small you had to squeeze around one of the beds to get into the bathroom. When checking out another guest was also complaining about the mould in his bathroom. Won't be staying there again.

Handy Location

Stayed there for 3 nights, this hotel has a good location, close to Chinatown and the Theatre's. The rooms are average and the Staff are good. I wouldn't recommend having breakfast here, it is not very appealing and if not included in your room quite expensive at $21 each. Nearby cafes are much better.
