Convenient CBD city shopping stay
Posted Jun 26, 2016
Very handy for CBD shopping stay for with friends. The hotel is in the middle of the main shopping area. No restaurant or room service (I didn't realise), so I had to leave the hotel at night, in the dark, to find dinner. The hotel is up an alley way located in a dark street at night. So, recommend to plan for that if you are staying on your own. Also, expect to get interrupted sleep. Even four floors up, with the old, single-glazed windows, the loud drinkers and cars (from the local bars) were disturbing. The room wasn't super clean; but it had everything you need and the bed was very comfortable with crisp clean sheets. The air conditioning/heating was quiet and heated the room really well (cold weather). There were four very nice magazines to read, which was a bonus. When I booked online, a dominant feature was 'free wifi'. When I queried the front desk person about connectivity, she asked me if I had in fact read the fine print, as it was only two hours free wifi. I did get an extended checkout, which was lovely. And, the front desk person on checking out was really friendly and helpful. He stored my bags, advised on a good time to leave for the airport, and arranged a taxi which picked me up exactly on time.
