Located in a run down neighbourhood and more than 20 minutes way by foot from any facilities like an ATM and apart from paying for the room there is no eftpos. Originally given a run down room on the 4th floor facing a noisy train line that looked nothing like the picture advertised and we had to ask to switch to a better room. The footpaths surrounding the hotel have dog p** on them. The room had free wifi, but the blocked access to all hotel websites and hotels.com.
Does not have room service as advertised. The pool is paid access and must be booked to use. We were not told about booking until being turned away 2 nights in a row. The breakfast buffet is out all day and overnight in the restaurant downstairs. We saw boiled eggs that were black just sitting on the side table.
Our initial booking was for 3 days but we only stayed for 2. We cancelled the last night to switch hotels to the Hilton. The discounted price advertised here is the normal room price. So don't make the mistake of thinking you are getting a deal.
We booked this hotel with a certain expectation based on its advertise facilities and it failed to meet them. It is not horrible if you are looking for a budget hotel near where you need to be, however it is not 4 star. The fact the wifi blocked hotel booking websites is not a good sign of this hotels quality and we had a little trouble getting a new hotel because of this.
