    location

    Not all floors are refurbished. My room was on the second floor which is very run down and smelly.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The staff was very friendly and the room very clean.

    The concierge forgot some of my things when I came back to pick up my luggage. I had ust gotten married and didn't realise until later I was missing a bag... The price for the room was ok considering the location but if you're on any of the first 4 floors, you don't get any view and might even be able to look into the building next door :-/

    Great

    Great location, handy to transport options, easy access to tourist attractions, shopping, cafes. Good facilities in the hotel, staff very helpful and friendly. Food options for in-room dining were good, plus two restaurants in the hotel. The room was comfortable, quite spacious, pillow menu to choose from.

    Bathroom a little tired and the step into the shower/bath would be challenging for older or less able people.

    The family room type is suitable for family with 2 young children. The manager was very nice during our arrival.

    The staff receptionist was not friendly and like doesn't care at all when we checked out, not even a smile. Just say, "oh..you can go". Not even look at guest.

    Nice

    Good location.

    We booked what was called a Quuen room. We don't believe it was a queen size bed. More likely a double. The bed was really uncomfortable.

    Comfortable beds, central location

    The concierge staff when called to ask about parking was indirectly answering questions and not making sense - was a bit frustrating

    Location, close to Chinatown and the demolished entertainment center :-) Actually, I found that fascinating which is why I have included a photo of it - many a night spent in those seats soon to be history. Staff are very pleasant.

    Aged property, smallish rooms, 1960's , expensive for the quality of accommodation, parking down the street (thanks very much) and you can't get out on a Sunday - well, you can, but after two calls to security and a 30 minute wait. Chintzy with the tea/coffee for the caffeine addicted - two (el cheapo) coffee sachets, two EB tea bags - 'cmon! No milk refresh (or maybe they just forgot).

    Staff really good. Position awesome.

    They need to spend money on upgrading bathrooms. Shower hopeless, Toilet seat old & flush no good. Needs a mirror above coffee area.

    Very good

    Stopped here for our Golden Wedding Anniversary. We had a 'Superior King ' room, large comfortable bed, very clean, lots of tea and coffee and real milk available. A bit pricey, but the hotel's position was good.

    The JBs bar' had all the vibes of a mortuary,
