Basic hotel good for very short stopovers, not recommended for more than 2 days
The good: Excellent location, in the middle of the CBD, easy to get around, many good options around, with many highly recommended restaurants along the same street. The studio I stayed in had a well equipped kitchenette complete with stove, pots and pans, knives, and rock and wine glasses. The housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful (a lot nicer than the reception staff). The bad: Very thin walls and floors, I could hear my adjacent neighbours coming and going, and my upstairs neighbours walking around their room in shoes. I could also hear the activities in the alley next to the hotel. My experience: The reception staff are not the most friendly or helpful, depending on who you encounter. There was a female counter staff whom I approached to help call and confirm my airport transfer, which she gladly helped. Then on my last day I had realised I acceidently left 3 pieces of premium cheese in the fridge an hour after checking out, I called up the hotel knowing they usually clean the rooms only 1-2 hours after guests check out, but the male reception staff said food items are usually all thrown out, I asked if he could check with housekeeping and he said ok. A while later I went back to pick up my luggage and the same reception staff who answered my call repeated that all good items are usually thrown out. I asked if I could speak to the housekeeping staff, he replied I could if I liked. The housekeeping staff on my floor were very friendly and a male staff asked if my food items were sealed and I would like to look through the trash. He immediately led me to the trash that was gathered from my floor, where I recognized a bag from my room and found my cheeses. When my pick up seem to be running late, and my group approached the reception, the older male reception staff who just started his shift immediately declared that he was not the on who made the booking so he doesn't know anything. It was the same housekeeping staff who helped me out that assured

Credit Card
I am extremely upset with the behavior of the receptin staff by making a photocopy of my Credit Card without my permission, she explained that she require a copy as deposit, I told her this is personal information and request for the copy back, she REFUSED with an excuse that the paper also got peraonal information! !! WHAT A DOUBLE STANDARD.

Great location
Need to improve air quality. Was arranged a room near to exhaust from neighbouring kitchen. However, staff helped to change to another room after many times feedback. Was there 7days.

Great Location & friendly staff
After a red eye flight from Perth and only an hour of sleep we were allowed to check in at 7am at no extra cost! So thankful for the staff to allow such an early check in. Great Location, close to anything you need. Second time staying at City Garden and will continue to do so. Rooms could do with a paint, but who cares when everything else is fantastic.

I would never stay here again!
The hotel is in desperate need of some TLC - the walls were badly scuffed, the hallway needs a paint job and the carpet is in pretty bad condition. The air con unit in our hotel room wasn't working so I asked for a heater or extra blankets so we wouldn't freeze overnight. We were told there were no heaters and we eventually got some blankets after the staff member disappeared for almost an hour - I thought a 3.5 star hotel was supposed to have spare blankets in the rooms! I was told the air con unit would be fixed the next day but wasn't. The TV screen was smaller than my computer screen and only had 5 channels! Considering we paid almost $200 per night for the room, it just wasn't good enough!
