Great location, But....
No choice in pillows, they were like concrete and too high. It was disappointing to have no choice of in house restaurant on Saturday night when both the bar and restaurant were closed for private functions

Great Stay
The location was great as it is a bery short distance to the train station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Short Business Trip
Stayed just before Mardi Gras. Good experience on check in. Rooms were decent size. Aircon was great although the cleaning staff put it back to a normal temperature after they clean up. Fridge is a bit small if you intend to use it for things like larger bottles of wine. Reception response is great. Price as would be expected follows the trend of how busy they are at that time and not the type of customer you potentially are. They have late check out though which was useful. Late check in which just mean coordinating my time.

Location ok, but old facilities and tiny beds
The door security lock was out of order, tiny twin beds, smelly. Poor light in the room. In a word, not cozy. Disappointing.

Sleepless Night
Good location, affordable, convenient
My initial impressions of my room were fantastic but the cracks soon began to show. The walls are very thin and let through noises such as phone calls and talking from next room, traffic from outside, and machinery from inside the walls. The air con worked so poorly that despite being set at 18 degrees C and full power my room was around 26 degrees the entire night. This heat and noise kept me from sleeping in my one night of the hotel and seriously affected my stay. Air vents in main room are dirty, room has a smell of mould which is probably due to the lack of ventilation in the bathroom. Staff were nice but overall seemed very inexperienced. One staff member knocked on my door and, before I could get out of bed, was already unlocking the door and opening it. Shocked to see me, he said he'd come back later. No idea who he was. Never staying at this hotel again. A 2-3 star experience. NOT what I was expecting.
