    Price, location and comfort room

    This hotel is located not quite far from city center which is only 5 minute walk. There are lots of cafes and restaurants nearby but it doesn't mean it is noisy, in fact it is a quite hotel. The hotel reception staffs are very friendly and helpful. The room is comfort, quite spacious and very clean. While for the price, it is unbeatable for what you will get. Happy staying!

    Great Location, Away from the noise, comfortable

    It was an overnight stay before I join the tour away from the city so I need to catch up on sleep. Glad I chose this hotel, I have a good rest without disruption from pubs noise. The location is good enough to walk around and find food too.. On the downside would be the room is smaller than I would have like for the price I pay for it.

    beautiful hotel”

    location, size and cleanliness of the room and the food in the hotel bar was amazing.

    We were very surprised at the great location and style of the hotel. Beautiful decor and very pleasant staff. We got to our room and it was huge. Very clean with a big modern bathroom. As well as your tea and coffee and decent biscuits, we got complementary water and mint sweets. My only issue with the room and it wasn't a huge issue was we were right beside the elevator and could hear it at night but it wasn't overly loud. I would prefer a softer bed but that's not an issue really. It was big and spacious and comfortable enough. I'd definitely recommend this hotel and I'll definitely stay here again.

    Coffee and sugar inadequate but totally fine if you're a tea drinker. But this is the only negative. It's a friendly hotel. I git a great rate for a big room. It was totally quiet (even with window open) yet it's in the heart of the city centre. Reception staff are soooo lovely too.

    New Employees Alone at The Desk”

    We felt horrible for two employees at this hotel, one who checked us in, and another who addressed a problem in our room. They both admitted working there for less than one week, yet were left by themselves. Both had to leave the front desk to address problems with housekeeping, presumably by new employees given the errors. My question: What responsible manager/owner does that to new employees? We were kind to them because they were truly sincere in their efforts to solve the problems. What a shame, because otherwise, the hotel was actually quite nice.

    Nice clean rooms, great location”

    We stayed here for one night so we could be close to the early morning pickup location of our day tour. Our room was clean and comfortable. The only criticism I have is that we booked a triple room and indicated there would be 3 people staying, but we were given only one bath towel. Other than this small oversight, we enjoyed our stay.

    Staff were friendly and helpful.. But the hotel appeared tired and in need of a renovation...we would not have paid over $300 a night for a hotel like this. Rooms were not cleaned well and beds were not made properly... Bear in mind there is no air conditioning if you're staying here in summer. Lastly, there is a lot of noise from pub crowd and road..
