Overrated Historical Hotel
The hotel location is very strategic as it is surrounded by most of the tourist attractions sites like the shopping mall, Opera House, many souvenir shops and etc. As this is a well-established hotel, we do have some expectation for the hotel. Firstly, the room that we were given was a twin bed room even though we did not ask for it. We requested a change for a double bed at the concierge but the intelligent lady on duty was quick to inform us that there was no availability by just scanning through the papers. I didn't know they are trained to scan papers so FAST! (and I don't think that scanning actually gets any information on the availability) It was a huge disappointment as there were no proper checks done on the availability and we were rejected straight away. Though she was quick to offer to switch room the next day, we felt it was a trouble to check out and check in again. So we decided to stay in the same room. While we were in the room, we felt there were mosquito or bugs bite. I certainly do not think bug or mosquito bites is part of the package from your hotel. As it was only 2 days, so we opt just to bear with it and we are out most of the time, it won't be much of a problem because we brought along insect repellent. Later in the evening, when we came back to rest, there was a party or event going on at the ground floor. We could hear the loud music very clearly and was sure that it would not last until midnight so it didn't bother us too much too. Curious about the music that they were playing, so we open the back door to see what sort of event it was and noticed there was stagnant water released from the air condition. I looked out to my neighbour's balcony and it is the same, stagnant water there too! NOT sure if this is the breeding ground of the bugs and mosquitos! Besides, the loud music from the ground floor (events), we can also hear great loud music from the Opera House (which is just opposite the hotel), and also TV noises fr

One of the best
It was my second time staying at Continental. I love this hotel so much. My room was spacious, clean and quite. The Opera's view was amazing. I got upgrade to a suite for my first time staying there. Breakfast should be a little bit better.

Wonderful glimpse of history
We stayed at the hotel for 3 days and 2 nights for leisure. At first they couldn't give us what we requested, but instead they upgrade us to an even better room/suite for free after we made another request. Everything about the hotel was excellent - location, architecture, facilities and staff. Breakfast in the courtyard was lovely. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends.

charming old style luxury stay
I loved it here. My room was huge and everything was in good working order. Staff are friendly. I would stay here again. Also for the price I paid it was very good value for money. Close to everything all walking distance. Hotel seems to be in a more affluent shopping area, surrounded by Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel etc.
