Fair 4.0
Really bad service
The hotel, itself, is ok, but the service is poor. They did not make up my room at all. This hotel is clearly not a 4 star hotel.

The only problem we had was waiting for someone to show up at the reception desk. We had to go to the bar and find the young lady to help us check in, but she was great and the room was clean and comfortable.

Poor 2.0
Tiny budget hotel with windows that don't close, thin, thin walls and random strange banging noises that go on all night in the ally (where our window was facing).

Great location, Great Price, but understaffed
First off, I should explain that this hotel is very much in transition. I think it will be much nicer once remodeling is complete; however, in order to make it work they need to invest a bit more in another staff member. As a context, let me explain that I love a reasonably priced hotel in the CBD and don't mind a few sacrifices. I had a quite mixed experience. It started off very poorly. I had reserved a basic room with private bath, but was told when I arrived that there was some problem with my room, so I had to use a room with shared bath. That experience was awful. The room stank of smoke and only one bathroom was working on the entire floor. To make up for that, the front desk upgraded my room for the remaining nights and offered complimentary breakfast. The staff was quite apologetic and the new room was clean and spacious. The front desk staff seem very much over-worked, helping with breakfast and the bar next door. And one cannot get into breakfast without the front desk letting you in. There often was a line at the desk, and people ringing the bell several times. This was especially problematic when one wanted to grab breakfast or check out in a hurry. I think things will be much better if they can hire an additional person on the front and finish remodeling the showers on 1F. Otherwise the location was perfect and the staff were mostly friendly given the demands on them. Breakfast could be improved a bit (make sure there is enough mugs etc) and improve the quality.

Room was decent and fairly quiet. Bought breakfast one morning. There was virtually no food when we arrived and what was there was cold. Had to wait for more food to be cooked. Elevator was very slow.

Very close to the Southern Cross Station. Very reasonably priced. I would stay there again.

The legs of the bed, one was broken, the bedside lamp switch was faulty and the sound on one of the channels wasn’t working. I discussed my concerns with the night manager he swapped the lamp, tried to fix the tv channel and made a note about the bed leg. I was just disappointed that I felt it necessary to bring these faults to the managers attention so I wouldn’t of lost my desposit when left. These items should be regularly checked through hotel maintenance. The walls of the adjoining rooms must be very thin as we woken up by guests next door talking and playing music Thanks Sheryl Miller
