  • 4.0.Fair

    awful customer services, convenience in location

    It was awful from check in to check out, ALL staff kept unfriendly!NO FREE WiFi BUT booking show free WiFi?? The room is comfortable a bit disappointed is keeping Ice Cream from melting in the refrigerator. Also no shower gel provided (only soap and shampoo). 5 minutes walk to Southern Cross station (Sky bus station to/from airport) and you can take free city tram (within free tram zone station) which is really convenience to shopping and sightseeing in CBD. Supermarket and outlet nearby. We checked out in the morning on Feb 12 and kept our luggage in the hotel. When we took our luggages back around 22:30 and repack. I requested the 2 female staff at reception to use the toilet (only one toilet in the lobby which is just behind the reception area and the key is kept by staff). I didn’t know why the 2 female staff refuse to give me the toilet key! They told me unfriendly to come to the restaurant nearby if you want to use toilet because the toilet is LOCKED! I wonder why I can use the toilet when check in but cannot use after check out! ALL THEY behave Without knowledge of customer service, accomodate guest’s requests!! They simply don’t care. If only choosing for its location, there is many choice! I won’t introduce to friends to stay in this hotel.

    Reception's attitude was bad

    During check in, guests on our left and right all got upgraded except us. Seems like our booking agent is not recognised enough for upgrades. We were told that the others were there early but we were at the hotel lobby since 10.30 am and we left our bags there as the rooms were not ready.

    Great to get the front facing room.....not behind

    Better than what we expected or read before we arrive.

  • 6.0.Good

    Hotel is within walking distance to the train station. Cleanliness is acceptable though room amenities are rather basic. As written by some reviewers, can hear some street noise during the night despite the street not having much traffic but noise level is bearable and should not affect your sleep unless you are a light sleeper.

    Convenient to Southern X. Quick check in - friendly. Room fine but needs refurbishing - bedding, carpet, etc. En suite fine.
