Reception staff were very friendly. Hallways a bit tired. Some road noise and outside lights made for a restless night's sleep.

My advice stay at Ovolo or QT, where wifi is included, cost is similar and much closer to the city centre. The room was fine. The location is a fair distance from the city centre, so you would expect it to be cheaper for what you get. at $15 per day wifi is a complete rip-off. In this day and age, for this nightly price, it should be free. No ifs, no buts.

Dear Anonymous, I am glad you liked the room and appreciate that whilst we are not in the center of town with the opening of the light rail we will only be a few short stops from all the action. If wi fi is important to you then join our free loyalty program to enjoy complimentary drink card, wi fi, late check out and a host of other benefits. regards

Clean, new hotel. Friendly check-in staff. Quiet. Short drive to Lonsdale Street shopping and dining precinct in Braddon. Rooms a little small. Parking slightly convoluted, with $15 / night charge
