It’s a great location and a pretty cool building. Easy access to Broadway, the CBD, buses and trains makes it a great choice.

Unique building with pretty exterior. Room was average size with a small bathroom, pretty much what I expected considering the price and location. Everything was cleaned.. but felt kind of grubby? The room felt humid & I could hear every cough or toilet flush from the room next door. Was fine for a one night stay.

Great location. Friendly helpful staff. Room was good value for money, but fairly basic. No view from my room, but I enjoyed having coffee on the balcony. Would happily stay there again

This property is not a thing like what I was expecting; particularly considering the price and the star rating. The building itself is quite nice considering how old it is, but the rooms themselves are downright awful. We stayed in a double room with ensuite, but the ensuite was basically unusable. The door to the ensuite (which should be a sliding door!) completely blocks access to the shower when opened, and the only way to access it is by awkwardly standing over the toilet and closing the door behind you. On top of this, the toilet was uncomfortable to use due to how close it is to the sink, and the position you have to sit in to avoid hitting it. Moving on to the bed, I understand that this is by no means a luxury hotel, but having stayed in plenty of budget accommodation before I can safely say the mattress was horribly uncomfortable by anyone's standard. Finally, there was the issue of the "water closet". What I am referring to here is a small cupboard next to the bed containing some plumbing from the floor above. The pipe had water draining through it almost the entire time we were there, and the door didn't have any kind of soundproofing to alleviate this issue. On top of this, the pipe wasn't even sealed around its entry to the roof cavity, so we had roaches coming out of the void multiple times making our experience quite disgusting. Staying in this room put a dark cloud over my partner's birthday weekend, and I can safely say we will not be back!

Dear Anonymous, Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We apologise, however we have people staying all the time in the Double Budget Ensuite Room and they have never mentioned the problems above. The price is actually more than reasonable considering the location (I invite you to check the rates around the area) and the feedback from most of our guest is positive. Since you do not like anything there is no point for me to go through each point you wrote. We take very seriously the constructive feedback from our guests but we do not think this is the case. We wish you all the best!
