The staff were friendly and put up with us even when we were noisy. Lots of amenities and close to heaps of things. We had a 6 min walk from the Train station to the Hotel. Awesome! The meals were on point and not overly priced. The front of house Bar was great and staff there were also lovely.

A well located, close to Central Station and Chinatown, basic, if slightly faded, Hotel. Modestly priced; it was very clean, although the walls are a little thin.
