A very modern and funky hotel. I loved the architecture and decor. The staff were friendly and helpful. I loved the free mini bar and loot bag!.

This hotel’s location is really great, the city centre is just within minutes walk and very convenient. The room was spacious and there is a bar/dining at the lobby which has a very relaxing atmosphere. Unfortunately though, during our stay where we had to add an extra bed because there were 3 of us, some of the amenities were only prepared for 2 people. When we asked for an extra set to the staff, not through the phone as the in-room phone was not working properly, the response was not pleasant and the extra set took a long time to come. Other than some nitpick, we had a really great night. We would definitely recommend the hotel

Very disappointing. The staff at the hotel were really lovely but our room was awful and really disappointing. We booked the original atrium room, but our room was very small, dark and cramped. I felt really claustrophobic and uncomfortable being in the room. There wasn’t even two seats (or the space for two seats) in the room to sit down and there was no coffee machine. I don’t think this property has the amenities of a 5 star hotel. We booked this hotel for a special weekend away and it really ruined our weekend. The breakfast is continental (fruit, toast, cereal) which I also didn’t expect from a 5 star hotel.

It’s a funky hotel. Love the architecture and interior design. And LOVE the free mini bar and extras provided. Lollies in reception....nothing not to like.
