Room 11 is way too noisy
The room (11) we stayed in was fine without being good, old and a little rough around the edges. But reflective of the cheap price. The hotel itself if cute and pretty clean. However there was one massive issue. There must be some kind of electrical motor outside the window of the room which made it almost impossible to sleep, starting and stopping every 2 minutes. Really it should be flagged with guests prior to them staying in it, as its noy reasonable to assume people will be able to get a good night's sleep

Found it next to impossible to sleep in this hotel. Being in the CBD some noise was to be expercted, however the walls were so thin that all the noises from the Street below were so loud it felt like there were no walls at all. The blinds had a large gap, and the light from the streetlight directly in front fell across the head of the bed, making it permanantly bright. The room was reasonaby clean, though old and worn.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property was disgusting. The hotel has not been maintained over the years and looks like temporary accommodation used by Housing. It smelt dank and stale, the communal area carpets were stained and paint was peeling off the walls. The "upgraded" room we stayed in had a tattered chair in the corner covered in stains and the fabric was so work you could see the frame of the chair, a faux wood covered fridge from the 1970's that stank like it hadn't been opened for over 30 years, dirty coffee cups and a coating of dirt that covered the side table and cabinet. The decaying bathroom was the worst. There was mould coating the ceiling of the shower, the lino floor of the bathroom was covered in previous guests hair along with dirt and grime, and the basin was water damaged and falling apart. We stayed for one night and obtained a refund for the second night. The man on the desk obliged immediately but not without some sass, so clearly it's not an uncommon request.
