Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
3 nights stay, very adequate for my needs, clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed. Certainly the best hotel at this price, walking distance to restaurants, Oxford St, CBD, free wifi, even a balcony at this price point! Nil complaints.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Close to amenities. A bit derelict. In great need of reno. Staff pleasant and accomodating but rooms very tired. Threadbare carpet, water damaged walls all around skirting. Very reasonable price however. Would stay again because of price and convenience and better prepared of what to expect.
