We booked this a few months ago through a booking website. Upon arrival we prepaid the two days. The receptionists are friendly and helpful. The room (3rd floor) was tidy, not very large, with a small outdated TV, and an interior of which I could not figure out if it was really old or just retro style. It was however not unpleasant and all was clean. The bathroom was clean with a good shower and everything was basic, but generally clean. We received a voucher for a small drink, to be claimed in the adjacent bar (worth $5 or so)
When we returned in the evening (Friday and Saturday in the small hours) there was a massive noise from the nearby discos, which even made the sideboards in the room vibrate. Although we both fell asleep immediately and slept through the night, and were not woken up, I could image that this may inconvenience people quite considerable. At the second night we returned around 3AM and it was still a massive noise out there. We had back-facing rooms, but the receptionist explained to us that all rooms in fact are noisy, also the front facing ones! Regarding value for money: It is centrally located, therefore rather pricey, has only basic comfort, but clean, so we guess that we pay for the location and compromise on comfort and amenities (No WIFI available in the rooms, did not test the WIFI in the lobby. As this Hotel is aimed at city exploring travellers, the lack of WIFI can be annoying for many!
Airport access is very good, as the 747 green bus leaves just around the corner (50m away), which is convenient even with massive luggage,
