A friend of mine and I visited the Hotel in August 2002 and we really enjoyed our stay!
We had a hotel room, which ovelooked the opera house and the bridge (Great full view)!
The staff is very nice and very helpful, the location is very lively at night and we never got bored walking in the hotel area!
Please note that when we were there there were quite a few strip joints in the area and there were people soliciiting clients to enter! That didn't bother us but if it bothers you don't go to this area!
Furthermore, there are several restaurants and bars in the area and the place is lively all night long but you will not hear any noise from your room!
