Pretty pathetic- change name and guess what, standards get lower- same old filty apartment with grubby lifts and room that could do with a few coats of paint- beds hard and uncomfortable- could not understand the receptionist at all over the phone especially - employ people who can at least speak ENGLISH

Recently stayed at this establishment but never again . Two single beds pushed together , fair enough but not with a two inch difference in bed heights , no cold water in bathroom sink , this was reported to reception but never fixed , the rooms small courtyard was continually littered with cigarette butts thrown from rooms above even after we reported this to staff , no change of linen or towels for two days . We will not be staying here again ......

Conveniently located close to attractions but the air conditioning was noisy and the room paint was tired. No wireless Internet and room cleaning lacked attention. Staff were friendly but quiet. In our estimation larger rooms were overpriced.

We stayed at APX formerly Quest on Dixon earlier this year. I think the change of ownership has definately lowered the standards of this Hotel. During our stay we did not have our linen,towels changed or tea/coffe etc replenished for 3 days due to no service on Sundays and Public Holidays.We were not informed about this in advance.Having wet towels hanging around for 3 days is not very pleasant. What Hotel does not service their rooms for 3 days. THIS ONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Unbelievable... During our stay the fire alarms went off and 2 fire engines arrived. We were not instructed what to do.No evacuation process seemed to be in place.I felt our safety was being compromised.The standard of service was just not good enough. We will definately not be staying here again or recommending this hotel to any of our friends.

Room with a view............ended up looking at the high rise opposite and the dirty smelly laneway below, TV worked now and then, had to continually ask for tea bags / milk and toilet paper, definately not the star rating they advertise, choose elsewhere, you have been warned.
