Excellent location, just right next to Mitchell Street, the liveliest stretch within the city centre. A stone throw away from the Esplanade, a few steps from the Smith St Shopping Centre, Coles and Woolies just around the corner. A comfortable walking distance to the city bus interchange. The free shuttle bus to Parap Saturday morning market stops here. We had a nice 20 minutes stroll to the Waterfront.
The room was spacious, with 2 double beds, well appointed, well equipped and very clean. The fragrant, citronella based bathroom amenities, were our favourite. Citronella is a good insect repellent, useful in the tropical weather.
DIY laundry room with washer and dryer available for use at reasonable rate. Ice-machine was also available on 3rd floor.
The complimentary breakfast was wonderful. There was a continental buffet spread and we could order cooked food from a list provided. Out of the 4 mornings we were there, there was 1 morning when the ready-to-order hot food was not made available as they have prepared an expanded buffet for a big group. If you do not fancy hotel food, there are plenty of international food joints on the ground floor, including Indonesian halal cafe and the halal certified Nandos.
Staff were very friendly, attentive and very helpful. We must single out Pat who was flawless in her service.
Upon check-out, our luggage was locked in a secure room and properly tagged. After a full day of sightseeing, we were allowed to shower and freshen up at the poolside washrooms before we left the hotel for the airport.
If only there is free Wi-fi available, this would have been a faultless stay. (There is a convenience store cum cafe just next door, where they provide free wifi for a cup of coffee, and if you need to shop for some Aussie souvenirs, there's a store next door too)
