The recommendation for the George William came from an Information booth staffer, and we were very pleased with the result. The hotel is so centrally located that we could walk, access public transport as well as get out of the CBD and head for several parks to relax.
Rooms are small, but well laid out, maximizing the space and providing a desk--or counter space--that we used effectively. The restaurant downstairs was reasonable and had great breakfasts. Hotel staff could not have been any nicer, going above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.
Upon reading the hotel literature, we realized that this hotel is owned by the YMCA and run as a non-profit. From the contemporary design, clean lobby and rooms, it was not evident that this was anything but a boutique hotel.
If the rooms were bigger, I'd give it 5 stars, but don't let that deter you from a great accommodation. Terrific value for the money!
