Entrance area looks really retro and flashy, but couldn't help feel like I was staying in an apartment in this hotel. The room fixtures just didn't live up to the price, which at 280 AUD (no breakfast, no decent speed Internet- wasn't up to pay another 20 bucks beyond the slow free one) seemed like too much to pay.
To top it off, they add in the annoying 5.60 extra to pay by credit card. After you have just forked out 280, this seems excessive. But it's not just them, seems like this is latest trick in most of Australia. I guess it helps keep them in the top 4 most expensive countries in world.
If the quality in most occasions matched the price you might feel a little better about that fact.
On the positive side the staff were all very nice, and the barman was really knowledgeable and attentive to our group. Nice cocktail lounge...
