The hotel is located in a very convenient central location, right in the heart of the city, next to the City Mall and within a few minutes' walk to the Tourist Office, the Franklin wharf, Salamanca area, etc.
It has only 11 rooms on top of the reception which is a bar that is closed at about 10pm. Therefore do not expect services that you normally have in other standard hotels such as 24/7 reception, restaurant, room services, concierge, etc.
The bedrooms are arranged along one side of a U-shaped corridor which wraps around the stairs. As our room (room 6) is right on the landing of the stairs, which are of timber and not carpeted, we had noise problems from guests which wore hard-heeled shoes going up and down the stairs. The standard double-bed room is resonably sized and quite new and clean.
Breakfast is included with the room. It is not a full continental breakfast but the servings are sufficient. You have a choice of either cereal, or muesli or a hot dish such as toasts with bacon and egg, all with juice/tea/coffee. The hotel serves a limited menu for lunch. No dinner is served. However there are a few cafes nearby and many restaurants in the Salamanca area.
There is a taxi stand right at the entrance to the hotel. The stop for the airport shuttle bus is about 50 m away, opposite the corner nearest to the hotel. The hotel reception was quite helpful in making the booking for the shuttle to the airport for us.
We did not use the wired internet service so can not comment. We were disappointed that the hotel has no WIFI service.
We booked the double-bed room through Agoda and paid about AUD 100 per night.
