As a five star hotel, the Park Hyatt has all the things one would expect like robes and slippers but I found it was very bland from the grand but soul-less reception area to the hallways. The service was adequate but did not give that feeling of welcome that some hotels seem to give.
My main reason for the poor rating is that everything is an added extra in addition to the already high room tariff such as parking($40) internet access (25) Bottle of water in the room (6) and the abundant but overpriced breakfast at $45. Also with the breakfast I was presented with the bill without being asked if I was finished which gave me the impression I was to leave.
As for the location, it is in a back street behind the parliment which is a fair distance from the city centre. Considering the number of quality hotels in the CBD or along the riverbank there are many more appealing places to stay.
In short, nothing really wrong, but nothing really right.
