I took the airport bus from the door 9, it cost me $16 and the driver helped me to get off at right stop for the hotel Best western at Victoria St west, it was only 4 min walk to the hotel.
I quickly left my luggage at the hotel and took Ho Ho from Sky about 3 mins walk. When I came back the check in was very quick; my room was very clean and elegant with brilliant view of the sky tower. Raj was most helpful to give me directions to buy adaptor, he also loaned me one temporary so I could charge both my gadgets and I bought an adaptor from Dick Smith about 10 mins walk from the hotel for $20.
Best western charge extra $10 for wifi but you can get 30 mins free in lobby. I paid $5 for 4 hours in lobby as I just needed it just for one hour but when I came back there were no seats in lobby as big group of a tour were having meeting there so It is worthwhile to pay $10 and have it in your room but when I asked the lady at reception about the option, she was rude and refused to sort it out. It was only $5 but it is question of principle, she is the only lady who lacked patience throughout all my travels so far but some of the staff like Raj, was most courteous and helpful so it made it up;
The hotel is in excellent location, 3 mins from Sky and 5 mins walk to intercity bus, my room was clean, spacious, the bed was comfortable, good size bathroom and a little kitchenette with microwave. I would definitely recommend this hotel but if you need wifi just pay $10 extra to have it in the comfort of your room.
