I recently stayed in the Sudima for the first time and had a great experience. At time of booking I had the option of a standard or deluxe room (deluxe only being apprx $30.00 more) so I thought why not. I was not disappointed with my choice. Nice refurbished room, well equipped with a flat screen, sky ect. The location was great close to the city centre.

After I had booked I was a bit nervous with some of the reviews I had read about the smell and the rooms ect but I found the smell of sulphur bearable and it is only when you are parking your car that you are greeted by the smell.

I would definitely recommend a deluxe room. Very happy with my stay.

The hotel itself is outdated and is located in the smelliest part of Rotorua. The entire town of Rotorua smells of sulfur but we found that the Sudima hotel was literally the smelliest part of town. The staff at the hotel was friendly and helpful and the hotel is walking distance from shops and restaurants in Rotorua. However, the state of the rooms and the smell would keep me from going back.

We recently stayed only one night in this hotel and wished we had stayed at the Millenium one located next door (it looks definitely more modern than Sudima). The Sudima hotel needs major refurbishment, it has a great location by the lake but our rooms smelled terribly and looked and feelt too old.

This hotel is very big one and room views vary quite a lot. We had more apartment type ground floor room with small yard that though didn't have any chairs or tables. Interior was OK, enough space to move around with luggages open. Rotorua sights and services are within walking distance, some travellers may find smell of Lake Rotorua disturbing if wind direction is unlucky but if that's an issue, perhaps alternative destination should be picked for holiday. Nice Polynesian Spa is right door to hotel, pay a visit there to enjoy hot baths. Hotel has its own pool, too. Breakfast was very good with varioty of choices available.

We had a room on the third floor with view on the lake. The room itself looked quite average. It was hot in the room (sunny day + curtains weren't closed...) and the airconditioning didn't work well. Opening the window wasn't a good solution: at some times the rotten-eggs-smell got so bad that we had to close the window again. The location was great: close to the lake (nice walks there!) and convenience stores, a little farther away from shops and restaurants but still fine. We didn't eat in the restaurant or book the maori show as it seemed too expensive. There are cheaper restaurants in the centre + the Mitai and Te Puia maori cultural shows looked more interesting. The bar closed at 10pm and only had a small selection of drinks. We did use the hot pool and the swimming pool - they were both quite small, but at least they were free (the Polynesean Spa next door costs $40 per person). Tip: if you don't like the shower in the hotel room, use one of the showers in the pool - there's much more pressure on those ones.
