It is not a fancy hotel but met our needs as a family of five. We had no problems checking in. As a family of five we had to book two rooms and we were fortunate to be able to get two rooms side by side. There is no connecting door within the room to the other room and that is the only inconvenience. Being a hotel in the city, it is not known for its spaciousness but I am quite alright as I do not feel overly cramped. If you have kids who want to run around the room, then this is not the hotel. If you have someone with a wheelchair, manoevering around the room can be a challenge. You are warned. Bathrooms are functional and by that I mean a shower cubicle, sink with not much sink space to put your toiletry bags and a toilet bowl. Bring your own toothbrush as only the soap and shampoo is provided. Other than that, the rooms are well-equipped with a kettle, fridge, coffee, tea, sugar, hot choc, tv. Pillows are too soft for me but that is individual preference. Front desk personnel are helpful and friendly. Wifi is free if you are in the lobby for thirty minutes each time you log in. If you want a longer period of wifi then you will have to pay. I like the location because I can walk opposite to Langham Road to get to the the shopping street and to the cable car that leads one to the Botanic Gardens. To get to the restaurants, walk behind the hotel and you will see the wharf. The restaurants at the Wharf are worth a try. This hotel is also easy to get to and from the airport if you are driving . The only bummer is the difficulty in getting a carpark slot along the streets. Parking within the hotel is available but we were not willing to pay for it. Just be very careful where you park along the street. Different slots have different time rates.
