Dodo worked out really well for us- we booked a couple of weeks in advance on the internet and got a really good rate. It was really clean and the staff were very helpful.
It's not right in the centre but only a few stops along on the tram but you wouldn't want to walk it, esp. at night. We also got ripped off by a cab driver one night who charged us at least double (but we didn't take advantage of the deal the hotel had with Smile cabs which might have avoided this).
Rooms were pretty smart and obviously new. Whenever we came in a 4am the doorman didn't speak much english at all, but this may not be a problem for some tourists (but on the plus side I'm pretty sure any bad guys wouldn't have been able to get into the place with him about!)
