Stayed in this hotel on a package tour, so was a little worried about the negative reviews. To be honest, I haven't had any problems during my stay.
+ location is very central - near the Opera, City Hall and all the major shopping malls, you can walk everywhere by foot.
+/- buffet breakfast could be better, but generally was ok
+/- rooms are refurbished (at least, on 6-7 floors), bathroom is in acceptable condition. I didn't notice any roaches, as some reviewers have mentioned.
- hotel is old and it clearly shows. Carpets are old, furniture is dated etc. Could do a lot better after the full refurbishment.
