The best features of the hotel are the location and the lobby. It is a short walk to the Opera house which is one of the best parts of the city. The hotel website describes it as a comfortable business hotel, appointed with lots of marble. The lobby is rich with marble accents, however that is where it stops. The guestrooms are average at best, in the style of an old Holiday Inn in the US in desperate need of refurbishment. My room didn't even have a box of kleenex. The bed which consisted of a thin mattress with no box spring was as hard as a rock, and the rooms they refer to as "suites" are small and cramped. My "suite" had a shower enclosure but no shower, only a hand held spray contraption.
The buffet breakfast has the smallest selection of food I have ever encountered and there is not an a la carte menu. I found it amusing to watch hotel guests pace the four foot buffet table trying to find something to eat.
If you are looking for a place to sleep in a great location at a good price, this is your hotel. However if you desire something more than basic, or even with a hint of upscale, go elsewhere.
