The hotel is in a good position, and the laundry facilities were good, but other than that the hotel does not have a lot going for it. I would stay there again only if the price was right. The rooms are a good size and the bathroom was perfectly okay (except for a noise issue with the pipes). The front desk staff were not very friendly. Don't expect to be able to check-in before the 3pm check-in time. We were immediately told on arrival that we were too early for check-in and that no room would be made available before 3pm. This is perfectly understandable when the hotel is full, which we were told it was, but no offer was made to check on whether any room would become available earlier than 3pm. We were just told to come back at 3pm. Not a great welcome after a 10 hour flight from Sydney. Our room had an issue with a high-pitched noise coming from the bathroom ceiling, but we were told nothing could be done about it. This noise went on intermittently throughout each night of our stay. The air-conditioning units on the building next door are extremely loud and we were unable to sleep with the balcony door open because of the noise. The air-conditioning in the room was aimed directly at the beds and this resulted in waking up cold through the night. Overall the room was clean and housekeeping did a good job, but the hallway areas are looking very tired and are in need of an update. There was a problem initially with our booking and we were told no room was available for us, however the hotel did rectify the problem and managed to find a room for us.
