Positive Reviews

A breath of fresh air...

Guests generally love the rooms with large balconies attached; many have a pleasant city view as well as fresh air. The rooms are widely described as spacious and clean, with very comfortable beds and tasteful decor. The Nespresso machines in the Privilege rooms are a much appreciated luxury, and most find the air conditioning effective, too.

Get off to a good start...

Many travellers describe the front desk staff as friendly, helpful, and fluent in English. The breakfast buffet, while not inexpensive, is generally described as varied, fresh, and delicious.

A well connected location...

Drivers appreciate the secure underground car parking on site, though travellers are most enthusiastic about the location's public transport connections. There is a tram stop right out front which offers a pleasant 10-15 minute commute into the city centre, a journey which takes about 20-30 minutes on foot along the waterfront. The hotel is also within a few minutes' walk of the train station, where guests can also catch a direct bus to the airport.

Negative Reviews

Technical difficulties...

Recent travellers have expressed frustration with the free Wi-Fi, though many do find it reasonably speedy when it is working.

A little short-staffed...

Guests arriving in the evening hours are often surprised to find just one staff member present to handle other duties as well as reception, which can often result in long waits. The restaurant also closes early in the evenings and on weekends.

Counting the stars...

Guests often comment that the standard guest room amenities are not up to a "four star" standard (no minibar, paper cups, toilet tissue dispensed by the sheet instead of on a roll, etc). Some guests also warn of a few unfriendly faces at the front desk, and note the neighbourhood is not the "nicest" either, especially after dark.
