Quite new which overall made it look clean and tidy. Beds were comfortable, daily housekeeping and free water. Also received a free drink in the bar below on arrival. Has a laundry with washing machine and dryer. Bar, bistro and small gambling hall on the ground floor was convenient. Location good with 1 min access to train or tram to the CBD Only issue we had was with the aircon unit which made a really loud noise for about 5-10 seconds once every 1-2 hours.

The Hotel is set above a bar/gambling venue, which is not immediately apparent from the information listed on the website. Checking in involved being jostled around by drunk patrons stumbling through from one side of the venue to the other. The streets outside had a number of drunk and/or homeless people, and left us feeling unsafe walking to and from our car in the carpark. The walls are paper thin, and we could hear trains and sirens until well after midnight, leading to a sleepless night.
