Fabulous 8.6 From 514 reviews

Very good 8.0
Room to improve a little, but comfortable.
Breakfast was not up to a 4 star standard. Cleaning equipment left in the hallways each day was sub standard. A little run down. Great location, friendly staff.

Fair 4.0
Nice, but not ideal
The stay at the City life was nice, but not ideal. The capped WiFi, room temperature, as well as the room cleanliness were the negatives. In 2019, to stay at a hotel that caps your WiFi is a bit over the top, especially traveling for business. This made working from the room difficult or not an option at all. The room was large, which is nice, but the bedroom is a completely separate room from the living room. This wouldn't be an issue except the hotel did not have any internal air-con, only wall units. The air-con was so far away from the bedroom no cold air made it into the bedroom. Sleeping at night was miserable. They provided small fans/heaters, which helped but also just made it frustrating. The room was "newly" renovated in the bathroom and the bedroom fixtures, but you could tell everything else was dated. Strange stains on the ceiling, gross carpet, and dirty old couch pillows made the stay not as comfortable as it should have been. That and the cockroaches that would appear on the ceiling and out of the closet, in the bedroom. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is located in a great spot, easy access to Countdown and short walk to the water.
