Recent reviews

Very good 8.2 From 916 reviews

Good 6.0
Great location but a couple of draw backs
We were met at reception by a gentleman who couldn’t have cared less that we were checking in. Then we were told that there were no parking spots left in the garage (after their website said that parking was available onsite) but that we were welcome to ‘try’ and find street parking somewhere. If there is only limited parking available then that is what the website should state ... one of the main reasons we selected this hotel was because they had parking available. The room was very clean and comfortable, but was one floor up and facing the main street in Little Italy so was very loud until around 1.30am in the morning. The room was advertised as including blackout curtains - which it had - but they were only on one window and didn’t actually block out all the light so the room was too bright.

Good budget hotel in handy location
The hotel was clean and well located in little Italy close to lots of food options. The room was quite small and the bed was a bit too hard for me
Sharon, au6 night romance trip

Great location.
Friendly reception staff gave us lots of information about the hotel facility and service. We were there to catch up with family members so we didn’t go out around the area however lots of restaurants, cafes and bars around the hotel we saw while driving. The room we had was quite small, it was difficult to open 2 large suitcases however the room was kept very clean and in good condition. Enjoyed staying there for sure.

Love the ambience
Really enjoyed the European feel of the hotel, across from a city square, excellent espressos downstairs, lots of outside tables, walkable, and small but perfectly planned out and comfortable rooms.
