Good 7.2 From 636 reviews

Very good 8.0
Could be a lot cleaner to make it a lot nicer
The location was good and the view from the room very nice we were on 5th floor it would not be so nice on the lower floors. It’s spacious and has a balcony which is always nice. However it was not very clean. There was a hair on the plug by the bed and the carpets are all stained. The staff were all nice and of course the price was good. However more attention could be paid to housekeeping and clean windows would make the nice view a lot better. The hallways outside the rooms could use a good vacuum as well.

Poor 2.0
4.5 star? not a chance, pushing for 3.
Location is good, that's about it. 4.5 star?? no way more like 3 star. Another old hotel that appears to be bought out by a certain race and marketed as hi quality but essentially run down. Desk staff generally indifferent to guests. Paid much more than this hotel is worth. Charged us $30 a day for parking, not a real parking bay and required to leave keys so cars can be double parked and moved by strangers!? No way with hire vehicles! Eventually got this refunded. Put us on 9th floor under plant room. Sounded like a New York subway all night! insane noise in the bedrooms from machinery above the ceiling. No sleep first night. Carpets filthy, hall smelt like it had just been cleaned, damp and strong chemical smell. Moved to another room next morning on lower floor, no noise but main bed horrible, old spring mattress that was half collapsed. Breakfast: Juice and milk ok, museli ok, bread was wafer thin, the glad ziplock bags cost more than the rubbish bread in them. Not enough butter or jam provided for 3 paid up guests. Would not stay here again.
