    A great spot. Right on the waterfront (per the name) and surrounded amidst plenty of dining options. Transport is a short walk away to the buses and ferries. The room was clean, service was on point. Their rooftop terrace is a little treat.

    Good for a short stay, very central.

    We would like to Thanks Alex on the front desk as he was really kind to let us stay till 5. The pool is really cosy. Rooms are a bit compact but the view to the waterfront is lovely. Breakfast wasn't so great, just basic but again the view while having breakfast was amazing.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Terrible 😞

    I booked a room with a balcony and sea view but when we arrived they didn’t have the right room for us. They tried to give us a room with no view and no balcony. My room was fully paid in advance I especially booked the room with the balcony and sea view so that my boyfriend and I capful see the fireworks for new year’s countdown but the hotel wouldn’t give us the right room. We waited for the manager to arrive but never came. We waited two hours in the lobby no solution was done. The receptionist said their system showed no rooms available for the one I fully paid for. We ask for a refund but didn’t want to give refund either so we ended up booking another hotel. It was a terrible experience. Until now we are still waiting for a response from the hotel manager but still nothing.

    Fantastic view across the bay so definitely recommend upgrading to a sea view. Cannot fault the hotel or its staff in any way.

    Stay elsewhere.

    So dusty. The air filter had not been changed and the room made me sick. Carpets not vacuumed. Dirty tea kettle and glassware. Mediocre breakfast. The “fitness center” is a joke. No information about room service. Most of the TV functions don’t work.
