Fabulous 8.8 From 31 reviews

Very good 8.0
Good location 3 star
Room was clean, though a little dated. Hotel is close to center and public transport links right outside the door. Breakfast was good quality though minimal offerings. Room was basic but experience was boosted with a free local travel pass and free drinks in the fridge. Good wifi.

Classy, modern, convenient to the train station
As said by others, the rooms are the fourth floor of a large building. Rooms are modern and sleek. The bed was firm but we slept well and the pillows were nice. Having a separate sitting area with sofa was nice, just wish we had been able to stay longer. There were more power points than any place I have ever seen, only thing missing was any USB ports. The location has pros and cons. Close to the station and trams, and just off the expressway, but no real neighborhood places to eat. And train and tram noise was constant. Also you have to park at the train station lot (building) which can be confusing to get to. Definitely better to park first and walk rather than go to the hotel then try to find your way back. Staff were very nice and the continental breakfast was good, though lacking in fruit. Check when you arrive to see if your room rate includes it or not, especially when booking through a third party site, it is not always clear. If it is, it is a nice bonus.
