As pointed out by others, the place is noisy. Not helped by the fact that the window didn’t shut properly meaning you hear the street noise. Heat pump was broken and plug in panel heater couldn’t keep up. Cobwebs all over the ceiling and previous guests hair on the carpet and in the bathroom. Great location and USB ports in the lamp were a nice touch though! And $180 per night didn’t help. At half that it would be an ok crash pad but don’t expect it to live up to “hotel” standards.

You get what you pay for ... as many other reviews have noted - lovely old hotel in great location for central city, bars, restaurants - even to walk to FMG Stadium; rooms large, clean and beds comfortable; bathroom was clean, adequate. Downsides: - verrry bland front desk attendee .. when he got there, "welcome' was non-existent, tho' rather more animated when we left the next day (?!!); - foyer quite grand, but very tired from thereon in; - no parking / pay extra

Don't be fooled by the lovely reception area, once you are in the mouldy smelly lift the facade falls away. The entire property is in dire need of refurbishment. Entire place, including our room, smelt mouldy. The bathroom in our room was incredibly dirty with mould in the grout and around the fixtures. Curtains mouldy. We had a room on the roadside and we got very little sleep due to the level of noise from the bars below. Parking a block away which is difficult to get luggage to the room. No-pne on site after 11pm which was worrying. Will never stay again.
