Liked: Friendly staff and good parking spots (but had to pay!)

Disliked: In general the price is too high for the very small room I had. The bathroom is Toilet and Shower in the same cabin within the small room. No problem for Backpacker-Level but with the Hotel pricing unacceptable!

Liked: A very clean, nice place for a great price! Such a nice hotel. Beautiful rooms. Chill Out Bar and restaurant is amazing!

Disliked: It is a bit out of the way; in the suburbs. A $3 train ticket ride and a ten minute walk from station but not much else around the hotel besides the 2/3 bars and restaurants they have.

Liked: it is a big and well - organised company.

Disliked: 1) EXTREMELY SMALL rooms and beds! 2) SMELLS AWEFYLLY really bad thing is that their toilet is inside the shower, and they have a big problem with water drainning systhem in the shower. it smells revolting, and given that your shower is your toilet and it is all located in you 2,5x2,5m room and doesn't have a dorr to seprate it, you room smellls awfull as well. 3) REMOTE LOCATION - it sounds like it is next to the city, and easily accessible, but it actually is not. just think about the fact that if you once take a taxi to the hotel it will cost you $50. you may wish to pay a bit more, but stay in a normal hotel in the city may be I was just unlucky one, but I would say that the cost-quality ratio is not the best

Liked: Good value and excellent clean new facilities, very helpful staff.

Disliked: The bathroom was very small but adequate, except for one design fault. The showerhead is located above the toilet bowl, and the toilet's flush button is hidden behind towels hanging on the rack. The showerbutton is located above the toilet and this is how I took two showers while clothed.
