    This hotel was central to everything we wanted, bars, cafes, restaurants and even Skycity Casino. Unfortunately, no aircon, just an upright fan. Yes, you could open the windows but certainly not for long due to the street noise. Made for a very stuffy uncomfortable night.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the old place. It's from a different era yet has good wifi and great service. Great location. Comfy large bed, white crisp linen, good shower. Dinner next door to the left was great and breakfast next door to the right was fantastic.
