Property condition


  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is great for a short stay. Quiet room. Room did not feel clean and had a bad mothball like smell which I found chemical pellets hidden in a art piece emitting the smell. Beds were rock hard and creaky. Not worthy of Lonely Planet high rating.

    Excellent stay

    We had a wonderful stay. The shack is very centrally located and within walking distance to most things. Lots of restaurants nearby but the hum of the traffic was left out on the street as the shack is tucked down a quiet alley way. Exceptional and attentive staff who made us feel right at home and provided an excellent breakfast. A little cosy oasis of calm in a loud and frenetic city.
