    Beautiful building stunning rooms but alas no view in my room very classy art deco feel in reception and common areas. Restaurant downstairs very reasonable with friendly staff.plenty of help and information at reception. Right next to central station.

    Tv was a bit small but thats only because of my poor eyesight

    The close proximity to Central Station, Chinatown & Paddy’s Markets made this hotel a perfect venue for a quick stay. The unique vintage of hotel didn’t stop the hotel from being clean, updated in important parts like the bathroom, and with a vintage feel rarely seen these days.

    The thin walls meant I could hear next door’s TV at 6am, though not enough to prevent further sleep.

    Early check in, location, art deco building

    The rooms were pretty dated, will not make up your room after midday, not enough toiletries for two people meaning you have to go get more
