Convenient location,friendly staff, a bit worn around the edges

Stayed 1 night in Jul 2019

2/5

The property was in a great location. Very convenient. The rooms were small but functioning. Check in took a very long time, probably at least 20 minutes when there was no one in line. My shower flooded my bathroom every time it was used. I was standing in water in a stand-up shower. The iron in my room not only did not work but it had a sticker that it had failed electric safety inspection. Then the front desk staff lost my laundry for 2 days. Only to discover that they had never sent it out. I am now stuck with dirty clothes for my week of work. The manager (I think it was the manager as the original employee had to get assistance) said he was sorry but there was no explanation or effort to fix the issue. Overall just very poor customer service.

3/5

Had to move rooms twice as there was issues with the first two (aircon not working, water in shower stopping and starting, safe not working, bed without topper...). One day the water to the whole building was shut off so had to go to the Thistle Hyde Park up the road for a shower. Eventually settled with a room with a double bed even though we had paid for a king. Staff were friendly enough though not particularly apologetic.
