                  the location was excellent, easy to find, the rooms while small were comfortable, clean and welcoming. Parking was available above Atrium on Elliott and the charges were reasonable.

                  I didn't like the way i was treated by the the first staff member to greet us. He was rude and diffident. we felt unwelcome after his comments that i had scored two units at the reduced price and that it should only have been one unit. He went on to say that his manager had made a mistake and made more rooms available on the website than she should have. so that my bookings were in fact an error. i would recommend City Central Hotel but i would warn my friends to be aware of possible unpleasant reception staff.

                • Couple
                  3.8

                  Location is the only thing worth in this hotel.

                  Two staffs are rude- one called "Dane", the other one is an Asian male staff, he does not wear name tag and was on duty in reception on 28 June evening. That Asian staff treated us rude when we told him our purchased Internet card expired after we only used 5 minutes, he replied as despite attitude and told we should shut down the computer to avoid continue charge from Internet card. But we think that because of public computer does not set up very well, they neither put the reminder near the computer, therefore the misunderstanding caused. Dane put the key heavily in the desk when we check out, he is also rude to the clients.

                  Location and the jelly beans at the front counter

                  When you thinking about tiny, it is smaller than that!!!dont go there with heavy luggage no one helps!!!

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  The studio rooms have double glazing and due to the location this is a must they also have air con which is also a plus

                  Air con was a little noisy and there was some noticeable dust in our room

                • Couple
                  4.2

                  Location was convenient

                  Staff were unfriendly; room was small and far from a 'studio apartment' (the 'kitchen' consisted of a kettle); no windows.

                • Couple

                  location, and cost.

                  The staff on the evening i got there

                  Price and location.

                  Room to small. Linen was badly stained. Either stop using Alsco to clean it or buy replacements for wore out linen.

                • Group of friends
                  5.4

                  I was travellinfg with a friens who stayed in a room 4 or 5 down the corridor from me. We both booked at the same time (through different channels). I paid 125 per night, he paid $80. I know that I booked a better room than him but was put on the same floor.

                • Older travelers
                  5.8

                  Location and proximity to cbd and parking building

                  The photos on website mis-represented the rooms completely. The photos (and price) indicated a reasonable sized room when it was so small we could barely move around the bed. The bathrooms were very old fashioned and the ventilation was so poor the entire room fogged up when you took a shower. There was no table/vanity to put cosmetics on. The windows wouldn't open in the room (possibly safety) except top ones and as there was no air conditioning we had to leave these open and sleep was disrupted from the noise off the streets. I will not stay there again as there are so many other places at that price that offer better facilities.

                  Convinces to city central

                  No ceiling fan in bathroom and we both thought about why rooms were close to laundry and it was nosiey and stuffy in room

                  Location for my needs.

                  Noisy 'equipment' close to my inner rooftop view room. Limited storage space for a 6 night stay.

                  7.4

                  Friendly staff. Close to buses. Easy to get around from hotel.

                  Very noisy due to nearby bars/cafes.
