Overnight weekday stay
Cheap city hotel in CBD, opposite town hall and library, one block from a shopping mall and arcades. Close to concert hall, short walk. Red cat free bus is 100m away. Rooms are okay, fridge with milk and tea coffee supplies. Large bath towels, clean looks to be relatively new bathroom. Staff are always friendly and greet you on the way in or out. There is a $250 fee to credit card for damages, refund instigated on check out. Never had an issue with refund, just be aware the fee is charged. Cafes around, never had an issue over many visits with security in the area, normal precautions advised.

Okay, but Not Great
While I was expecting super-basic since I paid around $70 USD, I wasn't exactly prepared for peeling paint, shredded carpet, and a slightly musty smell accompanied by what looked like pink mildew stains on the shower curtain. I've stayed in very old hotels before with peeling paint, so that alone wouldn't bother me, and the shredded/torn carpet on the stairs was whatever, but the mildew stains and musty scent weirded me out a bit because I worried that the place may not be entirely clean. There weren't any bugs that I could see, so that's good, but I'm not sure I can entirely recommend this hotel. It gave the overall sense that it was NOT in good repair. The front desk staff were very nice, though, so that's a plus, and I was only staying for one night, so I decided to deal with it. If I was staying for longer, I would have definitely gone somewhere else.

Art Deco property with many of the original features still providing excellent service. Everything is provided for a decent stay in a basic level of comfort. Surrounding area is quiet at night, and the City centre is pretty much on the doorstep - everything you need is within walking distance. It would be nice to see this property renovated to bring back its former lustre - it is living history :-) The in-house restaurant wasn't available whilst I was staying, but the local area is not short of eateries, so you won't be short of dining options. Very helpful and pleasant staff.
