2/10 Poor

A poor backpackers not a hotel
This property was awful, the worst excuse for a hotel I’ve stayed in for many years. The photo on the listing is fraudulent as it’s definitely not taken at this property. The room was a converted office, bare concrete floor, no windows or ventilation, horribly stained mattress. I arrived and realised where I was… 10 years ago I was on the board of an organisation across the corridor from my ‘room’ and 10 years ago we terminated the lease as the earthquake risk was too high to have staff working here… and now it’s calling itself a hotel. On top of that the warrant of fitness for the building and the lifts expired in March 2022.

Are u sure this is a Hotel?
It should not be rated as Hotel. It looks like warehouse room then put bathroom & bed in. No operator, No staff at premise. Feel unsafe once emergency happens!

2/10 Poor

So dang scarey that I couldnt stay there. The two guys in the lift stared at my handbag. The space outside the luft but inside the premisis is foreboding....was I going to be mugged? Would I sleep, or wonder who had cut themselves a spare key? Hells bells I jyst went back out and slept in my car...then dropped the key back in the morning. It was still a scarey space even in broad morning lught. Dont stay there unless you are with another person. The protest was on that morning and I felt safer hearing it unfold in the streets than I did in these premises. (Sorry owners).
