The Olsen team went above anything I expected to ensure my mother's 60th was a special night. Our twin room was upgraded to a penthouse compliments of the hotel, and we were treated to a bottle of bubbles and late checkout. A truly luxurious experience!...More

In town for business I was suggested to book here. Good hotel, perfect location. Room was perfect, not noisy and clean. Minus: 1. Ridiculous breakfast system 2. You qualify yourself as Art Series and room was full of ugly copies. Is that consistency?

I have walked from the hotel to MOPT via birrang- mar . Its doable but would not recommend. The city has great public transportation so renting a car is not essential.
