    Rooms are small and very noisy. It seems you can hear every movement of every guest. The location is good and the staff are fine, just not the best rooms. I only stay here because of rewards night I accumulate from other Grand Chancellor hotels.

    Rooftop pool is awesome! Right nearby Chinatown, the major shopping centres, trams and Fed Square. Plenty of food options nearby too. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Not the most up to date bathroom or room styling but very comfortable.

    Chinatown
    Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
    to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
    simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
    a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
    over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
