My stay here was overall good. People are really nice and friendly at reception. There's a great bar and restaurant on the roof which is really cool but they don't serve local food.

I had read that the Nak was noisy at night and early in the morning so I took ear plugs with me, and I'm glad I did. With earplugs in, I don't really have any complaints about the Nak. The room was fantastic, we stayed in the tranquility suite AU$55 per night. Great bed, bathroom, with air conditioner and TV....

Loved the interior of the room & the lobby... but absolutely in love with the roof garden bistro & bar, which was the reason why I booked NAK in the first place. Wake up to the bustling of activities in the morning, due to NAK's location near the harbour, bus station & the old market. That said, it was conveniently...
