    Extra friendly staff and a quiet relaxing place to stay.

    A little dusty behind furniture and bed.

    Woke up with two bedbug bites. room 809. Was painful for a week. That was when I eventually fell asleep after 2 or 3am because powerful fan ducting is just behind walls 1 inch from your head. Like trying to sleep on a plane next to the engines. Covid has seen dramatic price crash and brought all the homeless off the street into these beds. All-night smokers in the central atrium and stoned feral people roaming the lifts and corridors sometimes banging on the walls and doors in their meth fuelled rampage. Previously I stayed here on and off because it was central and clean and usually good value for money but has been all strike outs for last few months.

    Fire alarms going off due to the aforementioned ferals smoking drugs in room.

    Had an early train in the morning - the reception staff offered a wake up call that came on time. Always stay at the Great Southern - proximity to the services I need, in China Town ao I get my fix of egg custard tarts!!!

    All was great

    The facilities was so complete.

    The blanket was so thin and not warm enough for winter time.
