Location & contact
Nice hotel, decent rooms and a nice position slightly up the hill and out of the hustle and bustle of the CBD. But the hotel restaurant is very expensive and seems to be focused on fancy plates of foams and gels, no sign of a classic hotel meal anywhere to be found. If you stay here then be prepared to have to go out for dinner.
Very luxurious room with comfortable bed and great shower. Unfortunately it was a bit tight for space to be able to open anything other than small cases. Disappointingly, the view was out the side at the end of the pool area. Nevertheless for a hotel very close to vibrant Cuba Street, it was a quiet room. We loved the chocolate hour and also had a good meal in the restaurant one evening.
From the moment i walked in the first impressions were promising, but it when down hill from there. Literally. I was assigned room down the hill on level 2. This is 450$ room!!! per night. They gave me the key and went to my room. The Room had only 2 single beds. The room smelt musty, like an old budget hotel. The Air Conditioning did not work, I tried several times. I called to get it fixed. Someone came, but they could not fix it either. The Lighting Masterswitch does not work well with the bedside lighting. Very confusing when trying to turn the bedside lamp on and off when in bed. So they cant even get their lighting system worked out. I managed to get sleep in what was at least a reasonably comfortable bed, be it much smaller than i anticipated for a 5 Star $450 night hotel. But the Story continues. I decided sadly to partake of Breakfast the next morning. I went down to the Restaurant. The food looked as though it had been sitting out for an unacceptable amount of time. All Dishes on the Buffet where luke warm at best. I tried the eggs, but then decided to ask the Chef if he could prepare a poached egg. - Please remember, this is a 5 STAR hotel - I was asking for a poached egg. The chef said - Sorry, i cannot do a poached egg. I have no Vinegar. I asked please cook it in water - he again declined and said he cannot cook the egg without vinegar. Unbelievable in a so called 5 star. So i went without eggs, the eggs on the buffet were powdery and more than likely to cause me to be ill, they were way past their edible stage. I can say however that the Bacon was a highlight, and it became the hero of my breakfast experience. I was really excited and changed my plans based on the marketing of the Chocolate Hour, I thought WOW, Even though Breakfast was unbelievable the Chocolate hour in Movenpick, has to be an experience NOT to be missed. How wrong I was. In this Glorious so called 5 star Chocolate paradise i went to the Chocolate hour - Movenpick should be ashamed of what they delivered. One of the most shameful experience.s Here's what i got - Cheap looking disgusting Chocolate fountain, it looked like cheap chocolate in it. Very Dry Lamington Cakes sliced in Quarters, The melted Chocolate most definitely needed to provide lubrication to avoid chaffing of the oesophagus during digestion, Waffles cut in quarters that were unpalatable with Slices of Banana. When asked how was my stay on departure, I expressed all of the above to the Receptionist. He did his best, but is clearly not trained or skilled to manage complaints. A Manager or Supervisor was sitting in hearing distance, but chose not to engage me. This hotel is really to be avoided. And I do feel very much Cheated, and Ripped off and have to wonder if i have rights of recourse under the Consumer protection act, which i will review and urge others to do the same. For anyone contemplating a booking at this hotel - Quite Simply - DONT DO IT!.
After seeing the Chocolate Hour advertised with photos on the website, we were really excited to book our stay here. We had a few other places to choose from, but Chocolate hour really sold it for us. However we were really really disappointed at the experience... it was nothing like the photos and there was only a few things on offer, such as browning bananas, pretzels, a piece of cake and dark or white chocolate - not the big selection they show and advertise in their photos. We also ordered the Sundae and were again disappointed by what we received, it was missing all the toppings such as the macarons etc and considering the price we spent on it ($28) we were disappointed. When we rang and told them, the staff member simply said they would pass the feedback on and there was no suggestion to remedy this. We were also frustrated that the minibar wasn't in the room and so we needed to ring and order to have things bought to the room and there were only a handful of things to choose from. If we wanted to order room service there was an additional charge to this and everything was well overpriced. The bathroom items supplied were different to what was stated on the website and instead of the beautiful items we thought we were getting, they were cheaper ones. We were disappointed with the valet parking charges, considering there was a full empty carpark at the bottom of the building. The heatpump/aircon was very noisy also. The food in the restaurant however was really delicious, the cacao husk tea on entry was a lovely touch and the robes and slippers were appreciated. The bed was very comfortable and the view was nice. We probably wouldn't stay again due to the reasons first listed and think it was pretty overpriced and very different from the marketing on the website.
This is an old hotel (probably 20+ years) with some cosmetic quick fixes. Very old and super loud air conditioning unit especially at night. Management runs it on the cheap side. The default pillow was the cheapest polyester one you can find in the supermarket and no staff mentions the pillow menu at check in or on their room service app. I hesitated but chose not to call the room service at midnight when I couldn’t sleep. Bathroom amenities is NOT the Amiki NZ one on booking.com’s website. It is the YUNI hotel one made in China and distributed by an Australian company - where is the sustainability considerations with the carbon footprint on shipping? Superior room is smaller then the picture on the hotel website. No free water bottles. Staff was keen to help but appear inexperienced.
