Guest Reviews

The nightlife scene around The Stanley is a mix of good and bad. While there are some great local restaurants and cafes nearby, there are also some shady individuals around, making some guests feel nervous about walking in the area at night. It's also a bit of a walk to the main tourist attractions, which some found to be a drawback. Additionally, the area between the hotel and city center is not the safest to walk through at night, so it's better to Uber or taxi. The hotel's rooftop bar is great but on the expensive side compared to other cool places in the city. On the downside, the hotel should amend its bar times advertised, as cocktails were rarely made after the said time, which was very frustrating for some guests. The busy bar across the street also had loud music blaring till 5am on Saturday nights, which can be a bother for those staying in the rooms nearby. Overall, the hotel's nightlife scene may not be ideal for some, but guests can still find good bars and bakeries a short stroll away.
