    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
    Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
    such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your

    How good are the blinds at blocking out the light in the Premier Spa Suite? From the pictures there seems to be a big gap at the sides.

    not so great actually. it's less the gap and more the actual material of the blinds. that was no issue for us but may be if you're after a serious sleep in.
