As per other reviews, yes this hotel room is in what seems a dilapidated building. The entrance does not make you feel comfortable and the front door was constantly left open which made us feel unsafe. There is no reception, this is not a hotel. It is a room within an apartment building. Positives: The room, a standard room, was... More

FNQ now UHUB is located within Sunshine towers hotel which from the outside looks a little dated and run down . But the apartment itself was lovely and very tastefully put together by the guys.

I stayed at Uhub for five nights. It was great. Clean, comfortable and well equipped. I was greeted on arrival by Michael and made to feel welcome, then everything went just as it was supposed to. The bed was very comfortable, it was quiet, good facilities, liked the fact that I could just use my own toiletries - the basic... More

this is a very funky hotel disigned to give the guest (myself) serveral options when making a reservation like basics or premium rooms. Go the basics as it includes all the lush fittings with exception to minibar items and amenities.

We stayed in a nice modern room which was clean, well presented and had a great view. Yes the building is a little on the old side but this didn't detract from our stay. We booked a mystery deal room and ended up on the 3rd floor over looking the pool and for the price it was certainly well worth... More

The room was clean and comfortable, just as advertised. Don't expect the whole building to be the hotel, it seems that fnq have several rooms in the building. Michael met me and was very pleasant, explained everything well. Although its an odd little setup, it did the job quite well.

Don't judge the apartments by the building! The room was very very clean! Newly renovated including brand new aircon. The balcony overlooks the pool of which doesn't appear too appealing but the pool is well looked after and exceptionally clean. Because the office isn't where the apartments are you need to let Michael know a day before when you'll be... More

Me & my partner stayed here in July 2012 for 4 nights. Upon arriving (at 4am) we looked up from the pavement to see a run down scruffy looking high rise building.
