It is a 3-min walking distance to the Kirribilli wharf stn, which is just 1 stop away to Circular Quay where you can just walk for about 5mins to reach Sydney Opera House. An opportunity to cross the Harbour Bridge on your ferry ride, and if you decide to take your breakfast at the garden, you can see the tip... More

We stayed here mid-July for 3 nights in a twin room & I must say that I made the right choice. Our room was in the ground level near the gate & the interior is really nice--like those in an expensive hotel. The bed is comfy with side lamps, bedside table & chair, wardrobe with hangers, fridge, kettle with cups... More

No lift and lots of stairs. Tiny, tiny rooms with little or no views. Recommendations: Request a ground floor room so you don't have to haul luggage up too many... More

Dear sross2au, I would firstly like to sincerely apologise for your lack of hot water. That morning I immediately called the plumber and the problem was fixed within a day. It was a faulty valve that caused a lack of pressure and was challenging to find. I am sorry about the response from the front desk I will definitely talk... More

This is a great place to stop with modern, clean bedrooms, fast WIFI and a great cooked breakfast offered for just $80 a night, which for Sydney is great value. One of the staff members also went above and beyond to help us during our stay, and if you don't mind sharing a bathroom with others it is a great... More

The room was very basic, but the staff were very friendly and helpful. It is situated in the middle of a quiet, tree lined street within walking distance of restaurants and bars. Walking around was a pleasant experience as the roads were nice and quiet. Will be booking a room there for when I return. If you just want a... More

Just one ferry stop from the Quay at Kirribilli, a short 10 minute walk to the Kirribilli shopping centre and a further 10 minutes to Milson's Point. My friends and I found this well appointed home away from home to be great value for money. We had single or twin rooms and shared the unisex bathroom at the end of... More
