We enjoyed our 3 night stay at this hotel because it is so well located. You can take a nice, leisurely stroll to Darling Harbor, it is a bus ride away from Circular Quay and Sydney Opera house. Its 4 blocks away from Victoria Building for some nice high-end shopping. Its also a couple of blocks away from Coles supermarket,... More

Comfortable rooms for a short stay. Hop on the free bus down to circular quay and opera house. Out the back door is Chinatown. Nice walk to darling harbour. Reasonable price for what you get. Outside is noisy. But would stay again.

Stayed 7 nights in Jan 2015. We chose this hotel because we wanted limited kitchen facilities. The room and bathroom were both of a good size but I was disappointed to find very limited storage for clothes which meant I lived out of the suitcase for a week. We weren't able to access the room until 2pm. Wifi was only... More

Stayed here recently for 1 night. There was a group of 11, so we booked 3 x 2 bedroom apartments. Rooms were spacious and well equipped with kitchenette, lounge/dining area, air-conditioning & beds were comfortable. I was in a room facing George St and there was a lot of street noise until the early hours of the morning, so if... More

Business trip booked by associate - I was concerned after reading some of the TA reviews. Certainly some good points, but enough bad for me not to return. After reading reviews, I emailed the hotel to gain a high floor and gluten free for breakfast. On arriving at 10pm, they didn't have my email ( because their website had the... More

This accommodation was a two night stay in January that was booked via Flight Centre in Frankston. The travel agent neglected to follow up with the stipulation that our second bedroom must have two single beds (for two teenage children). We arrived after 9pm and were presented with the last available two bedroom standard apartment with two queen beds. The... More

The location is good but the hotel is very dated and not in great shape. The rooms look tired but are clean and a good size. We arrived before check out but there was no flexibility to getting access before the check in time. We stayed for a week and the big downside was the noise inside and outside the... More
