I booked this hotel as a solo traveller as it was budget priced - for Sydney standards. My main requirements were catered for - I had a big comfortable bed with clean linen. A nice big tv to watch and towels renewed every day in a clean bathroom. However, it was cramped conditions with a pokey little window allowing little... More

555 free shuttle just around the corner. Stayed for 2 nights (Saturday and Sunday). Our room on the 2nd Floor, a bit noisy, but ok. Staff quite friendly and helpful. Room size is good. Great location.

Just had the one night at the City Lodge. It's in a great location, next to Wynyard station, George Street, Circular Quay. Staff were friendly. We were on the 4th floor and did think about elderly people arriving with large pieces of luggage and how they would manage the stairs. The hotel doesn't appear to have anyone there who would/could... More

Stayed for last night in oz before returning to UK. Central location close to all attractions but unfortunately noisy as was a Saturday night with a club opposite. Room was clean and maybe would have been quieter if not overlooking the street. Was okay for 1 night only. Also no lift and located up 2 flights of stairs to reception.... More

I booked this hotel as I wanted somewhere central for a few nights. It was perfectly positioned for this and I was easily able to walk to most of the main attractions. It is also only a few minutes walk from a metro station which is two stops from Central Station where you can get a train to almost anywhere.... More

Got to my room. Tv had no channels. Climbed down stairs told to go back and they would come. 10 mins l8r phoned to say not coming. Not good enough. They really need to provide the services they promised or change your rooms. Avoid avoid avoid.

However the other parts concerning the hotel is not that perfect. I´ve stayed here 2 times before and will continue to do so untill cheaper alternatives in the same category will emerge. The first time I stayed we got a quite good room (but noicy due to the nearby stairs), clean, big and nice. The next time it was small,... More

Firstly, the location of this hotel is excellent. You are within a very comfortable walk to buses, trains, the harbour, the Rocks and the Opera House. It is by far the cheapest accommodation you will find in this area ... and for good reason. Our holiday to Sydney was fantastic however where we stayed could certainly have destroyed our positive...

Room was small but as we were out and about most of the time this was ok. Walking distance to everything which was really convenient. We wanted a night in one night but the TV wasn't working so that was a shame. The fire alarms were very sensitive even to the steam from the shower and we had to put... More
