One of the worst stays I had in Sydney. The hotel room was very small, the large window was frosted and the small one looked on to small deck and dirty ally. The room had no sound proofing all night we were kept awake by pigeons on window still and other guest coming and going. The room was directly off... More

The upside is the location, just off the main strip and a short walk to the harbour bridge and all amenities. There is also a shared kitchen with microwave and oven if you are needing to do your own cooking. Although warned that there was no lift in the building, dragging a heavy suitcase up 6 sets of stairs was... More

Really should have read reviews BEFORE booking. Was after a cheap city stay for the long weekend, we got it alright but at the cost of having to put our toilet paper in the bin instead of flushing it down the toilet where surely in this day in age, in Sydney Australia, i needn't have worried about. I never knew... More

We stayed in what is advertised as a family room, tiny with no where to put bags. The main bed is pushed up against wall so you will have to climb over your partner to get out of bed. Beds very uncomfortable and hard. The family room is located on the fourth floor , I was advised when booking that... More

I didn't expect the best as the price was cheap. They did explain prior to booking that there was no lift to the 4th floor apartment which I did question however I accepted this. On arrival I signed a piece of paper stating I would not put toilet paper in the toilet and would use the bin beside the toilet... More

Besides all, yes All the reviews with one star here, I have to add beetles, huge beetles in the room. It's now 1:25 am, I'm calling the emergency number and no one picks the phone. There is no staff in the building so... I'm leaving to my own.
