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.

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.

I stayed in this hotel for four nights. There is direct access from Sydney domestic or international airport to reach this hotel. People can take Airport train from airport and get off at Wynyard station. From Wynyard station exit, cross the George Street exit. Hunter Street is in front of this street. This hotel is right side of the Hunter... More

From the moment we checked in both myself and my friend were disgusted. We weren't expecting a 5 star experience yet we were expecting a clean and tidy room with descent service.

We stayed here in December and walked out after the 1st night. The place was filthy. The room had a smashed window and plastic was over the hole. The bathroom was full of hair and grime. The dust was so bad my daughter had an allergy attack. Plug sockets were hanging off the wall and the spare bedding was shoved... More
