This hotel is a little gem in the over-priced, hotel market. The location is excellent, literally a 2 min walk from Kings Cross underground, bus connections and a taxi rank at the door, and a well priced shuttle to the airport. You can walk from here to the city or the botanic gardens and you're within a stones throw of... More

For a budget hotel, the Bayswater is a great option. Close to bus & train transport, cafes, restaurants. Although the room was quite small, facilities were good, decor modern and the bed comfortable.Staff were really friendly and helpful.

If you want a hotel in Potts Point at a reasonable price, this one is perfect. We requested two beds and we got an L-shaped room containing a king size and a double bed situated at the back of the building so we were protected from the noisy revelry of the nightclubs. It's an older style place but that's ok.... More

I'm amazed at some of the reviews. Compared to MANY other hotels the rooms were much less and still decent. If you want a perfect room with many amenities then you will spend $100+ more per night than here. This hotel was fine for the money. Some rooms are noisy this is true. I had a problem with internet and... More

The first night we were put into a room that can only be described and awful, we found a cockroach in the bathroom that was the size of a closet. I asked to be refunded the money I had paid but this was declined, i was then upgraded to a much better room, however, there seems to be a recurring... More

This may have been four star 30 years ago. Its no better than a room in a caravan park at a fraction of the price. In future will be staying at a real hotel and pay for an actual four stars. Before people rate these as four stars they should stay at a four star so they can judge.

Great location for train and food. Car rentals and Australian museum about 10mins walk away. I happened to walk everywhere so i walked all the way to the... More

3 nights at this hotel and was so impressed with the value for the price I paid. The rooms are small as mentioned previously but are very comfortable, well furnished and clean. The guest lounge / kitchen area is a nice area to relax and make a coffee and use the computers available. All the staff are helpful and friendly... More

Definitley like this place. Comfy bed, nice bathroom. Goof room to relax in. Great access to Kings cross station. This made getting around all the public transportation easily. Some cute cafés and bars in the area. Seemed to be some good bit life but we didn't check out too much!
