Arrived at the hotel late at night with missing reservation information, but cute receptionist guy processed our check-in anyway in less than 5 minutes. The receptionist guy seems to never sleep as I have see him there at 6am++ in the morning till 10pm++ at night. On my last night there, left suitcase past 11pm but he was still awake... More

We booked for two nights and liiked the location and the friendly staff. We had rooms high up which was ok although the elevator did not impress us much. The rooms were small but still OK with a view of the street in front of the hotel. Rooms were clean but a bit worn down. WiFi working ok although we... More

We were only staying here for one night before heading off the Cairns early the next morning however it was a great place to stay. Reception is manned 24 hours so it didn't matter that we arrived late and left at 3am, there was always someone there to help. The room was nice and clean, basic but it had everything... More

Interesting hotel, where to start, neat, clean, dark, comfortable, small room. the rooms on ground floor have no phone reception, luckily they have wifi, and they did mention this to me when I checked in. Perfect place to stay if you want a night out - directly opposite popular night clubs (world bar). Amazing shower, huge rain style shower head,... More

The staff were lovely and friendly and the rooms were clean. this hotel is noisy, has no sound proofing at all and the rooms are outdated. Creaky floor boards in the room and hallways left us feeling like we weren't alone. The bed was comfortable, but listening to people outside in the hall all night had us packing up and... More

Many people think King's Cross is a bad area filled with a sleazy nightlife. We too, had that impression. But honestly, it is a unique potpourri of culture and an array of interesting people, cafes, bars and restaurants. It is a place 'to visit' if you are a tourist. Nothing much in the day but in the night, the area... More

Got to stay here as world cup cricket had come to Sydney. Small (don't swing the cat) and no sunlight (view of the ac unit). Upside is it close to just about anything you want. Had a rental car so be prepared for a hike to car park Head west on Bayswater, left to great restaurants and east to the... More

This hotel and room was a good mix of value, comfort and location. Stayed on 4th floor which was fairly quiet despite being at the front of the hotel. The bed was comfortable and the room was a good size (got a suite though, a double room would have been frustratingly small). One thing which was a niggling feature was... More

Room was tired, the windows you wouldn't want to open because your room would get hot and noisy from all the air conditioning exhaust, that and the fact that you're looking onto another building wall. There was no access to the room without a lift at the time.

I stayed here with my sister last week. We purchased a King Deluxe room for a decent price. Room was small but clean, the only cons were that the floor was creaky and the window buckled in the wind. Other than that our stay was pleasant. The King bed was comfortable and really roomy. Staff allowed us entry into the... More
