It was the perfect location for us since there is a nearby hop on hop off bus stop and it's close to the train station as well. Room is quite small but clean, staff was pleasant too. It was noisy outside, yes, but it is was expected since this hotel is located in the city and surrounded by bars, restaurants... More

Nice and clean room. Great location with lots of clubs and bars around. Close to the train station and pretty close to the city. Walking to the city would take awhile, but it is doable. The room is small, but it fits 2 people comfortable. They provide wifi for your stay which is a plus. Some people say that it... More

No complaints: great service, perfect location, clean, friendly, convenient. Feel free to ignore any reviews complaining about noise - it's Kings Cross, fer crissakes! - and be grateful for the awesome location and cleanliness of the hotel and friendliness of the staff. Besides, to be perfectly honest, I've stayed twice and have found the noise levels completely acceptable. So, it's... More

You may as well save yourself 150 dollars and fend for youself on the streets of Kings Cross for the night, as that is probably more pleasurable than the banging your head consantly against the bed frame in frustration over trying to sleep at this hotel. Even the use of earplugs and a pillow over the head couldnt block out... More

KIngs Cross has a reputation for being a bit sleazy but is really just a lively energetic area where many small restaurants and diners abound, as do pokies and sex shops. It is very central for exploring Sydney. The hotel is clean and well presented. Our room 203 faced the street but was not too noisy. The bed was comfortable... More

The service was ok. At first we were assigned to room 107 which was awful as the room is located between the laundry room, a public restroom and the street so the first night was horrible. We requested a room change and we were moved to room 304 which was smaller and apparently the home of a cockroach. After checkout... More
