This is a wonderful hotel in a great location. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are smallish, but the bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is quite nice. They also have a membership at the gym around the corner, which is very nice and convenient. I would highly recommend this hotel. The only issue I had was that... More

Recently visited the Bayswater Sydney for a one night stay with my friends! It's close to all the good bars and clubs! Although close to the action of kings cross the room was very quiet and met all our needs! The room was small but was kept very clean the reception staff were very friendly also

Our room was a standard king, and it didn't have a view or was a particularly large room, but it was fine for us as we weren't going to be spending too much time there anyway. The bathroom was small but clean and the bed was very comfortable. I would recommend a deluxe king room for those who plan on... More

I stayed in this hotel recently for 4 nights. I have stayed in other "Sydney Lodges" premises and I have always found them good value considering the sky high cost of Sydney hotels. I got a good internet deal and so the price per night was even more competitive than the hotel's website. The staff were lovely, friendly yet not... More

We have stayed here before and came back for another short stay, making it our base and catching public transport or walking wherever we wanted to go. It is only a very short walk to the train station, nice daytime walks close by, and across the road from a great bakery that seems to never close. Yes the bathroom is... More

My mom always said that you can see how clean a house is by checking the restroom. Our restroom was small, had bad ventilation, the toilet seat was loose, and the rubber on the bottom of the glass shower was covered in some black thing that resembled mold. I guess the rubber was just rotten, but in any case, I... More

For starters is very well located, is a block and a half from King's Cross Train Station, and you have all line buses in King`s Cross Street. You will easilly find a great variety of places to buy dinner, or pubs to go and have dinner. The service is really good, always helpful and friendly, and willing to help. You... More

Our cruise ship arrived early in Sydney, so we were at the hotel by 9:30 a.m. All we had to do was check in and wait for an hour in a cozy area with snacks, magazines, and computers for catching up on our email, and then our room was ready to move in! On our last day in Sydney we... More

The best part of the hotel is the price. The hotel was very cheap compared to the rest of the hotel options, but to be honest I wish I paid a little bit more to have a better location. You are not in the heart of Sydney, it is located in Kings Cross and all touristy things we did were... More

Staying in Kings Cross

Neighborhood Profile
Kings Cross
Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The Cross," Sydney's red light district. These new rules have encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the area, as well as organic markets on Saturdays. The area's nightclubs are still popular with youngsters, however, who will dance to the early morning hours on weekend nights. There are plenty of artifacts from Kings Cross' shady past when gangsters and liquor houses owned the place. Today, one can still find a variety of adult entertainment venues in this evolving area.
