Great and very spacious room, bathroom is a bit dated, great views out over the Sydney skyline, very convenient location, right above Kings Cross Station. Hotel Staff is friendly, Not as noisy as you might think given the location. Great night stay

This was a fairly nice hotel. The room was spacious and nicely decorated, the view of the harbour was nice, staff were helpful and friendly, and it was clean. My only moan is the fact that somebody came into our room when we went out for dinner and swapped our queen size bed for two single beds pushed together. They... More

This hotel is a little dated and it shows in things like the bathroom decor, wallpaper bubbles in passages and other visible aspects. Rooms were adequate; tidy, clean and all you need. There is parking on-site. Proximity to Kings Cross nightlife will be a plus for many. The rooms were well sound-proofed and minimal traffic noise. Staff are very good... More

If you've ever travelled a reasonable amount, you begin to understand that certain hotels/accommodation bring out the best in a destination. A hotel may even be so outstanding that it becomes a destination in itself. For years, I stayed across the road at the Holiday Inn, Potts Point. (I don't get a choice of accommodation, my company dictates.) Sydney to... More

Dated room, poor furnishing, poor service, lobby was a mixture of retro and clinical, technology (TV) was very dated, walls are paper thin and my partner and I were kept awake by the sounds of people yelling in the hallway. There was a large amount of outside noise coming in. Glad I didn't pay over $200 for the room, seems... More

Right in the cross, so it's noisy, rooms are also dated. Parking is available but it's very tight. But staff outstanding, very friendly. Location is close to city, rail station and nightlife. A bit old school, but if your having a night out, need to be near the city, and can handle some nightlife noise its a great choice. Would... More

Kings Cross is one of the nightspots in Sydney. There are lots of strip clubs, bars, pubs and eateries as well as upscale restaurants and fancy shops. During the day the area is a an expensive residential area. The hotel is only 20 minute walk to pitt street mall, domain and about 25 to opera house. Pros: location recently refurbished... More
