The hotel has a weird basement entry but do not be put off as the rooms are pleasant and comfortable and higher floors have panoramic views. The staff is friendly and helpful and buses close by go all over the city. There are great supermarkets a block away and hundreds of restaurants. Walking around the area is fascinating - the... More

Very dodgy area for older people as we are saw something a bit scary during the afternoon on our way back from our walk to the botanical gardens, but the hotel can't be blamed for that. Presumably because we are members of Accor we were upgraded to a room on the 11th floor with stunning views over the harbour and... More

I would never have chosen to stay here again, after my awful experience last time. However I was travelling with a group and this was the nominated hotel. I paid a small additional amount ($20 per night) for a guaranteed harbour view, and ended up with one of the renovated rooms on the top floors of the hotel, facing the... More

The hotel had a very convenient location to the Kings Cross train station, literally a half a block away from the stop. The room was clean and decently sized but could definitely use some touching up as everything seemed to be a bit older and run down. The area immediately surrounding the hotel is a bit seedy but if you're... More

Hotel is overall very good. Staff are very helpful. The main attraction is the location near by train station to commute around the city.Stayed for one night on Sep 01, 2014. Only minus was the flooring carpet which is due for change in the room stayed in

Its a Mercure so nothing amazing. I have stayed in several in various countries, and I would say they are the top end of 3 star, sometimes touching 4 star. This one is great for being on top of a station. Its location is more Kings Cross than Potts Point, but thats OK. Kings Cross has some good cafes, internet... More

Hi Suzie, Thanks for staying with us and for the review. Internnet in the rooms is expensive but we do have free WiFi in the lobby for half hour each day. If you go over we also give out additional half hour voucher as many people like to check mails in the morning then again in the afternoon. Again, thank... More

Rooms clean, reasonable size, slightly jaded fittings. Receptionists are lovely and very helpful and welcoming. You pay an extra $24 for wifi per 24 hours which is just excessive so I would not stay here again because of that. Breakfast is ok. Location may be an issue for some people. It is right above the Kings Cross Station which is... More

Hi Phil T, Thanks for choosing to stay with us and for taking the time to write a review on the hotel. Sydney in general is a very busy place and you will find a strong Police presence in all key areas of the city that have bars, restaurants and night clubs. This is part of the Policing strategy and... More

$200 a night for a great view I will give them that. However, the bed was by far the hardest and most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on. The pillows were also very flat . Shower curtain had mold.

Hi Brad C, I just want to thank you for staying with us and for also taking the time to review the hotel. Please accept our apologies for the state of the shower curtain, I have spoken with the housekeeping team regarding this as these should be taken out of rooms and bleached to ensure that are mould free.
