Overall staff were very friendly and helpful. Walls are a bit thin, was woken a few times in middle of night/morning by guests talking outside our room. Cleaners missed a few areas a couple of times during our visit including not taking rubbish placed beside bin. Great location, will recommend to friends and family.

A very good hotel with helpful staff. Although It is a 30 min + walk to the Opera House and harbour bridge area, several buses including the 333 all stop close to the hotel allowing easy access to the main city centre. There is also a free bus no 555 which runs from the central station to Circular Quay, it... More

Not quite sure what would make this hotel four star. Room was small, facilities were average. Room service was prompt however, and the nachos were divine! Staff were friendly enough but I wouldn't stay here again as it was overpriced for what was provided.

Our room was very clean and fresh, unfortunately not so with the bed cover. We also had one coffee cup with a massive crack in it, running from the lip down and across the bottom, it was so big and noticeable I'm sure it would have leaked. We left it with a large print note asking for a new cup... More

Staff we're all very nice, we received a free room upgrade. Room service was cheap and fast. Only negative was the cleanliness, parts of the room had been missed especially under things or behind the tv and bedside tables, otherwise everything was perfect

This hotel offers Surry Hills location, and good value compared to other nearby hotels especially given that they offer two double beds in a room rather than singles. Has good toiletries range but the room definitely needs a new sliding shower door - jiggling the door to close is not acceptable in any hotel.

This hotel, whilst being old and reasonably small rooms, they are comfortable, with modern decor. Our room was on the 10th floor with a balcony and a view of the Opera House. The room was clean and the service was efficient. The first night we had a dripping air con, which did not get solved that night, however on telling... More

I stayed here once before and liked the hotel and its location. Not so overly expensive and access is reasonable. Stayed this time with 2 little ones and again, good service, clean and friendly staff.
