We stayed here for one night as we went to the Lion King. This hotel is really good, you just have to have realistic expectations. Location- We paid $99 for one night stay in queen room breakfast and late check out inclusive. This hotel is right in the thick of the city 2 minutes from China Town and Paddy's markets,... More

Next door to the Capital Theatre. Walking distance to Darling Harbour. Breakfast is ok. Secure parking next door at $26 a night for hotel guests. Cons - staff average as... More

This is no fancy hotel but for the price and the location, I think it's good value for money. The rooms are a little dated but have everything you need: tea/coffee making facilities, bar fridge, hair dryer, tv, temperature controlled aircon and comfy beds. Our room had no view to speak of - just a view across the tiny central... More

Friendly reception staff, an excellent location, and clean and simple. The rooms are smallish, and so are the bathrooms (hot water is excellent), but I had a little balcony (room 507) that looked over the city which was nice. On level 5 the noise isn't bad at all either. It's not the Ritz, but it's clean and perfectly fine. I... More

Horrible Room for a rediculous price. Not stipulated parking costs extra. Would never recommend to anyone. Great location yes but would rather spend the extra money and get a better hotel. Very basic rooms. Small showers. Horrible Stay

Good location right next to electric rail and within walking distance to the Opera House, Darling Harbour, and the ferry terminal. Rooms were dated, but clean. Breakfast was good. Only 1 elevator, which was a definite downside, as there were no stairs you could walk up (only down). Internet is wired and very expensive and rooms are small. Overall ok... More

We booked this hotel based on it's location and price, being handy to Central Station (caught train from Wollongong) and the few minutes walk into Chinatown. We were allocated a quiet room away from the main street which was really appreciated. There was only one pillow allocated for each guest but on request another one each was supplied. Staff were...

Very central to all facilities including transport. Room good but basic as expected. Staff very helpful. Book-in and book-out process excellent. House-keeping excellent. Recommended for budget minded people.

Not good value for money. Very old and tired, uncomfortable bed and pillows. Bathroom very small. Not worth the trouble. Good location however. Right next to the Capitol Theatre, short walk to china town and the markets.
