Wasn't expecting much for price and other reviews read here: but was pleasantly surprised. Staff pleasant and friendly, hotel felt safe for single older woman, room small but clean and had everything I needed. Hotel is very well-located in bustling Haymarket, next to Capitol Theatre, walking distance to everything. Price is excellent for Sydney, I would stay there again especially... More

Upon first glance the hotel itself is dated, unfortunately inside is just the same. Room was cramped, small, and felt dirty. Only bare basics were provided. If you are a fussy sleeper the bed and pillows are not for you. Staff were in their own world most of the time. Expensive especially when needing onsite parking on top of room... More

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. Staff are rude & unhelpful and would not follow up with requests. Room was small, dirty, especially the walls & carpets. Nowhere to put luggage, one chair in the room for 2 people to sit on. Bathroom was a bit cleaner than actual room. I would recommend the hotel to... More

This hotel is in the budget/basic range but for the price I thought was great value. The hotel definitely needs renovating but the hot water was hot, there was good water pressure. The bed although a double size was comfortable and the linen and towels were good quality. The bathroom was a great size. It even had a bath. I... More

Whilst the location of this hotel is close to Chinatown and Darling Harbour, I really feel that this hotel needs a complete overhaul. Not just furniture and amenities but staff attitude as well. The rooms are very small and not clean. My view was overlooking the shop fronts which are under the hotel. There was hair in the bathroom and... More

Stayed there early May 2015 for 3 nights close to public transport rooms a little small very clean & tidy Buffet breakfast could have had more variety if you choose to have a late breakfast say from 8.30 it could have been hotter and topped up more often otherwise good value accommodation.Staff excellent very polite.

On our arrival there was just one staff member working at the desk so we had to wait. It was a small entry area and very basic. We were given our key and took the lift up to our room. No porters or anyone asking to help you. The room was small and basic but I must say clean and... More

Location and access to public transportation is total plus point for this small yet cosy hotel. Room maybe small but enough to keep us (me, mom and 2 kids) happy and comfortable. Thai town and China town was at our door step. Darling Harbour just 10mins walk away. The description of these plus points are very accurate for the hotel... More

The room was very small, bathroom looked old and not maintained very well. There was mold in between the tiles in the shower and the sink bench looked very old and it was dusty underneath. The bathroom roof was cubes of foam that could be lifted up and removed. The beds were well made and very clean. All the lights... More

I stayed for work and asked if I could extend a night. The man at reception shouted at me. A workmate said he lost several hours sleep the night before dealing with the police over a domestic violence incident in the room next door. Reception quoted me a higher price than an internet booking. Not sure if the convenient location... More
