Good location close to Central Station. Late check-in convenient. No soap was provided in the bathroom which was extremely inconvenient! Rooms are small and showing their age. Breakfast was good value.

for the location the $180 room was relatively cheap, ok the place is dated & could with a huge makeover, however I'm sure you would then be paying in excess of $300 a night. Our bed was firm & comfortable, our room clean, we had a fridge, tv & phone a serviceable bathroom, air conditioning, a parking station next to... More

The hotel is 2 doors from the Capital Theatre and it was great for us as we had a show. We walked in and had no problems, the room was clean and the bed comfortable. Our problem began when my husband went to put the air conditioner on-it worked BUT when we walked into the bathroom we could smell cigarette... More

The hotel is in a good location. Close to China town, paddys markets and darling harbour. Rooms very small and showing there age. Fire alarm went off at 2:30 in the morning only on level 2. Weird. And then elevator was broken. Breakfast not that great.

We spent 278 australia dollars per day for a triple bedroom, and we stayed for 4 nights here. When we arrived, the only elevator was out of order, so every one had to wait for the hotel staff to take you to the fire escape to take a service elevator every time you got up. If you live above level2,you... More

Great location, close to Chinatown, Thai town and virtually on George Street so bus transport is very close, trams nearby and trains a short walk. Rooms starting to show their vintage, parking expensive and lift access very ordinary (actually the lift kept breaking down so we had to carry our luggage down from the top floor using the fire stairs)...

Next door to Capitol Theatre, in Thai Town, around the corner from China town, light rail and George street, bus stop just on George street, so easy to get around. Very helpful staff. Rooms good size, a little worn but beds clean and comfy, bathroom clean. Good price for such a good location. No wifi, restaurant only served breakfast, no... More

Great location as it is near the tram/train station so easy to go around the city. I think the price is very reasonable, it is not a five star luxury hotel so be realistic with your expectation. Stayed in this hotel for 4 days and it provided all we need, though it would be better if they can offer free... More

Only stayed one night on a quick stopover in Sydney. Read all the reviews and agree that you get what you pay for, suited us fine. Cheapest I could find for three adults near Chinatown and was OK. Room was a little musty smelling and aircon was not the best, but the location was great to go out and grab... More
