Given the location and space offered, it is a nice place to stay as it is not too expensive and spacious enough for a family of four. Walking distance to Central Railway station and near to places for food.

Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are small but offer great value if you are just looking for a short stay. A fair amount of traffic noise but thats what you get for staying in such a central location. Overall good value.

The location of this hotel is fabulous. A nice walk to the attractions of the city and the train station is very close by if you don't feel like walking everywhere. The rooms could use a bit of a makeover but are value for money. The walls are not at all sound proofed so I was woken up every time... More

Good value for money, perfect for family, close to some of Sydney's family's attractions (e.g., Darling Harbour, China Town) and public transports (inner and inter city trains and buses). We stayed there for 2 nights and were very satisfied with the hotel and staff. Recommended for a family looking for a short stay in Sydney.

Central location with plenty of options available for eating out. Was a little on the cosy side for a family of 4 but we only stayed for 2 nights as a stop over so not too bad. Staff were excellent and room was relatively clean.

For a quick weekend in the city when you don't need the hotel for more than a place to sleep, shower and one that is fairly centrally located this one is fine. The staff are friendly and accommodating.
