Both rooms were pleasant and clean. Excellent location close to central Railway and to eateries in Redfern. Close to parks too. The staff were wonderful and ensured we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay there again.

Excellent location 5 min walk to central station. Very clean rooms. Staff were very friendly and went above and beyond expectations. There is a woolies just down the road and a 10min taxi ride to the airport. We will be staying here again

Some of the staff really let the side down here. Was my second stay and will be my last. Terrible place to stay with friends, as no socialising is permitted onsite after dark. We aren't talking loud music and yelling here - it was quiet conversation with a bit of laughter. Wont recommend to anyone I know.

Be aware there are no lifts and if you struggle with stairs this could be an issue - ask for a downstairs room, also if you arrive late the checkin is quite basic and you won't get help with luggage. The rooms are as they appear in the pictures although some of the cabinets are quite tired, beds are large... More

The location was very good for us and overall the accommodation was good value compared to Sydney prices generally. A lift would be good, the stairs could be a problem for some as could the shower/bath. Both were fine for us.

Nice room, clean; a little bit cramped for 4 adults in the family room but for one night it's perfect. Please remember though there are only stairs so people who need access or if you had heaps of bags like us it can be a pain, but the reception staff helped us carry it all the way up which was...

Based on our experience, the best thing about this hotel is the service of one of its staff. She's very friendly and helpful. I would recommend the hotel to award her as the best employee. Two thumbs up for her. Her name is Virginia if I'm not mistaken. Other than her service, actually this hotel is just average. The location... More

Everything was great. Very happy with this place. Just the shower pressure was way too low, water was hardly hitting me the pressure was so low, other than that everything was exceptional for what you pay!

This is my thrid stay at this hotel as the location is great, it is good value for money and the staff are very helpful. The kitchenette is handy as well as having a pub across the road for evening meals which are priced well.

We were looking for a short stay that was close to Redfern Oval that would be clean and comfortable but would not have the expensive city prices. This hotel is in an excellent location,is close to Central Railway station, bars, restaurants, and cafes. We had a King room and would highly recommend it and will definitely stay there again.
