I have stayed at this hotel a few times and will continue to do so in the future. The location is convenient, the staff are friendly, and there are some nice little touches such as ear plugs supplied to block out road noise. It is very basic - no lift, no receptionist after 9.00 p.m. and while clean and comfortable,... More

Whilst staying at this hotel for business, I found it to be in a good location, accessible to all major shopping malls, good restaurants, China Town only a 5 minute walk and train & bus terminals handy. The hotel itself a little dark and dingy on the outside, which was a bit intimidating at night. The room was pretty small,... More

I struggle to share all that is positive for CRH. I did stay for two weeks and got to experience it all. Internet Shocking for the first 10 days and with drilling and hammering during the day for the new install of internet, PERFECTION. Easy to use and reasonably fast, great upgrade. Second technical issue, TV, no cable, so very... More

The Hotel was just what was advertised. The room was nice and clean and they even had ear plugs on each bed for the traffic but we didn't need to use them. The secure car parking was great, we left our car there and walked just down the road to Central Station. The free Wifi was also a bonus because... More

I found the hotel was very neat and tidy with great wi-fi. The wi-fi was being updated while we were there. It was a short walk away from central making it easy to get anywhere in the city. We found the rooms clean and tidy - yes the bathroom is a little dated with small hairline cracks in the tiles... More

Pros: Value for price paid, although the hotel was about 10 mins walk to the central station, location still remains great. There are a couple of nice cafes around the redfern area, so breakfast is not an issue. Would like to praise Ms. Virginia the staff receptionist for being friendly and helpful. Stayed in the family quad room, rooms are... More
