We stayed here with a group of five adults and four teenagers in three rooms. The bedding configuration worked well and suited our needs for our five night stay while attending a conference out at Olympic Park. All dealings with the staff both before and during our stay were also really good. On arrival, I wasn't very impressed with our... More

I was staying at the place nearl every week from March to June. Staff were great. The rooms were good and some have balconies so you can watch the world go by. Value for money and very close to the city ( 10 minute walk). There is a supermarket 5 minutes away and a hotel across the road which is... More

I booked in to this hotel because it is 10 minutes walk from a conference I was attending. Additionally, as someone with food allergies, the kitchenette was incredibly helpful to me. Almost everything about the hotel was as expected: the staff were friendly, the room was nice, if a little dated, and the shower was excellent. Unfortunately, however, the reviews... More

Stayed 3 nights for the Netball World Cup. The location was ideal - just a short walk to Central Station. The room was very comfortable and clean. Having the kitchenette was very practical. Would definitely come again and recommend. I loved the card with tomorrow's weather on the bed. Nice touch.

I don't know the area well but for our short trip it ticked all the boxes of what we needed. Close walk from the railway station and to the surrounding bars and restaurants. Great staff topped it off.

Very convenient to railway stations and cafe, bakery, pub and Woolworths. Room was comfortable and clean. Steps are a pain with heavy bags and the shower is awkward to get in and out of. Overall it was a good stay for us.

Awkward location. Sort of close to Central, Redfern, Surry Hills and the Unis if you don't mind a walk. Clean and well maintained. Smallish bathroom. Very comfortable bed. Kitchenette a bonus for longer stays.
