This hotel is located in Potts Point, close to Kings Cross' nightlife but I did not experience any excessive noise from outside. It is quite easy to reach by taxi, Uber, or public transport. The rooms are very basic, but the beds are comfortable enough for a good night sleep. Breakfast, when purchased at the front desk, was only $13... More

First of all this hotel was amazingly cheap which is why I booked in the first place. The location is great as it is on a long street full of shops, cafés, restaurants, bars and the train station kings cross. I was staying in Sydney alone for 2 nights and this hotel was perfect for what I needed, although the... More

I stayed here a few times between January and April I used to live on Macleay St so can tell you the location is excellent The lobby is nice and fine and has comfy sofas etc The building is quite old and it is fair to describe it as a maze. I believe it is two buildings combined into one... More

Rude and unhelpful staff at the front desk. I witnessed an all out altercation between the manager and a guest who was trying to get some assistance. The manager shouted and was argumentative. I am unsure what it was about, but the manager behind the desk seemed pretty comfortable about making a scene for us paying guests to bear witness... More

I'm not one to normally travel anywhere in Australia as much anymore considering how expensive it is for so far less compared to travelling abroad to south east Asia. I was appalled at how abrupt and rude some of the hotel receptionist were in this place. One day my fianceé and I approached the desk and politely asked if our... More

Single room with ensuite was clean, basic and, although very small, included good in-room facilities (fridge, kettle, aircon, TV). Room was secure- I was comfortable staying there alone. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Cheap, no frills accomodation. Perfect to lock up my luggage during the day, and sleep at night.

Apart from great location and good price this place is in serious need of renovation. The hall smells of smoke and carpet doesn't look clean. The rooms are clean and beds okeish but would not recommend it if not for the location. During our stay fire alarm went off and I can confirm fire doors worked 😋. Gladly it was... More

You have to view this place as you get what you pay for or you will be disappointed The rooms & cafeteria are in a desperate need of some renovations. However the bed was comfortable & the buffet breakfast was although more limited in variety than other buffet breakfasts( ie novotel) was still fresh and satisfying. Close to some great... More
