One night stayed and one night too many! The foyer smells off old cigaratte smoke (must be embedded in the old worn carpet and tired paint.

Thank you for taking the time to review our apartments. I am sorry to see you didn’t enjoy your stay. As our apartments are all non-smoking (except on the balconies) I am unable to see how the foyer smelt like cigarette smoke as the foyer has always been non-smoking.

Def looks better on the web than in real life. Good location but this place is in need of a major refurb. Everything looks (and smells!) dated. Arrived to find pillows spread all over the bedroom floor (not a pillow cases in sight), black hair in the bath tub, toilet seats up and mouldy grout all over the bathroom. On... More

I’m sorry you didn’t have a good experience staying with us. I have spoken to housekeeping about the pillow and hair situation and I do apologise for this. Both myself and the housekeeper can’t explain how the situation happened, though new procedures are now in place that this will never happen again. I have been up to the room you... More

The apartments are ideally located walking distance from most places of interest and close to the cbd. However the noise of traffic passing by continues both day and night so don't forget your ear plugs. Enjoyed Sydney and would certainly return.

We stayed in an executive apartment on the fourth floor in March this year. Our stay was comfortable and met our expectations. There is no parking available at this hotel, however, the hotel has an agreement with a nearby parking lot which makes it a bit cheaper, just be sure to park in the correct one. Also, the stairs in... More

A little disappointed our apartment was supposed to be a two queen bed room. What we got was one queen bed and a foldup bed. There only one toilet at the top of a 13 stair climb. The room is run down and appliances are dated. Parking is a block away and there is nowhere to park and unload. The... More

The location is ideal. The kitchen is so well appointed & great for families. Those two facts were why we chose this hotel. However I would not recommend this place or revisit. The total disappointment was the terrible condition of the room. The cleaning staff only work mornings and we discovered late in the afternoon that our bathroom was filthy.... More
