This apartment hotel is very central to the 2 central main attractions in Sydney. 10 min. walk from harbor bridge and 20 min from the Opera building. There are also supermarket and restaurants nearby in the city center also only few min. walk away from the apartment. The apartment complex is lying between 2 busy roads and a highway above... More

We recently returned to this hotel after enjoying its very good location and great value three years ago. Again, we were not disappointed! Our very spacious one bedroom apartment was immaculate and had obviously had a recent refurbishment. Despite reviews from previous contributors we were not bothered by any noise coming from Kent Street (we must have been on the... More

On arrival we were wowed by the beautiful and immaculate apartment we had and were happy with location to Darling Harbour and Circular Quay among other things. Unfortunately the freeway passes over the establishment so you have no natural sunlight and noise from the Kent Road and constant works around the area can be heard. I can't disagree with the...

Had an opportunity to stay at this hotel for 3 nights in Sydney during my training course in November 2013. The hotel was okay in term of location, services, room quality. However, there was a lot of noise at night when the road workers worked on the Wynyard Walk project. It was very noisy from 8pm until 5am in the... More

The apartment was dirty (leftover rice in the cupboards) and obviously not cleaned very well. No water pressure, and very noisy. The hotel has the Harbour freeway overhead, the sounds from cars driving along Kent Street would echo back off the concrete freeway surface into the windows. Construction was also loud. It started at 830PM and went to 5AM every... More

The property is showing significant signs of wear and needs to be rennovated. It is very dark inside and my 2 rooms had minimal windows and smelt of condensation. Initially I had a south facing room, 313 from memory, for 2 nights. I had to be moved as road works on the Kent Street intersection commenced at 8:30pm and concluded... More

We were staying here for ~3 weeks (left few days before Christmas). The price wasn't as cheap as the previous reviewer redcar quoted but was given a good offer (on average $135/night) for the period that we were staying. I was debating if I should just go with travelodge which was quoting us $140 per night for a guaranteed good... More

It looks a bit grim from the outside and there is only a very small reception area inside. However once we opened the door to our 1 bedroom apartment 410 we were happy. It was light, spacious and modern and had everything we needed. As we were coming to Sydney from the Uk for 20 nights we had quite a... More

We stayed 3 nights,26th-29th and chose this hotel because rooms/apartments had a kitchen. On arriving the first view of the hotel was a bit daunting, 4 level, dark grey building with the bridge approaches going right over the top, and a building site (Wynyard Walkway) across the road. Reception area small, but staff so friendly & helpful, pleased when we... More

the apartment itself was fine and appeared to have been redecorated in the last year. what I find appalling is that my room essentially had no natural light as it was directly under the bridge and flyover / freeway. the curtains remained closed for the entire stay as there was no point in opening. I'm not sure you can provide... More
