Checking in, our booking was unable to be found as it was "cancelled". After much discussion, it was discovered, and had even been prepaid. Of course the room wasn't ready to check in at 1.10pm, even though a special request had been made for a much earlier checkin upon booking. Neither was our request for a room on the higher... More

We had not had a break in Sydney since July 2013 and decided that it was time to return for a quick getaway. Thursday & Friday nights 27-28 March were our preferred dates.

Hotel is centrally located. Close to Darling Harbour, China Town, and Central Sydney. Taxi from airport via Redfern less that $35 in non peak time. Clean. Room quite spacious. Staff very attentive. No issues.

Rooms are typically bland business style, but well equipped, comfy bed, fast (paid) internet and good selection of Foxtel TV channels. Breakfast is pretty good: standard hot selection, but they...
