We stayed here on a flying visit to Sydney, for one night. Got in late, ate and slept, so didn't spend a lot of time in the room. Overall, it had everything we needed (bed and shower!) and was centrally located for our needs. It's a 12 minute train ride from the airport, and a very short walk from Museum... More

I stayed here for four nights during Chinese New Year festivities. Great CBD location, nice room, on site facilities and friendly professional staff. Very close to shopping, restaurants, bars, cafes etc. Will certainly stay here on my next Sydney visit be it business or pleasure.

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights, on arrival the staff couldn't find my reservation and after some looking finally found it under a random name. For this we were upgraded to a better room and told they were refurbishing some rooms and we would be on the other side of the hotel away from this. Got to our... More

Large room and right in the middle of Sydney Cbd. Very comfortable bed and quick food delivery to room. Extremely clean and a nice view from the window. Not even noisy even though in the middle of the city. Have stayed more than once!

Here for a conference, 3 days and the rooms are pretty standard fare, comfy bed, decent shower, quiet, especially as I had the street below me. Breakfast was fine, all the bases covered, the lunches too were substantial. Only blemish would have been the conference dinner, the meal I ended up with was devoid of vegetables.... Apart from that, a... More

Overnight stay for business. Got in late and needed to order dine in. So cautiously opened the room service menu to a surprisingly well priced menu. Ordered the fillet steak rare with home chips. Fillet was perfectly cooked and delivered promptly. Room was neat, clean, tidy and most importantly for the business traveler, quiet.

The hotel is pretty centrally located, close to chinatown and shopping. There is also a coles located in the basement of the building. The rooms are quite outdated, if renovated this may things. The service was ok, no real issues. If you can get a good price then its worth the stay.
