Plain simple no nonsense hotel. Clean comfortable rooms. Very helpful staff. Quiet location ideal for city connections - compares well with Premier Inn type hotel in UK. No frills but served our purpose to a T at a reasonable price

Stayed here for three nights whilst my father was in hospital. The staff are all extremely helpful and really do everything they can to assist you (& my elderly parents). The breakfasts are nice, the food next door (same establishment) is great and excellent value. Rooms are small but clean. Beds are comfortable. This is a perfect base for carers... More

We stayed here for a night to see Cirque Du Soleil at Moore Park, so the location was perfect. The drive down from Newcastle was easy, the hotel had parking and the staff were very helpful while we checked in. They even recommended not to get a taxi and walk to the show since it was so close, which saved... More

I stayed here over Christmas catching up with my children who are based here, it was chosen for the great Paddington location. Service was great ~ they actually listened to you & followed through. Great breakfast, cereals, fruit, toast, papers & you can squeeze your own orange juice. The garden area and pool are a bonus, great bookshop next door.... More

We (3 adults) visited Sydney for a relatives wedding and wanted to stay at Paddington. Public transport is right outside the door and the Arts Hotel is also within walking distance of town. The rooms are compact but clean and beds very comfortable and the addition of a pool was great. Our room was on the road but we found... More

The location is a compromise between cost and convenience, at about 45 mins walk and an easy bus ride from Circular Quay - less from Botanical Gardens. Paddington is slightly run down in places, but improves in neighbouring locations. The hotel building is showing its age a little, but the rooms are well maintained, if simply decorated. However, the hotel... More

Needed a hotel for a few nights in Sydney and this seemed the best value. When I tried to find it it came up about a mile away from where it actually is. The taxi driver dropped me off where the postcode said. But may have just had a dodgy driver! But if you get dropped by a subway shop... More
