The Hotel room, one king size bed, one double sofa that converts into a double bed, was just what was needed yet spacious. It is close to the city markets, China Town, and Darling Harbour kids park, so something for everyone. The free parking, buffet breakfast, and free WI FI is hard to beat. As I have said, being on...

Stayed here for work. Large hotel. Pros- efficient checkin and out, Large rooms. Recently refurbished. Cons - no mini bar, sheets smelt of smoke, bed average. Convenient location to central train station, design stores and cafes in close proximity.

The second of three hotels I stayed at in March, this was quite possibly the most disappointing one, considering the asking price of ~$250 for the standard Superior Room, even with the 8pm late check in discount I used. The thing I noticed immediately was how spacious the room was, but it did come with faults. The light for the... More

Close to the main train station and not a far walk from the city and Surry hills area. Indoor swimming Pool and heated spa were handy to have in the same hotel. Very nice room, large and clean. Very comfortable.

We booked this as a mystery deal and were pleasantly surprised. Close to Central Station which was great for us as no car parking required. Very helpful staff, enjoyed buffet breakfast, comfortable bed, also had dinner in the Italian Kitchen Bar Surry Hills which was also very nice and quick service when we told them we had limited time as...

This is a decent hotel with all you would expect of a hotel of this star rating. Helpful if not overly friendly and decent furnishings. Cleanlyness is something I'm always very fussy about and this hotel was good in that regard. happy to stay there again.
