We chose this hotel because of the location, close to the shops, Darling Harbour and the harbour bridge etc. We pre ordered a shuttle which was only $15AUD from the international airport. As we arrived early morning our room wasn't ready (which is standard in most hotels) we went to Cockle Bay for brunch which is only an easy 5... More

This was formerly known as City Hotel Enterprise. We took the airport train from the Sydney domestic airport to the Town Hall station and exited QVB. The hotel is about 400m walk if you exit at Market St and walk past York and onto Clarence St. We walked with 3 big luggages with no issues. The fare one way per... More

A strange room set up with rooms feeding off a central area (possibly not a hotel before?) but sensible pricing and some really good craft beer bar and chinese and breakfast coffee shop directly south on same street (two of them with free Wifi). So a bit of a walk from Wynyard with luggage, but quieter than the main streets... More

This is a small budget hotel so don't raise your hopes too high. Location is good - within walking distance to darling harbour, George street (shopping). Service is not fantastic. Failed to book my shuttle to airport and made me wait for 1hr.😒 took a cab in the end.

We stayed here two nights prior to our Pacific Cruise. The rooms are small but adequate with your own bathroom. The location is perfect for wandering around the city centre. Only a short walk to Darling Harbour and the Aquarium. The price for such a central position is extremely reasonable. This property does not have meals, but this is not... More

My sister and had had three nights in a twin room on level one. We had an obviously updated room, which was really clean. The beds and pillows were very comfortable - most important!!! There was not a lot of room to move around the bottom of the beds which were very close to the wall, but lack of space... More

I spent two nights at this hotel recently whilst at a conference in the CBD and this was a great location for that and access to Darling Harbour. The rooms are small but clean and seem to have been recently improved. I was on the side away from the main street so noise wasn't an issue. The bed just fits... More

Really great location for Darling Harbour. Situated between Wynyard and Town Hall train stations. Less than five minute walk to all of above. Very pleasant staff, basic room although looking a little weary it was clean. Accommodation only, no restaurant or bar but plenty within a couple of minutes walk. OK for a short stay.

What a beautiful little hotel tucked away in central Sydney! I had to make a last minute business trip, and struggled to find accommodation where I usually stay. This hotel was just brilliant, clean and classy, very quiet with a large comfy bed and surprisingly large bathroom! My room had obviously been recently renovated, and it was worthy of a... More
