I'll start by saying that this place was not what I would normally choose. However, given the excellent location and price, I thought I would give it a go. Stayed here a couple of nights and overall the experience was not that bad. I do note the comments of some other reviewers and would concur with some observations. It can... More

This hotel is grubby and has a strange aroma, almost like a sewerage issue throughout the corridors,up to our room. The room didnt smell any better. We felt it was not worth the money,and although the location was good,overall this place was grotty and our windows were mouldy also.We advise to stay elsewhere.Sorry!

The reviews were up and down..but we took a chance. Bad move..the room stench hit us when we opened the door. I went out and purchased some Eucalyptus oil, but it made no difference. As an asthma sufferer, i am certainly not impressed.. the room STINKS. The mould on the window is black. I will be advising the health dept... More

If u want to stay somewhere that is dusty, unkept, food under the bed & half eaten food in the mini bar fridge & that over-charges you well stay here! But I highly doubt that you will. The entrance of the hotel is the only up to date nice thing about this place (not the staff, just the reception area)... More

I needed a 2 bedroom apartment close to all amenities and found this Hotel, it was cheap , a TV in each bedroom and clean! I would highly recommend this Hotel, staff were friendly and efficient. Foyer not real big, but who cares when all one wants is a clean room to sleep. We were in walking distance to The... More

The location of the hotel was great with transport past the door to the hospital I had to attend. The cost was in our budget and all seemed good. The room was smallish but adequate for our needs. 1. The fridge. We had purchased some cheese and bickies and a couple of ice creams on the way to the hotel... More

This was the most dusty and dirty hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are small and bedding doesn't even fit the mattresses. Would not recommend to anyone. The noise from the streets is also very loud with nightclubs near by. Slamming doors in the corridor also.

First the positive...location is fantastic, cost of my stay was good value for money given its location, the staff are friendly and accommodating, despite my many gripes (see later in review), fittings are very new and modern, rooms are well equipped with anything one could wish for. The not so good...garage is hidden in a back street with no signage... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Ideally located in the heart of Sydney City centre. Handy for rail links, Darling Harbour, bars, restaurants, shops etc. Inexpensive for where it is compared to others. Our room was a good size with decor and furnishings in good order. Very comfortable bed. Rooms were tidied and beds made daily. Reception staff friendly and helpful.... More

had my second stay for three nights with a family room for $200 per night, nice and helpful front desk girls, fast booking orcancelling, awesome location to everywhere (train, Woolworths, Sky Tower, etc). Although bath room stuff could have been fixed in a better way, people complaining need to be fairer by considering the low cost. Would always choose them... More
