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

The single tiny room was way too small for a 2 week stay. When I asked them this they said it would be fine, however u was very cramped. I don't recommend this room for more than a nights stay. Also the heater wasn't working for my stay and there was a cockroach in the room. Not the best experience!

Excellent location however that's where excellent stops. Quite noisy (including sounds of rushing water when room above flushed toilet), room not very clean on arrival (used tissues around bathroom sink, toothpaste spatter on wall, etc), fridge in my room and TV in friends room didn't work, nicely renovated bathroom and friendly staff. In two minds whether I would stay again.

Clean & modern hotel. Very close to Darling Harbour and town hall train station. Staff are friendly but have trouble speaking English so booking in & out can be a problem. DO NOT BUY THE $10 WIFI. IT DOES NOT WORK.

We wanted somewhere within walking distance to Cicular Quay, but for a decent price. This hotel was nice, clean, friendly staff, decent room and great location. About a 15 min walk to Circular Quay, very close to Queen Victoria Building for shopping/eating/drinking and close to many other restaurants and bars. Also close to train station to get to the airport... More
