Reasonably priced rooms in a good location close to light rail and Chinatown, Darling Harbour and attractions. Room clean and spacious, slightly ageing and needing a revamp. Breakfast is a smorgasbord and very reasonably priced. Helpful staff.

Pros: clean sheets and a comfortable bed. Friendly and helpful staff. Neutral: very tired and old fashioned rooms. Cons: wallpaper peeling from the walls. Arms of lounge chairs greasy with use and nap worn off. Layers of dust on the coffee table and other surfaces. Dining: no GF options. In this day and age? Not acceptable. The outlet pipe for...

With a short walk to Darling Harbour and the city, this accommodation is good value for money and also has parking if you have a car. The rooms are very comfy and clean. Breakfast was cheap and cheerful.

OK I will start with the good bits (this won't take long). The staff are very helpful and apologetic. The rooms are very old fashioned and outdated. There are stains over walls and ceiling a clear indication that they have not been painted in a long time. There is no WiFi in the rooms but you can go into the... More

We stayed here 8 days over new year. The standard is a 3 star hotel, pretty old furnitures in the room but ok and fresh. The wi-fi only works in the mainlobby. But the location is great. Close to harbour,trainstation and cbd. The location is very safe and quiet.

Booked a 5 day stay here to see Opera and fireworks, selected because of budget and nothing available in Circular Quay area over New Year's.

We recently stayed 5 nights here and found it easy to get to transport and Paddys Market. The reception staff were extremely helpful and always greeted you with a smile. Although the rooms are in much need of a revamp I believe that is happening this year. Highly recommend.
