Close to city, close to public transport. Ideal location and nice and spacious rooms. Attentive and helpful staff. Good for families, couple or business stays. Only drawback being no free wifi at rooms.

Search hard to get a special price, don't pay normal pricing! Easy walk to: Powerhouse Museum, ABC Ultimo, Central Station, Darling Harbour, Chinatown. Leave your car at home. Quiet street away from traffic. Eat down the street, great cafes... the hotel breakfast, although cheap is not good value. Expect well loved furniture, fittings... age is taking its toll. The lifts... More

We stayed here for two nights in October and while we had clean rooms the decor is very dated and the sign saying that the bathroom door must be shut to save setting the fire alarm off otherwise we'd be liable for any costs was worrying. The location is average and is a good 15 minute walk to Darling Harbour.... More

My stay started with a 25 minute wait to check in - our corporate travel agency booked this hotel out of sheer desperation for somewhere close to Darling Harbour at short notice. I was told at the counter that I couldn't check in until they got verification of the credit card used by our travel agent - so clearly they... More

While the rooms were very clean, the place is incredibly old and run-down, our room had no couch, terrible lighting and a bathroom with no extractor fan and a warning that of steam from the shower sets off the fire alarm we would be liable for any costs. The lifts were worryingly creaky and unsteady and the price for parking... More

Good location,15 mins walk to Darling harbour and 10 mins from the train station but this hotel was dirty, grubby carpets, lots of dust. Kept awake at night by a noisy lift that sounded like a grizzly bear in pain. Wouldn't stay there again.

I stayed at this property after a >10 year break. The result was awful. The condition of the bed and room was appalling and it appeared that no work has been done in more than 10 years apart from the worst patching of woodwork imaginable. On check-in I was confronted by an employee who demanded a copy of my drivers... More

It was really hard to find by car, offstreet parking difficult, expensive undercover parking, a big clump of hair on the floor of the bathroom. It was absolutely charmless but at least the staff were pleasant.
