We stayed here for the location only. The price is reasonable but our room was in terrible shape. The second room is booked for my family was in better condition. The hotel needs some TLC. Location is good and I would go back if I needed to be in that area again.

Must admit I was a little apprehensive after reading such negative reviews about this property, but can happily report that I did not agree. My room was spacious and clean. Hotel is located close to where I needed to be for training the next day. Decor was reasonably modern and the room looked and smelt clean. It had been raining... More

A convenient location if you need get to the RPA hospital or Sydney University. King St, Newtown is a short walk away, with lots of great options for eating out. My room oldish in decor, but I can live with that. I wasn't impressed with the cleanliness though - the bathroom floor felt grubby, the bottom of the wardrobe was... More

Pleasant staff on check-in who stored our bags due to our early arrival. Walking distance to Sydney University and restaurants/cafes in Newtown, also short bus ride into the city. The room was large, clean and adequate with a small bathroom, nice view of the city. Could do with some updating but overall good value for the location

It was completely unacceptable. Poorly maintained, mouldy and dirty. The ‘minibar’ consisted of candy COATED in dust and drinks that looked like they had been in the fridge for months. The entry to the pool via level 1 is impractical and confusing. The outdoor stairs used to access the pool were filthy – covered in mould and littered with cigarette... More

I opted to stay at this property for location only as I needed to be near friends in Camperdown. The building was originally built as a Travelodge and I like the Tri Arc design. It takes you back to the 70's and it immediately reminded me structurally of the original Travelodge in Darwin which has been lovingly maintained and modernised.... More

My family flew to Sydney for a function and booked 3 rooms for the Saturday night. The first arrivals were given room 503. It was completely unacceptable. Poorly maintained, mouldy and dirty. After complaining they were moved to a still tired and very average room. The other two rooms were ordinary at best and certainly not worth the $200-250 charged.... More
