Looking for a cheap but good location that would keep my gf happy we found this place. Location is on the tourist bus route, short walk to Kings cross, don the stairs to get in to central Sydney and quiet enough at night so sleep wasn't an issue. Good little cafe and restaurant just downstairs and across the road or... More

if you dont mind carring your bags upstairs then this is at place for you, just far enough away from the main st of Kings cross, nice little stroll from the train station and the bus stop is just around the corner from the hotel, one little let down was that the there is a cafe just beside this hotel...

We had 2 days in SYD as part of our Austrlian trip, and it worked well for us. It had a really good location in a quiet neighborhood, but still near restaurants, cafès, and 10 mins walking distance from Kings Cross Metro Station. For the prices in Sydney, it was affordable. There's also a Grocery store near the hotel. The... More

I chose this hotel not knowing Sydney at all. The price was right and it seemed not far from the CBD. It turned out to be in a perfect location for our interests with excellent restaurants (Cho Cho San and Gazebo) and close proximity for walking to the water and beautiful parks (the botanic gardens). The hotel staff were friendly... More

This is not a hotel where you would want to hang out but it's great if you just want a place to sleep. We had a double room and it was comfortable. There was enough wardrobe space, a fridge and possible to make your own coffee or tea. I thought they could have had more shelves or hooks in the... More

The best part? Jonathan at the front desk. He answered all of our questions & gave great directions. Yes it's old & a bit shabby, but the location is Fabulous. AM Coffee & the Banana Toast next door at the street level bistro was perfect!!

Stayed here late last year for 4 nights. We booked the superior king suite because the pictures online looked great! Until we walked in.. there was no lifts (which was ok because we knew this was the case) but we didnt know we'd be on the top floor with a 20kg suitcase to carry up! Anyway my partner and i... More

We arrived late on Thursday night and as they don't have reception late is was great that the key was where they said it would be. The room is compact but very clean, the amenities are good. The only downside is the lack of aircon - this meant the windows need to be left open and as the Maisonette is... More
