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

For the price we paid the accommodation was very very disappointing. The 'hotel' is very old and run down. We stayed in a king room with ensuite. Cupboards were taped shut and falling apart. The louvers on the windows were broken. The fan was noisy and very wobbly. No aircon. The ensuite was tiny; missing a shelf above the sink;... More

the photos on the website is a bit misleading. yes, it's located in a very good location - 10 minutes walk from the train station and there's a Coles nearby. But the room looks tired and it gets noisy at night. Our room had a ceiling fan which works fine except when it is at the max mode it sounds... More

This hotel is perfect for backpackers that would like their own room. The rooms are quite big and got a fridge, micro and so on but not a full kitchen so you can't make a proper meal. They offer a laundry room for 3 dollars, very nice! Close to the botanic garden and the area around offers lots of pubs,... More

Okay, lets ignore for a second that the room I stayed in was literally a shoebox (I guess that comes with the price), and the shared bathroom (which resulted in me locking myself outside), this is not actually a bad place, more because of the location than anything else. Okay, their wifi is expensive (and anything more than free is... More

It has looked nice on pictures, but not in the reality! The service was very poor! They said to us that we have to be at 8 pm if we want to get the key of the booked room: I have booked this hotel via agoda as it has looked nice and the price was good in comparison to other... More

Dear Guest We are sorry to read about your disappointment with our hotel. We try to make our office ours as clear as possible so as to avoid such disappointment. Your confirmation from Agoda clearly outlines that we are unable to check you in after 8pm if you are only staying for one night. As an additional follow up to... More

Extremely impressive staff; always friendly and happy to oblige with whatever request we made. The location is also very good. Close to the Botanical Gardens, and a comfortable walk to the nearest subway station (Kings Cross). The rooms were basic but clean and well equipped.

if you need a place to sleep and shower, this is the place. I am used to business trip in CBD, so I discovered Pott's point, I liked the many restaurants, conveniences stores, hip atmosphere of the neighborood and organic week-end market. Hotel is 10-15mins walk from Kings Cross, which in turn can connect to all major metro lines in... More

If your looking for reasonably priced accommodation, look no further. This comfortable and clean hotel is about a 10 min walk from the underground station kings cross. We found it without too much stress after getting off our 25 hour flight from London and a early check in was no problem which was ideal! Only thing I would say our... More

You get what you pay for with this hotel. The room was small, basic and clean. Fine if you want an inexpensive room in a central location. Kings cross station is only a 10 minute walk away. The staff were always really friendly and were happy to store our luggage for us. The office is very small and they don't... More
