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

Excellent value for money, in a great location and with simple, clean rooms. Last time I had a shared bathroom which was less problematic than I thought; this time I had a tiny but practical ensuite. The stairs are steep and narrow and there's no lift, but I'm lucky that's not a problem for me. No standard reception, just a... More

I was referred to The Maisonette by a hotel in the same group that was fully booked - it was a lucky switch! Jonathan, the receptionist, couldn't have been more helpful, phoning me back straightaway with a work-around for the minimum two-night stay as we only needed to be in Sydney for one night. When we arrived, he helped me... More

Stayed here 5 nights. The receptionist Jonathon was excellent - couldn't do enough to help and always with a smile. BUT after I went into my single room (no. 33) on the 3rd floor (struggling up very narrow staircase with my luggage) I found the wifi signal was so weak I couldn't access it - and I'd just had to...

Had this booked for me due to a work trip. Room 22 was dirty, dated and there were cockroaches. Research on here and Bookings.com shows that i'm not the first to encounter them. Also noisy due to restaurant business below. I legged it that very night as I don't like sharing my room with insects.

As per the title - very very affordable and my twin room ( even though staying alone ) was great. A simple twin room ensuite which was clean. The staff were great and the ease of booking in and out was perfect. The wonderful thing about this guest house is its stunning location. Close to the train station, close to... More

We stayed in Sydney for one night and needed somewhere cheap within walking or train distance of everything. this was the perfect spot. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. Unfortunately there was no balcony or lift, and the stairs are narrow and long, but hey what do you expect paying so little, so this was fine. I... More

I stayed here is June 2012 and loved the location. I have since stayed elsewhere in Kings Cross Potts Point area as I like to try different premises. I did book well in advance and booked a twin ensuite room as needed a bit more space and the singles had shared bathrooms. The room was on the left hand side... More
