We chose this hotel for the location and will return for the service ans style. Lovely little place with simple but classy decor. Clean and comfortable. The staff were so friendly with the warmest and most efficient check in ever. We walked to Darling Harbour and enjoyed the vibe of this inner city location. Very close to UTS. Great price,... More

It was a lovely surprise. Very affordable and equally as charming! Will be back for sure. Room was clean and fresh, all the comforts one would expect from a room in a higher price bracket! Breaky was yummy too!

We booked this hotel as we were going to Wentworth Park. It was so close to everything we were able to walk everywhere. We did go to Wentworth Park and then the next day strolled to Darliong Harbour ( 15mins) . The staff were very friendly and helpful, the parking ( for $20 for 24hrs) was 2 minutes away and... More

I'd mistakenly booked my room for the night after I arrived, but the check-in cheerfully and quickly corrected my mistake, gave me a room for the night with an upgrade for the original price. Lovely to stay in a non-chain hotel with a bit of charm to it and everyone was friendly and helpful.

Nice hotel with friendly staff only 10/15 minutes walking from the city center (Darling Harbour). Nice and safe neighbourhood, shopping mall in only 2 minutes walking and GREAT BREAKFAST!! The rooms are modern and airconditioned. Free wifi everywhere (sometimes a little slow but experienced that everywhere in Australia). Would really recommend a stay in this hotel!

Great location. Just five minutes walk to China town, Sydney fish market and CBD. Fantastic staff and well maintained rooms. Chef prepares ALaCarte breakfast daily in house. Nice convenient hotel for the business traveler. This is our fourth stay and I don't have any regrets.

The staff is very nice, especially Gonzague who... More

I shared a room with a friend at this hotel when we went to Sydney to present at a conference. Both of us found the room clean and the single beds comfortable. My only complaint was that the bathroom supplied toiletries for just one person. That might have been okay if we were a 'couple', but not for two people... More
