My partner and I stayed here with our family and friends after our wedding around the corner in Chippendale. It was a great hotel with nice boutique rooms. There is a courtyard and a bar where you can also have breakfast in the morning for an additional cost. They didn't offer a cheaper wedding rate even though we had quite... More

Stayed overnight on a business trip Nov 2014. Reasonably nice pub style hotel, clean, although I found my ground floor room (112) pretty small. The place was very quiet considering the noise from Wattle street, (roadworks outside at 11.00pm), so the heavy stone walls and thick widows certainly help. Air conditioning works well, and I think this is a great... More

Only a quick visit to Sydney and so lucky to stay one night at this little gem. Clean room, comfy bed, modern clean bathroom. Only sorry I couldnt open the window but it didnt really matter as the aircon was fine. So quiet, even though I was on the ground floor and next to the street. I slept so well,... More

The room provided the space and amenities that I needed. The room was clean, the bathroom modern, and the air-conditioning worked brilliantly over a very hot weekend. The staff were terrific and the breakfast at the café was tasty and reasonably priced. For the price, the location was unbeatable. I was within 10 minutes of what I needed and this... More

After 1.5 days of flying from UK, this hotel was Perfect. Clean, Tidy, Fragrant and Fantastic Services. You can stay in your room, chill-out in the lounge or go and have some food. Could not recommend anywhere better and cheaper!!!

This hotel did not meet my expectations! I paid 229 dollars to a room that stinks as soon as you enter. Food particles on the floor meaning they did not clean the room properly. Blankets are not even nice. Although close to Chinatown, I Will never come back again and I will not recommend this hotel definitely!

Was visiting my Cousins over here from Western Australia. The staff were very friendly but the cafe was not open other than that it looked good and very tidy, clean and good. My cousins had no complaints.

Stayed for one night. Chose hotel due to its close proximity to UTS. Booked and paid for a queen bed with kitchen but was given a double room with no kitchen. Management was not willing to change my room. Room was tired with torn and stained carpet. Towels had stains. Not recommended.
