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.

My husband and I spent a night at the Vulcan on the last night of our 3 week tour of Australia. We booked this hotel because it looked "interesting" and it was fairly close to the airport. The taxi driver was unable to find the address, so we grabbed our bags and eventually found the hotel on our own. Reception... More

We were booked into this hotel by a holiday company. As we arrived on my husband's birthday I emailed the hotel in advance to advise them of this and asked for a room with a view. What we actually got was a very small room with a view of an ugly concrete building across the street. We could not use... More

This is a small, and historic hotel run by a family. It is well located in the Central station area of Sydney. My Superior Double was a bit smaller than I thought it would be from viewing the photos when booking, but it was clean, with a wonderful mattress and good shower. My only complaint, and this is actually a... More
