One of the worst hotels you could ever go to! I dont know how they can call themselves a hotel! Online it didnt look to bad, it was a good price close to the city. However, when you enter you start to realise it is a very below grand hotel. The entrance was dirty, the lift was very dirty I... More

You get what you pay for in Syd! My shower was dirty with someone else hair & the walls are really thin. Also my sheets didn'y get changed - maybe they don't? my towels did but then they left the old ones in my room anyway? Location & value are great but that's nearly it.

Not a place you would want to spend any more than a few hours. A bit scruffy but clean. Totally basic, no kettle or tea/coffee etc, TV hardly worked, Room tiny but comfortable bed. Purely for travellers needing a quick kip. Tobacco smell smoke in foyer overwhelming. You get what you pay for in Sydney.

We are lucky to find a vacant room for Xmas in Sydney after long search. Hotel has an excellent location close to everything with 10 minute walk with only $99 at Xmas time where all other hotels were fully booked or double/ triple price. Our room has a good view over the Bridge Habour though window was a bit dirty.... More
