I was so pleased I chose to stay here - as it was so handy to everything I wanted to see and do. I could walk to Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, Paddy's Market, Chinatown - and though right on George Street, never hear a sound from the traffic below. My room was excellent (though I did have issues with the... More

This hotel was a tremendous value in an over-priced city. The common space and the rooms were furnished tastefully and staffed with uniformly uber-friendly people. The hotel was convenient to most of the city center of Sydney. The rooms are on the smallish size, but we did not have any issues.

The standard petite double rooms are small, just enough room on either side of the bed to get in. Bed was comfortable though. Reception staff were fantastic, check-in and out was efficient, really helpful with booking taxis and airport transfers. Good location, short walk to Central Station and the free bus also stops out the front. Free wifi for two... More

I booked this hotel for the price, location and the old world feel. It lived up to my expectations on all counts. Initially I booked a single bed room and was pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded to a double room on arrival. The building is solid and renovated tastefully. The room had a lovely street view. Bed comfortable, no... More

Good - fantastic location (close to everything). Pretty good security and helpful staff. Bad - the rooms are super duper small and the walls are paper thin. Prepare for sleepless nights if you are a light sleeper. This is a budget hotel for budget travellers. People with families and young children should stay away.

Dear AlvinChanJB, Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you found our rooms to be small. We do have Petite style rooms which I believe you reserved. However we certainly do have some Deluxe Doubles that are much larger, and I believe would be more suitable to your expectations. I am thrilled to hear that our... More

Rooms are small but we knew that when we booked so people who complain about the size of rooms need to do their homework first. They are clean and serviced daily.

Very nice and clean hotel in the center of the city. Amazing beds and altogether a very nice family room with a queen bed and two bunks. They organised a taxi to go to the airport in the morning and were very helpful. We had a room overlooking a car park and it was very quiet at night. Perfect!
