Aircon wasn't working on the first night of our stay - the night shift manager was able to swap another room for us. The location of the hotel was superb! There were plenty of entrances to the hotel. The elevator is quite slow and stairs were not luggage-friendly. Room was clean, although it lacked a bit of furniture and a... More

Fantastic Hotel. Close to everything, and free shuttle bus at front. Lovely rooms. Loved the lounge room, big sofas, TV, kettle, toaster, fridge and washing facilities. Loved the outdoor verandas if you want a bit of fresh air. Staff are very friendly and approachable. Housekeeping is spot on. Nothing to fault...I even like the lift...yes it's slow but the Hotel...

From other reviews I was expecting a small room and that's what I got - open the door and there's the bed (the door barely missed the bed), but for one person it was comfortable, nice washroom and the air conditioning was nice. WiFi left a lot to be desired, would barely load most websites. Great location, right in the... More

First thing I need to mention - it was a very clean hotel! For a 3 star hotel, it was better than I expected. For a Saturday night, and needing to fit 3 people in the room the price was really good. We got the Trio room, which said that it had a double bed and a bunk bed. Getting... More

Clean, small although just needed the bed so perfect for us, if you like a large room do check! Otherwise most went well although when checking out at the deadline there was a long line so may be best to leave a little earlier or ask for a late checkout.

This was a perfect stay in Sydney. It was a 5-10 walk to Central Train station and so close to Chinatown with so many cafes/restaurants. It was clean and quiet, so no complaints there. My husband is a 100kg/183cm and the little double bed felt small as was the room. Although there was a window, you could not really open... More
