Terrifying for anyone who expects a night of sleep. York St is the exit from the harbour bridge and just past Wyndham Station. A popular bus and taxi thoroughfare. This popular '80's place was left behind in the rush to 2014. You are in a time machine here without the maintenance one would expect. Although some people rate this clean,... More

My family and I have just spent 5 nights at the Carrington and have to say it was excellent value for money. Such a big spacious apartment with everything you need and more. The best thing is its location, right in the centre of town and an easy short walk to everything. Will be staying here again on our next... More

After two weeks of moving out and about in Sydney hotels for our 6 weeks stay, this was absolutely our home away from home. Arrived earlier than check in time and met the owner with our temporary room being cleared and cleaned which was nice, but took a day before the detergent smell went away. Walking distance to commercial offices,... More

The only good thing about these apartments is the great central location. They are overpriced for the condition they are in and are smelly and in need of a complete refurbish . The on site manager told us that this was due to take place soon. Would only stay again when the refurbish was complete if the price was ok.

I don't know whether I was more afraid of the poorly locking windows, the pre-cold war Russian decor or the abundance of scary wildlife. I am going to sleep with a can of mortein and a steak knife fully clothed tonight! Suggest only those with a strong constitution should venture here. In my shower is a jagged broken soap dish...

Went to Sydney with 2 friends (a married couple) and wanted a two bedroom apartment rather than two hotel rooms. We wanted to spend more on seeing the sites, eating out and shopping than the hotel so we booked a budget 2 room apartment at the Carrington Apartments. We arrived just after 9.00am and were able to leave our suitcases... More

I chose Carrington because, despite some mixed reviews I could see that location and price must have some bearing on choice. I am glad I did because this place ended up being a wee gem. Granted the apartments are a wee bit dated (think average Kiwi motel) but they are clean and come with EVERYTHING! For a business motel this... More

Our apartment was very run down,couches very worn & unclean looking,kitchen crockery were all a mismatch,oven&extractor fan did work,bathroom cabinets rotting away, bath rusted,tap knob fell off,we left this lying in the bath,no effort to refit during our stay despite cleaners coming in. Obviously the Manager could not have inspected this apartment for a long time
