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

These units are perfectly located to access and enjoy Sydney. Trains, buses and ferries are within easy walking distance as are Darling Harbour, The Rocks and many other attractions. Our one bedroom apartment was clean, spacious and had everything we needed including a washer and dryer and a full size fridge. The Manager Trevor was the added bonus with his... More

If you are looking for 5 star views or a mint on your pillow, look elsewhere... However, if all you need is a place to rest your head then this is the place for you. Located centrally and within walking distance to bus, train and ferry, it couldn't be better situated. Yes the place could do with a revamp, but... More

A booking error and mishap to one of our children resulted in the cancellation of our 4 night accommodation booking after 1 night. The Manager Trevor was exceptional and nothing was too difficult for him. On check in he advised us of all places of interest to us, and went out of his way to accommodate our requests. He speedily... More
