I wish I'd read the reviews before I booked non-refundable. I'm not very fussy, so I hoped the reviews were exaggerated. Not so. The hotel isn't just run down, it looks infested. The paint and furniture is bubbling and peeling and there was mould everywhere. The worst thing was the SMELL. It's dank and mouldy and just makes you want... More

Stayed 1 night, both of us ended up with severe bed bug bites. We had time off work and a course of antibiotics. As we had only been at home before and afterwards, it was evident this motel was the cause. It may be close to everything, but needs a serious serious clean up.

This hotel is conveniently located, the beds are comfortable, the linen is clean, but everything is very run down and shabby. We booked on-line for a kingsize bed and two singles in a large family room and were given a very cramped room with a queen bed, one single bed and a set of double bunks! To their credit, the...

This hotel has bed bugs, stay away. I emailed the hotel and have not received a response after a week. I woke up an saw a bug on my pillow and thought nothing of it. A day later my body was infested with bites. Bed was also very hard and the bathroom and walls are deteriorated.

We recently made the trip to Sydney to pick up family from the air port and needed last minute accommodation that was reasonable priced . This hotel was clean and tidy with helpful staff and walking distance to restaurants and shops and only 4 kms to the international airport we will be staying there next time we travel to Sydney...

Addison's is in need of an overhaul. Prices have been creeping up over the last couple of years with little improvement offered to the guests. However, there is free parking and it is close to Fox Studios, NIDA and the Uni. Its a short drive to the city, China Town, Darling Harbour etc and there is public transport on your... More

This is the 3rd time we have returned to what we affectionally now refer to as the 'The Addy'. It delivers exactly what we need and hasn't let us down. Adequate 'facilities' including a bed, shower and balcony. Our room this time had been recently painted suitably impressing us. Full computer facilities now also available near reception. Whilst we haven't... More

It's cheap, but tired, very tired, and that's putting it kindly. We needed to be within walking distance of the University of NSW for a business engagement in Sydney, so I booked the Addison on-line because it had location, free off-street parking and a reasonable price, When we arrived, reception staff were pleasant and helpful. But that's where the positives... More

Haven't stayed for a while, just logged on to see if this fleapit is still open. And apparently it is despite recent reviews that show nothing has changed. Oh, Yvonne S. from East Sydney liked the place, all very clean and nice and quiet. The fact Yvonne is from East Sydney, you could ask why she would be staying in... More

Booked for two nights as we wer attending a sporting event in the area. This hotel will be on my lost of not to go to again. Can deal with dated furniture and decor but annoying when things are not working. Light switches had the outer side of the casing missing. Bedside lamp did not work at all. Planned to... More
