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

We recently stayed for 2 nights due to an event in the area. After reading reviews I was extremely concerned. On arrival I was very disappointed to see that all the reviews had not prompted management to clean the property. I work in a hotel in Canberra and would not expect guests to pay for old food in the microwave,... More

We booked 3 nights in this hotel because it was close to what we want. This hotel is one of the worst hotel I have ever stayed. Disgusting, smelly and very dirty. I found blood stains on the bedspread, and it was smelly and looks like it has not been washed for decades. The pillows were disgusting. The foam were... More

This would have to be one of the worst Hotels I have stayed in. No lamp shade on the bedside light fitting,no bottle opener, no toaster, the fire alarm sensor had been covered in tin foil, the room was dirty, they didn't sevice the room on our last day. The hallway has never been vacuumed, an empty bottle of beer... More

I will never stay at this hotel ever again. Now I know why their was no photos on the net of the rooms. Used soap on the shower floor. Air conditioning didn't work. Rather have slept in my car. The hotel needs a full make over of internal and externals areas. The room rate is too high for the level... More
