I booked a family room (4 guests max) Turned out to have a very uncomfortable double & two sets of single bunks - this is in a room around 12ft by maybe 14ft at the max. The first room we were put in had a plastic bag over the fire alarm & I dread to think of what the odour... More

This hotel is so overrated on the website. Photos do not reflect the sad reality of this shabby place. I didnt even want to walk on the carpet without shoes. There are obvious stains everywhere of dubious origin. This place should be kept for those who rent by the hour. Actually even they deserve better. I feel sorry for anyone... More

No major problems here we booked kinda last minute and wanted sometime reasonable as we were coming to the end of our holiday. we booked in oct wasn't hot so don't know what the air conditioning is like that you would need in the summer months. The car parking is free which is a plus for Sydney but you have... More

Hotel was booked for a quick overnight stay. Good value for money if you want something your only going to sleep in, not exactly the place I would choose to stay if I was entertaining guests, or spending the night in watching tv. Although cheap price range does make it extremely affordable considering the central location. perfect for an over... More

Not good value. Mattress had lumps; shower water lurched uncontrollably from very hot to cold; no shampoo in shower; no cover or padding on ironing board; worn carpets; and chipped tile.

I stayed in the Addison for a week in January and although I was put off by the reviews (which I read after booking!) I found the hotel to be clean and very reasonably priced for the money. OK I had to re-tune the telly and it's not in the tourist areas, but it's only a 15 minute bus ride... More

The whole thing about the Addison is location. It is within walking distance of Moore Park and the University of New South Wales, and has buses to the city passing right by the door .It is a non-smoking property and that policy appears to be strictly enforced. Another plus is the (small) car park at the rear of the hotel.... More
