My wife and I stay at this hotel each time we visit Sydney from Merimbula. It is close to Central Station where our train from Canberra terminates. As others have mentioned it is also close to Paddy's Market, Chinatown,The Capitol Theatre and just a tad further to Darling Harbour.
The hotel is affordable and with clean rooms, in house restaurant, pleasant staff, the adjoining popular bar and convenience stores nearby, you have everything you need when visiting Sydney Town. The staff at the bar have never refused our request for some ice, in a plastic bag, for us so that we can enjoy our G&T's at night in front of our TV.
The bar has great pub meals but it is absolutely packed with office workers on a Friday night and although this can be a great atmosphere you can't hear yourself talking; best then to go next door to the peace of the adjoining restaurant- they have the same meals.
If you are going to the airport it is just as cheap to book a taxi than take the the far- too- expensive train. The hotel is happy to look after your luggage for a small charge if you wish to sight see before catching your train or plane
