I stayed here for a night when I went to a concert in the city.
I love the capitol square building, with it's Japanese style pachinko and UFO catcher arcade and excellent restaurants, and always make a point of going there when in Sydney. This hotel is right upstairs from there, so made sense to stay here as that's where we would be having dinner.
Chinatown and the entertainment centre are just across George street as well.
I found the rooms to be a bit dowdy, but no worse than any other 3 star property in Sydney.
The bed was comfortable, clean and quiet and I've stayed in other places in Sydney that cost a lot more and didn't tick all of those boxes.
Unfortunately Sydney is very expensive when it comes to rooms, so anything under $150 pn is cheap. I got the room for around $120 a night and I think that's pretty competitive for this class of hotel in Sydney.
If you are on a budget you probably won't get a better location for the money. Don't expect luxury though.
The only real annoyance during our stay was due to the rudeness of another guest, who took her frustrations about the cramped lobby out on my partner and I, who happened to be in her way as she stomped through, despite our best attempts to make room.
Back on subject, I would stay here again, the price is right and you get what you pay for, right in the heart of the city.
