I just had one night here. Location is good, and it was interesting exploring Darling Harbour and Pyrmont. Room is small but facilities good and bed was very comfortable, which was all that I required. Staff helpful, efficient and professional.

Look the rooms are not huge but who cares really as your only coming back to sleep. The beds are super comfortable and well you will be hard pushed to find a more central location right in the heart of downtown Sydney. Ample transport options right at the door. This accommodation while without all the frills of perhaps some others is a real winner given the price, cleanliness, and location. The buffet breakfast available for on line reservations only at $12 is excellent.

We lately stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The location of the venue is just perfect. You have darling habour in front of you, so if you like to walk a bit its perfect. You have direct access to the cheap boat ferry (to opera house/circular quay, to the beaches, etc.), to the Aquarium, the IMAX theatre and many pubs/restaurants, the hop on/off bus - everything within a few walking minutes. Even to the city center its just 10-15min by walk. So we really did enjoy our stay a lot, also because the service at the reception counter was very good and friendly (especially one young, tall lady). The only thing which is a bit of a downside is the size of the room (very small and no cupboard) - but thats IBIS-like and so no surprise. I you plan to explore the city and you dont want to hang around in the room anyway than thats a pretty good one to stay. The rooms with a view onto the darling harbour are great. Also a gym is available (in the neighbour hotel) for free. And on the corner there is a nice pub if you want to grab a pint after a day full of sight seeing. As we hadnt prebooked breakfast, we did book it after we arrived and it was also very good price/value-wise.

Room Tip: The rooms with a view onto the darling harbour are great.
