Stayed for 5 nights in Oct. Brilliant location - easy walk to Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour, Chinatown & into city. Slightly longer but do-able walks to casino & rocks. Very friendly staff (apart from one lady who was frequently sat at the tour desk - looked like she didn't want to be bothered!). Everything else good. Only negative was the view out of the window - very run down and not at all attractive. Never mind, balcony, although had no view, proved an ideal spot to get a little bit of hand-washing dry prior to taking off on our overseas portion of our trip!
