“Great apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Great apartment and location too. The apartment is huge for a Sydney inner city location, it's clean and great views. Staff pretty good too. Easy train ride from airport to wynyard station although this cost ~ $17

We loved this location. The 2 bedroom apartment we had was very spacious. It was clean. Great facilities in the kitchen. Our particular apartment needs an update which I believe is happening. Not the most comfy bed we've stayed in but okay. Would stay here again. Very close to Wynyard train station which was handy. Five min walk to the Rocks/Cirqular Quay area. Five min walk to Westfield on Pitt Street/ Martin Place area. A little noisy with traffic but it's In the middle of Sydney so expected. Lovely and accommodating staff. The airport service bus they have is good value compared to the train.

The hotel is just steps from Wynyard Station and we got a discounted room which made it very affordable. Because it was so cheap, I didn't mind the outdated fixtures so much and the room had a great view over the pool. It has everything you need for a longer stay such as washing machine and dryer as well as a pretty big kitchen that you could actually cook in. It also has some nice touches such as robes and newspapers. The bed and pillows were super comfortable.

We stayed before the ANZAC Dawn Service and the desk staff at 4am who helped us with the free tea and Anzac biscuits was lovely!

Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: If you don't want an older style (but very cheap and with good facilities) ask if they have reno...

Really good sized apartment, with balcony, and fully fitted out kitchen / laundry etc. Really friendly service (although pretty slow when I was racing past to pick up my left luggage the following day). Breakfast not bad value for $20 (compared to many hotels). Lighting a bit dull in the living area (like most hotels!), and you would want a room as far from the lifts as possible - as the noise of people coming and going was pretty loud at night. Great location for central city / business meetings.

Room Tip: Stay away from the lifts - sound proofing is not great so could make for a noisy night.

We stayed in one of the apartments that hadn't been refurbished which we knew when we booked it. The staff were very welcoming and the apartment very large, a little old fashioned maybe but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The washing machine/dryer was a bonus. These apartments are minutes from Circular Quay, The Opera House, The Rocks etc. would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room, road is quite noisy.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom flat for 2 nights over Easter holidays. It was very quiet, only 4 flats on the floor. The whole place was spotless which is really nice and a big push to use jacuzzi and sauna. The heated pool was really warm, 22 deg I reckon but I just stayed in the jacuzzi!!
Very noisy outside, forget using the balcony, but good soundproof windows.
Staff was not really warm, they looked and felt busy.
Biggest disappointment was the cot we pre booked in our room; it was a disgrace!
the mattress was broken and we used 4 blankets to try and make it comfortable. Really don't understand why anyone would have even dared to set it up. I mentioned it and was told to put more blankets?!
It is clean, big, great location but customer service lacks.

We were welcomed by your cheerful reception staff on Friday 11th April and were given a totally unexpected upgrade. Thank you!
The two bedroom apartment on the 20th floor with a view out to the harbour was very much appreciated as we rarely splurge on a night in the city. I cannot fault your apartment nor your service, it was wonderful and I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend you to my friends
