4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

A friend & I stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend.

We chose it due to the proximity to Central Station & the fact that it was one of the few affordable hotels with both a pool & a gym. Most hotels we looked at had one or the other.

We got there at 11:30am & were happy to find that the room was ready- we didn't have to wait until 2:00pm to go up. They offered to split the bed into two singles, which we accepted. It took until about 3:00pm, but we didn't mind- we went shopping.

The room looked exactly as it looked in pictures from their website. It's very clean, but they don't supply many toiletries (a bath but no bubble bath or body wash?). The beds were very comfortable.

I'd seen lots of noise complaints with this hotel on TripAdvisor, but it's just normal street noise. We were on the 7th floor overlooking Central Station, where it's most noisy, but it's easy to sleep through. It's just part of being in a city.

A guy at the desk booked zoo tickets for us, which I appreciated, & they held our bags for us when we checked out.

All in all a good stay. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: There's a 7/11 on the corner- don't waste money on the minibar.

Checkin/Checkout all without fuss.
Our twin room was very comfortable, clean and spacious.
'Streetside' room was very noisy due traffic and the windows not being double glazed.
Otherwise a pleasant experience.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

This hotel is located in a great location. The hotel itself is feeling a bit dated and the lift is as slow as a wet week. The room was average. The best thing about this hotel is that it is in easy walking distance of the train station, China Town and the hustle and bustle of Sydney.
