“Great location for getting around Sydney with good customer service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2009

After getting the airport shuttle, I arrived at the fairly anonymous looking door with a slight sense of concern. However none of this was founded. The room was large with a bathroom, kitchenette, lounge area and balcony ( no view really from my room ).
In addtion there was a TV, DVD, Microwave, Internet connection and Hi-Fi.
Set in the China Town area there are many restaurants and 24hr convenience stores nearby.
Talking a walk out, towards the harbour, it is 2 minutes to the excellent Darling Harbour with many bars and restaurants ranging from low cost to 5* eateries.
This harbour is also a hub for ferries around the city, and there is a nearby stop for the open top sight seeing bus.
As a solo traveller I found this to be the perfect location for my visit. I could spring board to almost anywhere in the city with minimal cost and effort.

On my return to the airport for my flight to Perth, the reception staff arranged an airport shuttle directly to the airport ( $12), probably the cheapest and easiest way of getting there.
I fully recommend this hotel to Solo travellers and groups alike.

Enjoyt the stunning city !

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2009

I chose this hotel because it is close to China town and I like the late night atmosphere after a long day of meetings in Sydney. Its good to be able to walk to restaurants and shops that are open late, and with plenty of people around. This hotel is opposite a cute little Japanese restaurant that is good for a beer and Obento box.
The hotel provides good basic accommodation but is lacking in those little touches that make hotels seem special places to stay. Also, I had to run the hot water for quite a long time in the morning before the shower warmed up. The reception staff were friendly enough. This wouldn't be my number one choice but I wouldn't recommend against it either.

We stayed through New Year and it was a fantastic location! We could walk to all the major attractions and public transportation. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a great place for a family stay in Sydney center, with Tumbalong park nearby for the kids to play. The studio was fine, but we upgraded to a one bedroom that was much more spacious and better suited to a family of four.

  • Liked — Location & spacious rooms.
