Arrived after a 24 hour flight jet lagged needing a good night sleep not realising into I got to George St Hotel that the place is more a backpackers than a hotel. Like any backpackers the hallways echo through the night? With the pub Scruffy murphy's on the ground floor rocking away to the early hours, the noise from the CBD and building work in the day sleep was hard to find. The room was very basic and I had to share the bathroom/toilet with the floor. Laundry room had me laughing in stitches, its basically a shed on top of the roof what ended up being a great place to hangout with other backpackers with good views of the CBD.
On the positive side, if you'r backpacking with mates! the location in the centre of the CBD is 5 Star. 5 min walk to Darling Harbour, 10 min walk to Central Station and a walk down George St leads to Sydney Harbour. And I've got to say from a later experience the hotel is better situated than Kings Cross and safer too, what matters the end of the day in a strange city.
