“Lower your expectations to your budget.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

Our family of 3 spent a week here. The room was adequate (we were sleeping and showering there) and an ideal base to explore Sydney from. The staff were friendly and helpful and we had nothing to complain about. If you are expecting resort conditions pay for a resort.

This hotel is disgusting. The rooms are dirty, the shower was shocking and my hisband I did not get any sleep because we could not relax in this dirty place. We would have changed hotels however we were just staying here one night before we left for Fiji. It was a good thing we had our sleeping bags with us because that is what we slept in.

Dirty room, dirty bathroom, smell of smoke everywhere!
Staff was ok, friendly and with knowledge about neighbourhood.
Overall, the low price is not worth staying in this hotel. I suggest improvements in room services and refurbishment of the rooms.
