“Terrible, Worse than terrible, hairy bed with crumb on it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

This is the worse hotel that one can actually stay, it is more like backpacker place than a hotel. Rooms was decently big, yet there were some crumb covered under the blanket. Just letting lead to wonder, is everything actually cleaned after the previous resident check out? The carpet was sticky and not clean. Most importantly, no taxi would willing to travel there at night if you are at pyrmont area. Seriously, if you are travelling as a couple, please don stay here!

This hotel is in a great location but is cheap and nasty.
The room is small also a small tv and no other facilities. (fridge)
Al most no service provided at reception staff, but it is handy to the city.

Hotel located very close to trains and buses. Prompt check in.
We were given a room on the sixth floor with a view of the harbour. Room vas very spacious as it had disabled facilities. Excellent value for money. Would be prepared to stay again.

Service is impeccable! Such friendly and helpful staff which made my short trip really enjoyable. The room was clean and I even had a great view of Darling Habour. All and all it was a great hotel! I will recommend it to others and come back to stay there too. :)

A great, clean choice away from the main hustle and bustle of the cross. Bed wasn't the most comfortable but u get what u pay from. Room was quiet, no noise from the street or other guests. Parking was only $20 a night but a bit of a walk from the hotel.
