My husband was booked in to this place for a couple of weeks on business, I decided to join him for a long weekend, I was so looking forward to a weekend away. It was lovely to see my husband but the hotel was awful. I had read other reviews about pubic hairs in the bathroom, mould on the walls, stains on the carpets and thought it can't be that bad.......well I can tell you it was.
The room was awful, felt unclean and the bathroom was worse, and yes there were pubic hairs in the bath, it seemed the bathrooms were not cleaned, they changed the towels each day, emptied the bins and folded the toilet paper in to a neat triangle....but as for cleaning there appeared there was none.
The bed was very uncomfortable and you can hear the conversation from the room next door quite clearly, which was great at 2 o'clock in the morning!!!!
The hotel seemed very dated and old, there does not seem to be any upkeep of the place, there was a restuarant but it was never opened whilst we were there, so no where to have breakfast, there was quite a walk to the nearest cafe. There was only one person at the front desk that I saw once on the monday, no-one there at weekends, and I did see a security guard one evening.
If you want a comfortable clean stay in Sydney this is not the place for you. My husband has now moved to a a more cleaner and comfortable hotel.
I will end on a positive though, there was free on-site parking undercover and the hotel had a lift which is good if you have a suitcase.
