“This hotel is O.K., I would stay again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

I stayed at this hotel for a night due to the international transit following morning. The standard room I book was small, but clean. The bed was comfortable, and the room was fitted with a large flat TV, air conditioning, the coffee/tea facility. No breakfast bar, but this is not an issue for me because I can get something to eat at the airport anyway.The airport shuttle costs $8. (The taxi costed me $20 to get to this hotel from airport at night.)

What else do you expect for the airport hotel? To me, this hotel is O.K. I would stay again.

If you are a high-maintenance traveller, stay somewhere else. This hotel is not for you.

Room Tip: Soap bar and hairdryer are provided, but no shampoo. The rooms facing the road are noisy. The hotel...

This is a very unique hotel, that is perfect for a short stay near Sydney aiport. Is a very clean hotel and 10 minutes away from the Airport by Shuttle.
You need to be prepared is to have a room , where the Shower and the toillet are in the compartiment. But as I have mentioned all is very clean.

We stayed at this hotel expecting the worse as the reviews on here are so bad. We were actually very pleasantly surprised. It would seem most reviewers have turned to trip advisor to complain and those who had an OK experience have not bothered to write about it. The receptionist did have a sarcastic nature which could be misunderstood as rudeness if you do not know how to take it. The rooms are small but had everything we needed for a comfortable night’s stay. Our room and lining was clean. The wi-fi was free and fast. The shower was hot and the water pressure was good. We booked our transfer with the hotel to the airport, it left on time at 5 am and it was just a 5 minute dive which was very convenient. Not too sure if we would agree to it being a 4 star hotel but it is a fine choice if needing a place to rest before or after a flight.

Our room had everything we needed and was clean and modern. Excellent bed. Flat-screen tele was good. Air-con worked well. It was fine for a night or two and will be better when restaurant is completed. However some lovely cafe's in Firth St only a block away. Sound-proofing was non-existent however - could hear conversations and snoring next-door. I disagree with some of the other reviews about it being the worst hotel ever - I have stayed in heaps worse than this!

This hotel was chosen because it was close to the airport for an overnight stopover. It was further than expected for a hotel called "Airport". I agree with other comments made about the entrance - it was not obvious. On a very noisy road so little sleep was had. It was cheaper than some other similar hotels but lacked a bit in cleanliness. We arrived earlier than checkin time (it was an early flight) and there was no secure place to leave bags. They were put on a trolley in a thoroghfare out the back. Shuttle to the airport was on time (in fact early).

Room Tip: Choose elsewhere or at least ask for a room away from the road

Fortunately for this place there's a steady stream of unsuspecting folk looking for a budget stay close to the airport. Reading their online ads, the rooms sound pleasant and comfortable but that certainly was not our experience. The management must surely be blind to the concept of attracting return business. .
It's on a busy highway so traffic noise is a major issue. As well as that, the walls are paper thin so we experienced much disturbance from the people next door.
The renovations appear poorly designed and shoddily finished. Tiny bathrooms. Had to put the kettle on the floor and plug it in behind the bedside table.
No blanket on the bed even though it's winter.
The woman in the office was astoundingly rude.
We'll never return.

If you like terrible service, rude staff and and pubic hair in your bed from the dirty sheets that dont get changed stay at the air port hotel by all means. If not i would find another hotel.
