This is a great little hotel. Located on Double Bay, a suburb of Sydney. It's a 10 minute walk to the train station (up a pretty good hill) and a 5 minute walk to the ferry.
We had a deluxe room, which was spotlessly clean, with a high ceiling, although not huge. Our third night there (unplanned) we had a standard room. These face an interior courtyard so have no windows, and are quite small, but again, spotlessly clean and with all the amenities. We found both room sizes perfectly adequate, as all we needed it for was to sleep.
Double Bay is a very upscale section of Sydney, and has some beautiful architecture to look at, as well as boutique shopping and some great restaurants. It's about a 15 min train ride from the Circular Quay train station, which we found perfectly convenient.
Located in the downstairs of this hotel is a small restaurant. It serves asian food for lunch and dinner, but is the location where the hotel offers their breakfast offerings in the mornings. Our room rate included a continental breakfast, and it was the best we had our entire visit. It was all you could eat cereals, breads, fresh fruits, juices, coffee and tea. For a small price ($5.50 AU) you could have a hot cooked breakfast.
What really made this hotel special was the staff. They were wonderful. Very knowledgeable about Sydney and many other areas, even as far away as Cairns and Townsville. They were happy to let you check your e-mail in the evenings no charge (no web surfing though, and we didn't see an internet cafe anywhere nearby). We got advice on car rentals, traveling to the Blue Moutains - everything.
I highly recommend this small hotel. It made a wonderful first impression of Sydney.
