“F1 Mascot review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Room was clean, comfortable and quiet considering its proximity to the airport. Very handy location, we enjoyed our stay and will use this facility again. Only minor issue was the walking distance to Mascot train station but the taxi fare was minor.

I stayed here a couple of times when flying in and out of the country. It's cheap and has everything you need for a night (although the bathroom is more like a tiny wetroom). I would like to recommend NOT to go to Krispy Kreme, KFC or Maccas oposite the hotel but to get the free shuttle bus to the Graphic and Arts Club around the corner. The food is amazing and it's got a very cool atmosphere for a club!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I needed to stopover in Sydney for the night and chose to stay near the Airport in the Formule 1, at Mascot. The room was spartan but clean and with a comfortable bed and TV. All in all, a good deal for Sydney, and handy for onward travel. Vending machines are at all levels for quick refreshments, with McDonalds and KFC right next door, less than 50 meters. Can walk to airport T2 & T3, or get the shuttle.

Room Tip: From the International Airport to Formule 1 in Ross Smith Street it cost me $14 plus 4 = $18 by Taxi...

Just a quick taxi ride from the airport, and we were at the hotel. The staff were very friendly, and check-in was a breeze - took literally 30 seconds. The room was nice and contained all that we needed - air conditioning, TV, shower, and comfortable bed. Trying to use the hand basin was difficult because the shower curtain blocked it (and was wet from our shower), but its a minor niggle. In the morning, there was a good cheap continental breakfast, check-out was as easy as dropping off the key, and the taxi phone allowed us to return to the airport with ease. A good stay overall, for a good price, and would come back again.

Formule 1 hotels are all so similar, and they are cheap, so the expectation is not of luxury, the expectation is for them to be clean and comfortable, which this hotel is. I wouldn't spend a week there, but one night before an early flight, I would definitely do it again. An easy walk to the airport even with bags and kids, effortless check in and out, no dramas, would recommend, just remember it's not aiming to be 5 star!!
