Given the tone of some of the reviews, I was fearing the worst, but as it happened, the Capitol Square Hotel satisfied all my needs. No doubt the rooms are small, but the bed in my room was fantastic and I rate a comfortable bed above all. There was also an ice-tray in the mini-bar, something one does not often... More

The hotel was located in CBD area, just a little walk to Paddy's/City Market, even you can reach QVB in just 10 minutes walk. It has Light Train stop access right at the back of the hotel building which near also to Sydney Central Station. The room was nice, clean, comfortable, even quite small size wise. But fair enough for... More

I booked a week accommodation here and being in Haymarket this s a fantastic location to everywhere you want to go and see. But the rooms are small, old and basic. The view from m room is of the shops undercover, nothing spectacular. It has TV, although Chanel 9 is crap and you can't watch it. I believe there is... More

Given some of the reviews I was a little worried but compared to other hotels in the area it was good value. The room was comfortable, clean and roomy. The bathroom needed a bit a bit of work but it was still clean.

I stayed here for one night with a group of friends. We got 2 rooms and paid $68/each. The rooms were warm and comfortable and fine for one night's stay. The bathroom was very small and old but was clean. The shower took a very long time to heat up (10+ minutes). The corridors outside were quite shabby and had... More
