3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We arrived after walking through drenching rains dragging suitcases. We were greeted and processed and my son got our suitcases to the first floor by the stairs, there is no lift. The advice re food was a couple of blocks even further up the drenched streets so we ordered in. The rooms were clean and tidy but somewhat over crowded.... More

Very close to Central Railway Station and a half hour walk to circular quay and city centre. Easy to recommend. There is a Thai restaurant very close to the hotel that has cheap and excellent food. Cheap Alcohol is a bit of an issue as there are only Bristro Bottle shop's close by and it's expensive

We stay here whenever we can as it is within walking distance of where my children live - Surry Hills and Waterloo - as well as handy to parks, eating places and railway station. Staff went above and beyond their duty, in carrying our bags down to street level on our departure.

I stayed here recently for work. At first I thought the location was a negative but it was quiet and near the Woolpack hotel so that changed my opinion. The room itself was a good size. The bed was essentially two king singles joined which made the middle uncomfortable. There was a lounge - a plus - it was vinyl... More

This building was older than I expected but the room was clean and well set up for us, the front desk staff were friendly and helpful, and we were walking distance to downtown where we needed to be. Overall, pleasant experience.

Friendly staff, very helpful. Family rooms are not so big, but beds are very comfortable. Close to town center (20-30 min walk) and to central railway station. Good value for the location, would recommand this hotel.

We stayed for 3 nights and we're very happy with our stay. Most notably, the staff were very friendly and the apartment was clean, with comfortable beds. Is only a short walk from Central station and Crown St.
