Perfect spot for a quick night in Sydney. Easy check in with courteous staff and a very clean room with a very comfy bed. Very quiet inside the room considering the inner city location. Nice rain shower

駅に近く、交通の便はとても良い。近くにコンビニやスーパーがあり長期滞在にも向いていた。エスカレーターがないので荷物が重たい人は低層階をリクエストしておくのも良いかも。キッチンに包丁がなかった。日によっては隣のバックパッカー向け宿がうるさかったが、スタッフに伝えると対処してくれた。This accomodation is near to the station and there are a conveniance store, a super market, and good restaurants.

The most reasonably priced of similar hotels near the city centre and you get what you pay for. Clean rooms. Not too noisy. But cold in winter, fittings and shower are old and a lot of stairs if you have heavy luggage.

Another stay at this hotel. Very clean and comfortable room and helpful, friendly staff. The hotel is very close to many good eating places, particularly if you enjoy Lebanese cuisine. And they have some car parking at reasonable rates (for inner city Sydney, that is).

This accommodation was reasonably priced and central the rooms are outdated but were very clean, the staff were amazing. Staff Virginia & Chris were very friendly and helpful, nothing was a problem. Stairs were a bit of a mission with luggage and kids however Chris was very helpful, we would stay again thanks

While the hotel rooms are outdated, the service of the staff made up for this. Everything was clean and it was a good business trip. I will recommend to fellow travelers needing cheaper accommodation in Sydney

Clean and tidy room. Staff (Virginia) was extremely friendly and helpful, even helping me find a parking spot and flag down a taxi.. More parking spots would be a bonus. $20 to park off street. Would stay again

Good and close to Sydney centre. Handy car park underneath. We only spent one night and the accommodation sufficed for our purpose. However I believe there was an issue with our heating (split system) and did not like fron door handles of rooms with the collars.
