It's basic. It's cheap. It's convenient. It's comfortable. For an overnighter like a show or a shpping trip it's great. Just one block from Martin Place and Wynyard Railway Station, the windows have brick-wall "views", and there's no lift (heritage building). But at the price it's the best option, most times. It's hard to find (one door frontage), but worth the search. Book early.
Like a challenge to get into small spaces? Well this is the place for you! With a ridiculously small access being awkward enough to get a suitcase and backpack into on its own then the fun of getting inside is even futher increased by the only way up is via a crazy steep stairwell as there are NO elevators at all either! Photos will be attached with review! One person of a couple that arrived as we did had to find alternative accomodation as she has a wheelchair. Well the staff didn't want to hear from the upset partner that they should advertise this place as non stairgoer friendly so as we were a group of 3 couples and only needed 1 nights stay we would give it a go anyway as we had already booked and paid! So Up the stairs we climb hoping noone needs to come back down and into our room which was right next door to the the communal kitchen facilities which by the way is Awesome if you like to be woken by people making a coffee or snacks all night with the beeping of the microwave and clunking of cups and dishes in the sink! Oh and its like having your own talkback radio stuck on with the hotel communal sitting area just outside room with your non soundproof doors. Out of the 3 rooms we as a group hired not one bathroom had a door that wasnt broken and just to top it off My mate found a cockroach near his bed so decided to take it to reception to emphasise his unhappiness with our accomodation! Funny story but they didn't want the roach at their desk either!! After an awful nights sleep i needed a wake up shower to find that our water heater was freezing and not to mention gross mould build up around the sink photos will be attached!. Also a couple of days after we left they charged non existant mini bar charges to our friends room. They were refunded after enquiry and complaints but made us concerned about what they did with our credit card details they photo copied front and back! Also a warning with the bathroom doors there are warning signs that steam from bathroom sets off fire alarms and that there will ne a $1700 fine charged to customer if they are set off! Lucky we had no hot water! For cheap and just needing a bed for the night its ok but next time would spend a few more dollars for something better. It is a good location for walking to opera house and cruise departure and central for shopping and bars.…
What a brilliant hotel in the centre of Sydney. 50 metres from channel 7 studio's and The Lindt Cafe this hotel is superb value. We stayed in a twin bedded room, with TV, free Wifi, tea making, fridge & aircon, which was nice as we had cold weather. Very clean room, solid but very comfy bed, looks like its been newly painted. Full large kitchen, cooker, fridge ect. Large sitting area with TV. The receptionist spoke English and l'm sure would be helpful if anything was needed. All in all a very good cheap clean hotel. Sorry no pics but genuine comments. Oh in case you can't climb stairs this may not be for you.
Read bad reviews of this hotel but I found it clean, comfortable and quiet - as a central city hotel could be. Bed linen and towels clean, good hot shower with jel, shampoo etc. tea and coffee making and a small fridge and a TV. There was also a communal lounge and dining room with everything you could need to prepare a meal although there were plenty of restaurants around. The only minus was no lift so lots of stairs to climb.
We stayed here some weeks ago. It was one of the last free places in Sydney. It was cheap but under the ground level wit ha small window. The room was small and ok for the short stay. The service was ok and we didn't try the breakfast. As one of the last options you can stay here but i wouldn't recommend it really warm
