Staying in this hotel at the moment. The rate is reasonable and because of that, I've just extended my stay for another night. Location is great. Short walk to Kings Cross. Ask for an upper level room to get a view of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. The room is small, but more than adequate if you're just looking... More

This is a budget hotel so you do need to keep that in mind when planning to stay here. Location wise, it's a nice 20 minute walk from the Pitt St main shopping street. It is close to the red light district so walking around late at night especially if you're a single female is probably not super wise, however... More

For an inexpensive place to stay, I highly recommend this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The gentleman who greeted us when we arrived was very courteous and helpful. Our room was spotless. The bed was very comfortable. We had a view of the harbour bridge from our room. Would definitely stay here again.

Last minute booking and was pleasantly surprised by the room. Comfortable bed with quite a surprising view of Sydney. Only let down was the reception service was fairly lacking and the shower design left a bit to be desired but understandable in the small space available.

Myself and 2 friends went to Sydney to attend a function. So we knew our days would be long, and we would hardly be at the hotel anyway. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the beds and bathroom were clean.

One of tiniest rooms I have ever stayed in but if you are only there for 2 days like we were then you'll hardly ever be in your room so it doesn't really matter. Really handy for kings cross station and food options. Watch out for cockroaches in the bathroom though!

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighborhood Profile
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
