We were passing through Sydney and chose this hotel mainly because the website stated that there was carparking available. It would have been helpful to know that the hotel does not have its own facility, but instead directs you to the hotel next door (at $75 per day). Further complicating the problem, there is nowhere to park on Castlereagh St while you check in. The receptionist did not have any other parking suggestions, so we were left to stand in the foyer and google solutions ourselves. We ended up leaving the car in an underground mulit-level across the park ($35 per day), which was a 15 minute walk away. My lift key didn't work and needed to be re-coded.
The room was in need of an update- the carpet was lifting and worn in areas of joins, and there were several light globes which needed replacing (the receptionist tried to replace a couple of them, but didn't have the correct globe). The bed, however, was wonderfully comfortable, with nice linen. It was fairly noisy, but I that's to be expected of the CBD.
We had breakfast included, and it was pretty good! Room service only, from the little takeaway cafe downstairs. Breakfast wraps and toasties, and good DiBella coffee.
The location was excellent for access to buses and for attractions.
While overall we weren't unhappy with our stay, we probably won't stay here again. We usually drive when we come to Sydney, and the parking issue was a real sticking point for us.
