“Don't look anywhere else!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

Such a great place to stay. Central to everything....and the room was great as was the staff! Really couldn't fault anything so don't look any further for a fabulous hotel. The price and location is the best!

Room Tip: Just a wonderful place to stay!

I've stayed in quite a few different hotels in the Sydney CBD, but this is the one I'll be returning to!
Travelled here for business, and felt very comfortable and safe (which can sometimes be an issue when you're a woman travelling alone). The staff were fantastic, and I felt welcome every time I returned to the room. They are so easy to deal with, and so helpful - and those waffles at breakfast are delicious! Everything was really friendly, even down to the cute little note that explained where they keep the ironing board.
Location: The location is really close to the middle of the shopping district, and the room had lovely views towards Hyde Park. It was fantastic to be able to stay so close to everything. The only slight downside was a little bit of traffic noise (the windows are not quite as soundproof as some hotels), but it's no big deal.
For business, there were plenty of powerpoints for charging devices, and a reasonable desk to work at if you need it. The room was a great size, with plenty of space, so it was really easy to work in there without feeling cramped.
Like I mentioned before, this has made my choice of where to stay in Sydney a really easy one. I'll be back, for sure.

Room Tip: Some rooms are directly above a pub, so you might want to go higher up to a loft room if you're...

Stayed recently on a Monday night with my wife. Room was nice and clean, comfortable bed though a tad noisy due to local traffic. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Nice option for a reasonably priced night away.

My partner and I just got back from four nights in this hotel, and couldn't have had a better experience. We stayed in the loft apartment, which was gorgeous and very comfortable; well worth the price we paid. Our room also had a great view over Hyde Park. I loved the black and green colour throughout the hotel, and my partner loved the coffee (as well as being able to get a coffee 24/7!). Wi-fi was also free-of-charge, which is a rarity in Australia.

The hotel is in an excellent location, right in the CBD, and only a short walk from the train station, shops, and everything you need.

Last but not least, all of the staff were very friendly and helpful, never sounding forced or pretentious. We always got a friendly smile and hello whenever we went out or returned to the hotel.

We had no negative experiences at this hotel at all, and will definitely stay here again whenever we are in Sydney!

Room Tip: If you've got the money spare, go for the loft apartment. You won't regret it.

I stayed here recently with my co-worker for a work event. We only spent one night, but wish it was more. The staff were super friendly from the get go. Making the booking was easy over email and then the service' excellence continued when we arrived.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Room is very large and comfortable. Artworks and theme is inspiring.
Special mention for the brekkie. Thick cut toast, cooked perfectly and smudges with avocado and pepper. The perfect brekkie for me. Who even makes that for you anywhere? YUM! Coffee was great too.
We have booked in to stay again already!

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe!

We are particularly happy that you enjoyed our home style, simple-but-tasty breakfast options - we think you made a good choice with the avo-mash on toast, it's a long standing fave of ours!

It will be so nice to have you back soon - we look forward to seeing you then!

I travelled to this cool, modern hotel with my sister for two nights of shopping and touring. The staff are fun, friendly and professional. Located in the heart of the CBD, the hotel was perfectly situated a short walk to the best shopping districts, and a free bus ride down to the Rocks and Circular Quay. The staff were knowledgeable of the area, very helpful and offered a personal and quality service. The Belgium waffles and in house barista out of this world!! Didn't mind the traffic noise as it is expected in the city. Bathroom floors could have been cleaner and the extra large shower head was too much for the tiny drain so our feet had a bit of a swim - but other than that, we could not have been happier with the great room and terrific service.

That's the first time our Belgian waffles have received an online mention - yay! They are SO worthy, as you know. The whole team here rues the day we ever had our lovely Belgian supplier ever walked into our hotel with samples of his home made waffles - they are simply too good to resist!

We are so glad that you and your sister enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to you coming to visit again in the future. Take care until then!

I have stayed here twice in the last couple of weeks - firstly by myself to attend a conference and secondly with my husband to do a few things in the city. It was perfect! Being just a block from Museum station it is great for Southern Highlands visitors coming by train. And the location is handy to everything either by foot or a short bus trip - shops, restaurants, the Art Gallery and Circular Quay. I really liked the fact that it was small and staff were so cheerful and friendly - did not have the sterile corporate atmosphere of the larger hotels. But the best thing was being able to ring down in the morning and have a barista made good coffee and generous servings of toast delivered to the room promptly and at a very reasonable cost. No need to pack the coffee making equipment any more for that first morning coffee! We loved looking out the windows at the comings and goings in this busy part of down. The décor was fresh and restful. On both occasions I received an upgrade to a deluxe room and both were lovely. 11am checkout is great too - we didn't feel like staff were hovering around waiting for us to leave. We have at last found our city bolt-hole!

Room Tip: The corner rooms are larger and have baths. The street side rooms might be noisier perhaps (althoug...
