“Great Location, good value, just a little tired”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

I booked a 2 night stay in an Executive King Suite. Considering the price I paid ($165pn) I thought it was very good value for such a centrally located hotel.

Ok it didn't have a swimming pool or room service but given I was there on a quick business trip I couldn't have used these anyway.

Room a decent size & comfortable bed with good sheets. Whilst it was clean the carpet was very stained. The bathroom lighting was appalling - No good for putting on make-up. Not good quality bathroom soaps/shampoos. No vanity set.

Had a small fridge for snacks/breakfast I bought from the local supermarket. Could've done with a microwave.

Room Tip: Definately go for the Executive King Suite

The bays water is fantastically located within a minute or so of kings cross station. We have stayed a couple of times now and find the reception staff very helpful and pleasant; the rooms clean and modern; and the proximity to both darlinghurst and Potts point excellent for the restaurant and cafe scene. The rooms are described as small- we would say adequate. They have all the amenities, and provided you are not travelling with miles of luggage, there is a comfortable fit. We will stay there again! If you intend to go back, don't forget to ask for the loyalty card as it gives you discounts on future accommodation and parking and allows you free Internet use.

This hotel is not the very best but for the price you could not worse.

This is a top of the line mid range hotel. The rooms are small but comfortable. The elevator is slow but the staff is extremely kind and helpful. The beds as stated are very comfortable. The bathrooms are small and there is only a shower.

The location is in the Kings Cross district. It is a short walk from the Kings Cross station.

This is an ideal hotel for singles, adventurers, young couples, and couples without children. You must understand that Kings Cross is not the neighborhood for kids. Although this hotel and its immediate neighbors are upscale, the general neighborhood is the red light district of Sydney.

The hotel has a small lobby and a cafe attached to the front for a quick bite to eat in the morning. There is a computer for general use in the lobby. The internet in the room is subscription only unless you booked by the hotel website. If you book by the website then the internet is free. There is a guest laundry room. Shuttle service to the airport is available for 12 AUD per person.

There are many bars, lounges, and eateries around the hotel.

Stop at the lounge Awkward for an always great time and drinks with fresh juice.

Room Tip: Do not get a room facing the street. There are lots of bars on this street and the music/people wil...

One night stay on the 5th floor. Rooms are very compact but very clean and practical. Ensuite was very small. Bed very comfy, quiet nights sleep.
Would stay again if only for 1 night, any more might be too much for such a small room.

A pleasant surprise - the room was modern and freshly painted. The bed was extremely comfortable, Some people have said their room was small - ours was, but the size of room is mentioned on the hotel's web site and we knew what to expect. Very friendly staff.

Main floor deluxe king room was perfect for our needs. They have laundry room facilities with newer machines. Buy tokens at front desk. A small, clean boutique type hotel with very pleasant and helpful service and located wonderfully. If you are limiting your budget & can't stay in Darling Harbour this is a best bet. Bus at door takes you to the Opera House area. Don't miss breakfast at the tiny "miracle" spot adjacent......they deliver to the lobby. Will not hesitate to stay at the Bayswater again.
