I had also read mixed reviews on this hotel, but as prices are so high in Sydney I thought it would suffice as we were planning on spending the days tramping the streets not sitting in our hotel room. We were very impressed with this hotel. You couldn't wish for a better location to walk around the city. Bridge less than 5 mins, Opera house 5 mins walk.Shops/cafes and restaurants all very close by. Request a top floor room as it can be quite noisy. We were in Room 827 which had a view of the harbour bridge out of 2 windows. The room was spacious with a very comfy bed. A small bath and overhead shower. Tea and coffee making facilities. We didn't eat at the hotel as you are less than a minute to great cafes and restaurants. Yes the bathroom is a little dated and tired [and I've stayed in far worse] but if you want a great location and plan to be out and about then you can't go wrong. Taxi to the airport was $48.
Pool on the roof top a little small but you do get a view of the bridge and the opera house. Brilliant, loved it.
