We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of March, and really liked this hotel. It's in a great location in the Rocks, close to some lovely shops, cafes, restaurants and the market. And it's just a short walk to the most beautiful harbour in the world!
We arrived at about 7.30am and were given a room within a few minutes, which was great after a 24 hour journey. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The room was on the small side and the furniture was looking a little tired, but this didn't detract from our stay - there were far more exciting things to go and see in the city! We liked the generous supply of tea/coffee etc, the free biscuits and the fact that the mini bar was a normal fridge which we could fill with our own food and drink - far better than those awful sensor-type fridges that you daren't remove anything from for fear of being charged $10 for a bottle of water!
The rooftop pool was lovely - we didn't use it as we didn't have time, but the view was amazing!
Would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a hotel in a quiet spot but central for eating out etc. However, it was on the pricey side compared with other hotels we've stayed in in Australia, so we've marked it down for value on that basis.
