Commensurate with the advertised 4 star grading, this hotel has an acceptable bar and restaurant (with pleasant but pedestrian offerings), a hotel gym, but no pool. Located basically at a very busy Kings Cross intersection and on top of Kings Cross station, it was busy and noisy on Saturday night, but pretty good the rest of the week. Restaurants abound, Fitness First and Coles supermarket across the road, but many girly & backpacker bars dotted the close proximity.
Our room in the upper floors were quieter, but I did note many rooms on this semi-circular building faced straight out to the intersection. The rooms facing the harbour have an amazing unobstructed view of the Bridge, tower and Opera House, a view I have not seen from many other inner Sydney standard rooms.
The rooms are normal sized, with typical marble tiled bathroom, with energy saving lighting. Furnishings were in good state, bed very comfortable with a good choice of soft and firm pillows. It looks like the facility has been maintained, re-painted but not revamped since 2005, as its' carpets were cleaned but dated and stained. If it had new carpet, the rooms would feel far superior.
