I have stayed at this hotel before on business, and found it to be good for what I required. Our experience on the weekend however was different. We asked to be put in a quiet room away from lifts. We were put in a room right next to the lift. The room was OK, but nothing to write home about.
The biggest surprise was breakfast. $46 per person. The buffet was packed - on a Friday morning, and there was hardly any food left - and this was about 8.30 in the morning. My daughter hardly eats anything yet we had to pay $46 for her.
I understand this is Sydney, and yes there is a view of the harbour. Be aware though that you have two fairly steep climbs to get to this hotel from The Rocks. Might be fine for young, fit people however if you are older or have any form of disability, this is a challenge.
We got the hotel on a 'deal' for $330 per night. I really think that for that kind of money breakfast should have been included as it was a total rip off.
