“good value, good location and great breakfast”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

if you book through trivago you can get a room for around $79 which is about as good as it gets for Sydney.
The rooms are small, a bit worn but everything works as it should. The laundry is useful. Breakfast if $13 for a buffet. So scoff a lot and you don't need lunch!
I've stayed there 3 times now and would have been there tonight except i screwed a booking up and they were booked out. Now in Bondi shores hotel which is the polar opposite.

Amazing place, staff are good and know their stuff, rooms are always clean and tidy, location really not bad at all, a short walk to the actual Cross.
Have stayed here many times over the years.
Would not hesitate to recommend it to travellers looking for good quality rooms. Location, ambience and affordability.

Room Tip: stay on the cross side, better air flow there, a bit noisier but worth it for the sights and sounds.

I was very disappointed overall. I arranged two rooms for myself and my 4 friends for a night out in the cross.
Arrived to a smelly/ musty and ex smokey outdated building.
Annoying stairs to negotiate despite using the lifts.
Arrived to the rooms which were old but appeared clean. Considering what was paid for both rooms $718 it was expensive for the quality. My tv didn't work but I didn't really care about that.
As I jumped into bed after my night out I found multiple pubic hairs on my pillow, then located the other pillow on the bed found more public hairs under that pillow. So disgusting. I was embarrassed for my friends. Won't be returning.

This is a great area to stay, close to King Cross and other attractions. On check in the staff were very friendly and helpful despite a mix up in the booking dates which was our fault, not the hotels. The manager assisted us in supporting our refund claim from Lastminute.com which duly arrived. The comfortable entrance area belies what exits in the rooms above. Ours was a large L shape room, on a corner with an extra bed. It was clean but worn. We were on the main street and intersection and the noise that night prevented any sleep at all. The window a/c unit wailed all night to add to the racket. The hotel and our room are in need of refurbishment, seedy carpets and worn furniture. We still had to negotiate stairs despite using the lifts. The upside is the location, really helpful staff, proximity to local transport, free WiFi and cheap tariff.

This hotel is situated in one of the best places in Sydney. Located near several attractions and easy access to the city center. Myself and my friend stayed there for 2 nights at room #321 (twin room) and we don't have a good opinion about this hotel. First of all, the toilets were too close to the washing basin and it was not comfortable. It takes a lot of time for the hot water shower to come in the morning. Secondly, the television was working on the first day when we arrived and after that it stopped working. Moreover, the morning breakfast buffet was the same each day. They didn't make any changes in the buffet. We had to eat the same thing which was served on the previous day. The property does not have its own parking facility and people would need to park their cars at a pay parking site which would cost them approximately $20 a day. The hotel is good for those who want to crash for a night. Rooms are average and I wouldn't recommend this hotel for those who are on their honeymoon. Good for bachelors and small friend groups. A plus point for this hotel is that it is close to King Cross Street where you will find some really good dinners and strip clubs. Hope this review helps in your decision making. Cheers!

Mature well travelled couple from NSW just staying one night and at the price a bit apprehensive but will return. The rooom was clean, coffee/tea shampooo etc, staff friendly and helpful, close to the city, bus at door and breakfast was fine. Bit of night life noise being next to Kings Cross but we stayed on a week night so no real bother. It would have been more expensive to stay in a back packers double with bathroom. Seniors special rate of $99 with buffer breakfast- a bargain.
