superb location a few hundred yards from Circular Quay, The Rocks and Opera House, also at the start of George Street and great shopping!
We arrived around 9.30pm after 18 hours travelling to be told we had a few minutes to order dinner as the restaurant was closing, no offer of an extention, bar meal or room service, so we walked to Circular Quay and found Quay extra, open 24 hours with a great fish & chips washed down with a superb Chardoney.
our room was on the ground floor, small and dark, actally quite opressive and ok for 2 nights but would drive you mad after much longer. The bathroom was cavelike and very small and the wardrobe was so small we left our clothes in our suitecases as there was no room.
The Wi Fi didnt work in our room due to in being "boutique and a conversion" a real shame actually, i had my laptop so was able to use the cable connection but IPads? no chance. Breakfast was downstairs and continental buffet, ok choice and fine, you can pay extra for a cooked breakfast, starting at $5 each. the small bar is located in reception and is a good place to enjoy a drink before dinner, the restaurant offers a dinner menu but the tables are tiny and the room a bit dark, we didnt bother and found a fabulous chines on the quay.
The hotel is good value and brilliantly located, i think the boutique thing is maybe an aquired taste but the staff were fantastic and very attentive, really couldnt fault them. this is a perfect place for a short stay close to ll the atractions and shopping.
Overall a great hotel, we would stay again but only for a few days
