Did a family trip to Sydney to celebrate the end of the year and do a bit of Christmas shopping. The hotel is conveniently located walking distance from the CBD and Cockle Bay. The room was adequate but getting on the smaller side for a family with nearly two teenage kids. Booked the room on line in advance with a great discount considering the time of year we stayed. Good pool on the top level overlooking George Street.

At AUD 279 per night (13th Feb) for a tiny room on 5th Floor without enough room to open a suitcase and avoid falling over it - very poor value and to add insult to injury, the hotel had the cheek to charge AUD 10 per hour for in-room internet connection. Bathrooms look like they haven't been updated since the 70's - chrome worn off the taps, 70's tiled floors, veneer falling off bathroom door. Clueless check-in staff whom had no idea which way the rooms faced.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

We traveled with a tour group and as the road was badly congested due to the rush hour, we arrived late at the hotel and were late for our dinner. It was almost 9pm by then! And to make the matter worse, the concierge at the hotel didn't want to help us store our luggages so we could head straight for dinner and later come back for the check in. He said we didn't make any prior arrangement and that there were supposed to be charges before hand. So we asked for help from some top management who did help us in the end. So we had dinner and came back to the hotel, the same concierge had to be sarcastic and made some remarks. He said "Oh, so you have been gone for almost 2 hours now.." and when our tour leader was about to reply him, he continued by saying "Oh, you know what I don't really care.." honestly there are so many hotels to choose from and how do you stand out from others? People and service makes the difference I would say.

I do not understand how much Sydney hotel prices have gone up since I was there last, back in 2007.

This one was the only option I could find, at 160 Euros, despite booking well in advance.

Nice enough room otherwise. Fortunately the guy at check out was friendly the exact opposite of the one at check in.

TV was not working, but I only found out just before leaving, didn't need to watch it before so I just mentioned it at check-out.

No free Wi-Fi or free Internet computer in the lobby.

Otherwise it is very close to central station and some of the intercity buses (we were taking one on our way to Canberra).

Overall I would still recommend this hotel, but only if you can get a better price, to me it's worth 120 Euros approximately.

At the check in a young employee told us that we "cannot use the debit card " and he needs us to provide him a credit card. It was the first time ever when I've heard such a thing . When I told him that I don't have a credit card an try to explain that this never happened to us before he told me "TO SHUT UP " and listen to what he had to say. In the end we've learned that we can use our debit card but the deposit will be returned in cash.
Another thing was that with 2 kids we've been given a room on a smoking floor , without being asked if we are smokers or it will be bothering for any of us. This matter was solved the next day by the deputy manager who was very polite and helpfull and offered us another room on a non smoking floor and with a better view - Many thanks again ! In the first room we found 2 jumpy ,pretty big, happy spiders in one of the beds.
In one of the days the house keeping forgot to leave soaps but after calling the Reception someone came with them in less than 5 minutes.
The breakfast was good and assorted.
My kids loved the blue light in the pool in the evening.
For those traveling by train - there is an underground tunnel which links the hotel with the train station.

Room Tip: Higher floors are less noisy Specify smoking or no smoking floor
