This hotel would probably not disappoint. I have stayed twice recently and will probably return. I had a superior room both times, with free internet and few other frills. (the promised Evian water only appears on the first day of your stay, which seems a bit tight-fisted). The room was quite small but OK; the bed is comfortable and the shower works well. It's a shame there isn't a table to put a room service tray on, as there is enough room, and the desk is only big enough to work on. The room is under-lit, but that seems to be standard everywhere-I don't know why! It does seem odd that there isn’t a luggage rack in the rooms as every other hotel seems to have them. They did bring one when I asked. They also brought a blanket when I asked, too-after telling me there was one in the cupboard (which, of course there wasn't, or I would not have rung down for one!) I was pleased on my return to find one in my cupboard, so at least they learned from that!
The reception service and the room service aren't brilliant. On my last stay, on one morning they forgot my alarm call -which could have been a real problem if I had a place to catch! - and on the other morning my room service breakfast was wrong. However the concierge staff always seemed to be lovely, and anxious to please, which makes up for other staff’s deficiencies.
The location right next to the station is very convenient, although the area's a bit seedy and wouldn't be ideal for tourists. And the price isn't too bad if you can get a special deal on the hotel's web site. Which accounts for my rating the hotel four stars, as other central Sydney hotels are such rip-offs.
