Reviewed November 25, 2012

Four of us stayed in the one bedroom apartment. Friendly greeting and helped us organise transport back to the airport that was much cheaper than a taxi and he knew where he was going. We asked for an extra single bed and they happily accommodated us. Could have done with more towel rails and more shampoo/conditioner. Was a good location to get to Darling Harbour or Circular Quay, we would walk there. If you dislike a steep climb, best to use a taxi as the hotel is in a "dip". Their hotel book would have been more useful with places to eat around the hotel. Couldn't hear much traffic noise considering the location. Overall was a great four nights and would stay again next time I'm in Sydney for cheap accommodation.

We stayed at this apartment yet again and still love the convenience of public transport. At Wynard station, there is a Coles supermarket therefore makes it good for your shopping while there. We were there for 4 nights this time. Staff friendly.

Room Tip: We had 306 up on 3 floor. Was a good set out but the 3 different occasions, we have stayed here have...

We were prepared for a less than stellar hotel as we'd paid a budget rate. So we expected few amenities, services and facilities. We didn't expect to be in a room under the Freeway (but those are the breaks) and we were on a low floor too. Also not the best but understandable - especially for the rate we paid.

But - it was dirty. They've apparently cut back on cleaning. Dirty surface and stains on the chairs. And they're also not the best at maintenance and fittings. The towel rail broke off and the phone fell off the wall. And understandably so - seems the only tool the builder had was a hammer so there was a big hole in the wall for the phone cable and another for heat pump.

Budget would have been ok. But dirty and bits breaking - not ok.

Room Tip: If you're going to stay here make it a high floor and get to pre-inspect your room for cleanline...

At $200 for two nights this accommodation was fine. Pay any more you may feel short changed. The room we stayed in was booked several months in advance and I had taken the advice of fellow reviewers avoiding the lower floor rooms. My room quiet (no windows though) and the bed was incredibly comfortably. Apart from sleeping I spent very little time in the room which meant the uninspiring decor was not a problem... Shower could of done with a bit of maintenance but all in all would stay there again.

We had a studio apartment and were very pleased with the standard of presentation and cleanliness. Studio rooms only have a view over Kent St, but are very spacious and well appointed. Kitchen had hotplates and microwave oven, dining table and chairs for two and sofa and TV. Although the freeway runs directly overhead, but this did not worry us as there is very little traffic noise during the night. Within a 10 minute walking distance of Circular Quay and Darling Harbour and a 5 minute walk to Wynyard train station, this is a great location. We were in Sydney for 5 days so bought a MyZone 2 travel card each ($51 per card) and this gives you unlimited travel on trains, ferries, buses and light rail for 7 days and covers travel up to 2 zones. Great value and saves the hassle of needing change for fares.

Stayed for two nights and thought it was fine. Awesome location across the road from Wynyard station and walking to Darling Harbour.
Room was good, though vacuuming didnt reach into all the corners. Strangely enough no flannels given and we didnt get the extra clean towels we asked for.
Would stay there again no worries.
