The air-con simply did not work - at all. In Sydney in summer, any room needs functioning air con. Staff offered us a room on the same floor, but that air-con didn't work either. We have stayed here a few times before, and it has been fine (though not tried in summer).

Carved into an historic precinct, this hotel is interesting from the very start. The slightly tired 90s decor is relieved by the fantastic location, marvellous views from level 7 & the unique sensational precinct called The Rocks. It is also a major bonus that there is a very nice pool - a rarity in this expensive & historic area. The suite we had featured most comforts & really just needed a decor freshen-up... but the kitchen was good, living area comfy & bedroom accompanied by excellent size ensuite and WIR - BUT all lifted a notch by the great view over Sudney's glorious harbour! For the positives mentioned, I do recommend this hotel. The Rocks is a must-see for every Sydney visitor - and the Gardens, city, Circular Key, restaurants, markets etc all within a stone's throw are just FUN!!!

Room Tip: Level 7- ask for harbour View

Stayed here with my daughter for a night out at the opera house. From the car park attendant to the front desk staff, everyone was welcoming with a warm smile. We were able to get a late check out and then the wonderful front desk staff held our bags after checkout so that we could wonder around the Rocks for a while.

We stayed in a studio balcony room which provided us with great views of the local historic architecture and fabulous side on views of the harbor bridge and clock tower. The tea and coffee facilities were great. The room was spotless! The bed very comfortable, even the fold out sofa bed my daughter slept in was very comfortable. The breakfast.....we're staying again at the end of February so we'll let you know if things have improved.

My daughter and I cannot say enough about the front desk staff. Smiles that could,outshine the moon and nothing was too much trouble.

We can't wait to stay again at the end of February. This time in a harbor view balcony room! This hotel.is our favorite place to stay in Sydney and would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: Go a balcony room if you can. The added ambience is well worth the extra.

Our family of nine-3 generations-loved this charming hotel. We had 3 harbor view studios for 4 nights. The rooms were much larger than expected with small kitchenettes. The hotel is within walking distance of the Harbor bridge, the opera house, circular quay and many other tourist destinations. There are many restaurants within walking distance. Did I forget to say how clean it was? Yes, maybe it is a little dated, but then the price is right. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

P.S. the wi-fi was only free for 3 hours, and to get any reception you have to go to the computer room.

Room Tip: The harbor view rooms were great. You might want a balcony when the weather is nice.

the location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the Rocks. the bedroom could do with a makeover, it did not look that clean , we found a pair of underpants on the settee, we had a room with a hourbour view , when a cruise liner is in thier is no view. we asked reception to book a taxi for us to take us to the airport, we waited an no taxi turned up, the hotle had forgotten to order one, they then had difficulty in locating one, a receptionist did call one from teh street, the breakfasts were good.

Dear Mandr268,

Thank you for your feedback, it is highly valued and lets us know any areas on which we can improve. I have spoken with my team about the cleanliness of your room and rest-assured that methods are place to ensure there is no repeat of this.
Unfortunately some things are out of our control, however I do hope that these did not impact on your impression of Sydney and am glad that you were able to explore the Rocks area during your stay.

Regards,
