We stayed here for six nights in Sydney back in September 2011.
The very best thing about this place is its location. You can walk or hop a train at Wynyard station to go anywhere you need to be. Many tourist attractions are very convenient, no train required. The room was clean, nicely remodeled, and refreshed daily at our leisure. A few days we were in the room when the cleaning staff came by, but they were happy to return when we stepped out. The room overall was fairly cramped with minimal space to walk and the bed was perhaps a full or a double, not even a queen. A bit tight for two, to be honest, but I suppose that’s all in what you’re accustomed to. The bathroom was large but had no vanity except for a tiny 3”x10” glass tray mounted to the wall. Obviously not meant to cater to anyone who has anything they need to use at the bathroom sink besides a toothbrush. Like a cosmetics bag, perhaps? All of that I could live with, particularly for the stellar price when considering where you’re located, but two things drove me batty about this place. First is the Internet service. It was $11 for the first ½ hour or $22 for a full day. That’s just highway robbery. Do yourself a favor, go across the street to Starbucks and pay for their internet for a far more reasonable rate ($6/day). The other thing was the NOISE. If you think you’ll be able to sleep in at this hotel, think again. I don’t know if the windows are made of paper, but from the 7th floor I could hear all sorts of traffic noise, people talking on the sidewalks, even the audible crosswalk alert – from my closed windows seven floors up and around the corner (we were NOT street facing). The sound through the closed door wasn’t much better. I could hear every word of conversations going on in the hallway.
The bottom line: You get what you pay for. If you want to see Sydney on a budget and can put up with a few inconveniences to do so, this might be the place for you.
