“Run down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Stayed for two nights late February.
Room size was fine but bathroom was very small and whilst I have come accross smaller bathrooms (IBIS Singapore) it was basically falling to pieces with shoddy patch ups.
The bed was very uncomfortable, a memory foam topper would help with this.
Management need to wake up and include internet in the price as it is a must for travellers and if you wanted it here the price was way too high.
Breakfast was as others have described, basic but when all said and done was adequate to give you a start to the day.
Unfortunately in the final analysis the bed and bathroom are the two most important things and neither were up to scratch.

We stayed 5 days here. The hotel is a boutique style with two Victorian house connected together with an inside Atrium where breakfast is served. We had a spacious room on the front with a balcony. I was a little concerned about street noise but the double doors do a good job of keeping it out; the AC also ran very quietly. The bathroom is small but adequate with basic towels and linens. The room also include a flat screen, small fridge, and coffee/tea set up. The continental breakfast is good for what it is and is offered until 9:30.

We found 5 minute walk to Kings Cross station very convenient. The managers very helpful in recommending how to get around and how to get to destinations. We also found the hotel very gay friendly.

Overall, it's a great place to stay for exploring Sydney and a great value for what you're getting.

My wife and I stayed here for 12 nights during January. Excellent from start to finish. The staff very friendly and and helpful. Other reviewers didn't rate the breakfast as very good. I disagree, I found it just right, a good choice of cereals, fruit (albeit tinned - not a critiscm), yoghurt, juices, tea, coffee & toast (plain and fruit bread). Put it this way a much larger selection than at home. The hotel's location was ideal for us, an easy walk to the Opera House / Circular Quay via the beautiful Botanic Gardens or to Darling Harbour in the opposite direction. Two or three times we used the train to get to or from the Circular Quay via the Kings Cross station which is a five minute walk away. The hotel is a delightful pair of old Victorian houses so much nicer than the corporate could be anywhere in the world alternatives. Would not hesitate to stay again. Once last comment, I meant to say earlier, the aircon in our room was quiet, brilliant!

My husband and I stayed at Victoria Court during our visit in Sydney. It was recommended to us by friends and we enjoyed our stay very much. The location is close to most places we wanted to go; there is also a bus stop and metro station within a short distance. We took the red hoho bus, which was a good way to seeing Sydney. Our room was quiet and comfortable. We liked the old Victorian atmosphere, which is totally different from most modern hotels. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much. The breakfast in the glasshouse is a good start to the day. When in Sydney, we would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: We took a mid-range room

My wife and I stayed there fro three nights, the room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. Our bathroom was very large. The staff were very helpful and attentive. the breakfasts were ok, but not the best. the B&B is well located, near lots of restaurants, it is easy to get into town, parking is not easy in the street, we did use there very good car park for one night.

This is a funky little hotel which I have used before located not to far from the Art museum and the Horticultural gardens. It is a converted house and the rooms are charming. For what it offers it is not inexpensive and the 'bathroom' is the size of a broom cupboard. You barely have room to sit on the 'loo. More of a ship's head than a bathroom. Also they charge for wifi.
If you want an excellent breakfast or brunch go to The Dove Cafe about four doors up the hill on the same side

We stayed at Victoria court from Dec 29 to Jan 3rd Sydney. It is located on a road parallel to King's cross and is centrally located. we could walk to Sydney Harbour and didnt need to take any taxis, buses or trains as most of the places we wanted to go was walking distance.

The room was clean, bed extremely comfortable and the manager was extremely helpful in guiding us to the right places. Breakfast was continental style and most often we ate outside at the wraps place in the next lane.

if i had to visit sydney again, I would stay here.
