I arrived at a gorgeous brown brick art 4 story Art Deco building, not knowing what to expect. After all it is just off Kings Cross strip, which depending on how you look at it, is a good or bad thing. For me, not a fan, but happily this hotel is tucked in a quiet dead end street. Very central and positioned amongst some good cafes and eateries.
Room is lovely, spacious (I got an amazing deal on a triple sleeper apartment), although some dated fittings. The aircon (which I didn't use) looks like it's from 1973. The room is at least 10C hotter - ok in early sep - but I can imagine is baking by full summer. All rooms from what I can tell face leafy Springfield ave and have a distinctly New York neighborhood feel, including a few sirens through the night. They're clean with crisp white sheets and sparkling white bathrooms.
One thing to note is that people moving about upstairs cause creakiness and the bed actually wobbles with my heavy-footed neighbor.
I found a great eatery in the hood: Sides & Mains does amazing healthy take away. You select a protein (vegetable or meat) for $10 + salad (small is $7.50) which are full of variety and seasonal not just plain cos lettuce and a few tomatoes - they're actually quite creative and delicious!
Best of all is the gorgeous old-school elevator with safety grid.
Will I stay again? If it was transported to another neighborhood, definitely. Yet base in the spectacular deal and other perks, maybe I just might....
