This hotel is old but our large room was comfortable. The reception staff only work during the day and evening. The desk is unmanned during the night till about 9 or 10 am. While they advised me we could leave our luggage in the secure luggage storage if we arrived early till our room was available, what they didn't tell us is that there is no one working on reception if you arrive before 9am. We arrived at 8.30 and had to drag our luggage to a coffee shop while we waited for them to arrive.
There were 5 booked to stay in our room but we had to ask for the correct number of towels, cups and glasses. The digital TV was a bit of a problem. We had to get the reception staff to get it going and we couldn't get any of the channels when we returned to our room later that night. The water pressure is pretty bad but the bathroom is big with a large bath.
The front rooms are not at all soundproof. We experienced a bit of noise on Friday night but Saturday night was incredibly noisy. We were a little unhappy that they didn't let us know the noise levels would be so high. They said we should have asked for a room at the back of the hotel when we checked but, as we were visitors to Sydney, how is it possible to know just how noisy a place can be. So be warned!!!
