I think this hotel is aspiring to be a high end hotel but is in need of a renovation.
Lobby is nice, comfortable and inviting, but thats where it ends.
Stayed twice at beginning and end of Oz trip. Both rooms were comfortable and everything was in order but take a glance at the ceiling and there is mould, leak stains etc.
Location is amazing so close to darling harbour, china town, powerhouse museum, Paddy's markets, if the hoetl was better quality I probably could not have afforded to stay there, so if you can get a good deal and avoid looking at ceiling then this hotel is great for a relaxed stay.
I completely agree about the $15 breakfast. Had just arrived after a 14hr flight and paid our $30 for brekkie thinking this was the going rate - incredibly disappointed when we sat down, it took about 30 seconds to survey the 'buffet' I am not sure it would pass an environmental health inspection! It was disgusting and as our 1st Aussie breakfast we were incredibly disappointed. Next morning a 10min walk around darling harbour revealed a wide variety of brekfast options for just a few more dollars - the difference was unbelievable!
Check in and out was slow but staff were helpful. The $12 per night extra cot charge is a bit excessive when you are staying for a few consecutive nights.
