Not a particularly good hotel at all. In a decidedly crappy part of town - once night falls don't even think about walking anywhere. Claims to be 5 minutes walk from Darling Harbour are well exaggerated - probably closer to 15 mins walk. The hotel does not offer cable TV as it claims - and the television it does have has incredibly poor reception. No nearby restaurants or even crappy takeaway - not a problem if you don't eat I guess! I booked a "Deluxe" room - HA!!! Very small room indeed, for the life of me I can't imagine a single deluxe feature of the room. No lift - hopefully stairs are to your liking - especially with a few suitcases (makes a wonderful first impression to have to drag suitcases up 3 flights of stairs). Anyway ... stay here if you have to, but, if you can spare a few more bucks - try somewhere else - (I stayed at the Savoy - Double Bay once, $15 a night cheaper, better part of town (in fact the best part of town) and a great little hotel, had a nearby supermarket, restaurants and cinema - try that one instead.
