I stayed here a couple of nights for work, which was located on Glebe Point Road, less than a 10 min walk away. The location was fine for that; I didn't go any further afield, so hard to judge if it's a good location if you're a visitor or tourist to Sydney.
The room was fine; mine overlooked the main street, but jet lag and being a heavy sleeper meant I didn't hear any noise. The room was a good size, bed comfy, TV worked. The room and the building in general had high ceilings, ceiling roses, etc, lending it an air of old school charm that I liked.
The bathroom was fine, except one small complaint; a gap in the shower screen meant it was inevitable water would escape and end up all over the floor, leaving the bath mat a soggy mess. A couple of squirts of waterproof sealer would help fix that.
I got a $5 breakfast voucher for one morning - and still ended up paying $12.50 on top of that again for breakfast. It was nice, but I wouldn't call it good value.
Would be fine to stay here again for the same purpose; for anything else, I'd recommend doing some research to find if it's in the right area for your needs.
One last thing; beware that reception isn't 24hr; I arrived around 10pm, just as the reception was closing up for the night. I had no idea that it closed that early and it was only by virtue of me choosing to get a taxi - instead of public transport, like I usually do - that I made it there in the nick of time!
