Horrible place-had better sleeps in public bar toilets!,

We just returned from 3 nights at the F1 Sydney. We are a couple with 2 kids in primary. We found the room in perfect shape, basically it looked new. The beds, sheets and pillows were new and fresh. The room and bathroom were spotless. We were on the 6th (top) floor and heard no noise from within the Hotel, although the last night we did hear some noise from the street. A nice feature was the use of the common fridges and microwave where we stored and reheated food, which really helped keep our eating costs down. The front desk was helpful and checkin and checkout went without a hitch. There is a Coles just 5 minutes up the hill. I don't recommend using the small convenience stores down the hill as they are incredibly expensive and don't even both to display the price of items! They are basically a rip off. My kids loved the bunk beds, even fighting over who got the top bunk. There was a tiny TV which worked fine, and the Air Con. ran well and quietly. I really cannot complain about anything, especially given the fact that we had a mid-week special of $69 a night or so. For that money I cannot complain.

Room Tip: The top floor had a decent view and was quiet for us.

Hotel was dirty. Several rooms smelt strongly of insect spray. Shower flow was a trickle. Very disappointed after a good previous experience at Hotel Formule 1 Auckland Airport

Room stunk of cigarette smoke. Bathroom was very dirty. Window didn't seal properly and being on a main road meant lots of traffic noise all night.
