“nice for the location - carpet was a bit funny, parking not that great”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

if you plan to stay at this hotel make sure you don't need to drive there, parking in the area is scarce at best and if you have to pay for parking either at the hotel or at a nearby parking station you'll pay approx $40.
however the location is pretty hard to beat and for the $99 that I paid it's central to transport and an excellent nightlife scene.
the carpet in the room i stayed in felt a bit damp or greasy, couldn't put my finger on it. not sure whether it was the actual feel of the pile or whether the cleaners had been a bit oversealous with the products but it's something they could work on
also - windows facing william st need to be regularly cleaned. rooms on the top floor have pretty nice views but not so much when there is a layer of grime over the top of the window
overall i would recommend this hotel for a 1-2 night budget stay if you're only there to sleep and explore the city

This is the worse hotel that one can actually stay, it is more like backpacker place than a hotel. Rooms was decently big, yet there were some crumb covered under the blanket. Just letting lead to wonder, is everything actually cleaned after the previous resident check out? The carpet was sticky and not clean. Most importantly, no taxi would willing to travel there at night if you are at pyrmont area. Seriously, if you are travelling as a couple, please don stay here!

This hotel is in a great location but is cheap and nasty.
The room is small also a small tv and no other facilities. (fridge)
Al most no service provided at reception staff, but it is handy to the city.

Hotel located very close to trains and buses. Prompt check in.
We were given a room on the sixth floor with a view of the harbour. Room vas very spacious as it had disabled facilities. Excellent value for money. Would be prepared to stay again.
