You get what you pay for in Syd! My shower was dirty with someone else hair & the walls are really thin. Also my sheets didn'y get changed - maybe they don't? my towels did but then they left the old ones in my room anyway? Location & value are great but that's nearly it.

Not a place you would want to spend any more than a few hours. A bit scruffy but clean. Totally basic, no kettle or tea/coffee etc, TV hardly worked, Room tiny but comfortable bed. Purely for travellers needing a quick kip. Tobacco smell smoke in foyer overwhelming. You get what you pay for in Sydney.

Room Tip: Only use for an overnight sleep en route

We are lucky to find a vacant room for Xmas in Sydney after long search.
Hotel has an excellent location close to everything with 10 minute walk with only $99 at Xmas time where all other hotels were fully booked or double/ triple price.
Our room has a good view over the Bridge Habour though window was a bit dirty.
It is value for money if you just need a place to sleep after a hard walking day. Staff was friendly and helpful though carpet was not clean at all. Good place for a group.

Room Tip: Room with view over the Bridge and Habour

Bathroom was disgusting, NO MIRROR!
I know this is the lowest of the ACCOR hotel chain but jesus, it should still be clean, you shouldnt feel like your going to get herpies from the bed sheets!
There was no curtains at all, so the light came through early morning.
Never go back!
