The hotel is well located, close to the city centre, not expensive, there is paid parking. But the big unpleasant surprise for us was the awful smell in the room, at the same time it was impossible to open the window. Also there wasn't a wardrobe or even a hook for clothes in the room. The room is small, dark and not clean.

Ive stayed in budget hotels all over the world and this up there with the worst of them.... Had a room booked here for 2 nights and i wasn't expecting 5* accommodation as i know what the formula 1 hotels are about... but this one was actually ridiculous, we checked in to what seemed to be a building under construction. The room itself would of been ok had it not been for the smell of chemical cleaning agents that had been overly used, and with the inability to open the window to ventilate these fumes we all had head aches the entire time. There was also random drilling and maintenance going on throughout the day which meant any chance of sleep was out of the window (had you been able to open it) id personally recommend paying $20 more and checking into one of the travel lodges in sydney city centre

Good location and ok for overnight traveller but room is a bit noisy with other guests and breakfast option is average and limited time available.Suitable for location and airport overnight traveller and value for money considering.
