I stayed here for 2 nights,a Friday and a Saturday. Check in was standard,and i got the feeling it wouldnt be anything to luxurious,and it wasnt.
My room was adequate size,it contained the bare basics,bed,tv,bathroom. No jug,no chair,no opening windows and the the bathroom flowed out everywhere when ya shower.
Uncomfortable bed,thin cheap mattresses and old million times washed bedding. The room had some rotted patches in the carpet,and the pull down blind/shutter was covered in graffiti,some dating back to 2006 that im sure could be gone with a good clean.
The Saturday night was quite bad,as this hotel is cheapish and a chain within the cross it gets full with teenagers and party goers on the weekend,and as they do dorm rooms that sleep 4 for the same price as a double,it turns into a party hotel.
The place on Sat nite was noisy,and littered with alcohol cans and bottles in the halls and lift.
Travelling as a single male it was just adequate,but not somewhere i would take a partner or recommend for peace,comfort of style.
Its situated right on Williams Street,one of Kings Cross's main sex workers area and has constant traffic going past 24/7.
For the price,theres a lot better.
