This is a brilliant place to stay if you want clean comfortable accommodation for great value in the city. We were apprehensive about where to stay because this was our first time in Australia and in Sydney. We didn't know where any place was so we looked up places on tripadvisor and this seemed to be the best place.
We arrive late due to our flight and had to get a taxi ($45), shuttle buses go to and from the hotel from the airport, or you can catch the train. Kings Cross station is a 2 min walk around the corner.
We were not expecting such a nice hotel for the price we paid for the room. There is a kitchen and laundry downstairs so you can cook your own food, eating out everyday is costly and it helped to have a normal breakfast eg. nice cereal we got in the shops.
The rooms are lovely and spacious, clean and comfortable. Our friends stayed at another hotel and found the rooms alot smaller and they had paid more.
As for all this business about the red light district, there is nothing to worry about. The district is basically alot of bars, nightclubs and a few strip clubs, what you normally find in any city. The hotel is located at the bottom of the district, we didn't hear any noise, only the normal you would on any Saturday night in any town or city.
The supermarket and all the shops are a 2 min walk from the hotel, there really is nothing you can fault about this accommodation.
We will definitely be back to stay here again when we return to Australia.
