Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Springfield Lodge has been the best find for us in Sydney. At check in we were warmly welcomed and Melissa on reception was very helpful with local knowledge before we set out to explore. We had a king room which was most importantly clean with a bar fridge, wardrobe, quiet air con, big screen tv and 2 chairs and a desk. The ensuite while very small was modern and clean and had the usual supplies however no tissues! A community kitchen is available if you want to prepare your own meals and a laundry is also available at a reasonable price.

We stayed at off site apartment which is a minute walk away from the actual lodge. The location and price for that is good. Apartment does not have washing machine though and no wifi.
Convenient if you are self catering as Harry fresh supermarket is also a minute walk away.
The apartment is quite stuffy when we first check in. The shower water temperature is not consistent during usage.

If you can, request a room in the back. It is relatively quiet. We were on the fourth floor. Be aware if you are there, you need to carry your stuff up one flight of steps. The bathroom is TINY. If you are tall, you will have to sit sideways on the toilet! The room was very comfortable. Bed made for good sleeping. A kettle and refrigerator are provided. You need to pay for wifi, but there are plenty of places nearby with free wifi. There are a number of adult shops a block away. Security is good at the hotel, but there was no problem walking through the area in the evening. There are buses a couple of blocks away to get to the CBD.

The room is small but tidy and it's close to everything, you can walk from the hotel to the opera house, botanical garden and the best part is the train station,the staff were very friendly and very helpful. Overall it's good for its value

Good budget hotel, excellent location can easily walk to the Harbour through the botanic gardens.
Very friendly and helpful staff and lots of good value restaurants and bars on your doorstep. Lift only goes to 3rd floor if you are on the 4th floor you have to drag your cases up 2 flights of stairs.

We have used this hotel twice now as our base in Sydney. This heritage hotel is clean and it's location can't be beat. It is situated just a block and a half from King's Cross station but because it is on a side street and not on Darlinghurst it is quieter than you would expect. Front desk staff quite helpful. Only drawback is the hotel shuttle. Cost is just $12 but it takes a mysterious route where you pass by the same corner 3 times. Leave yourself lots of time. We are definitely staying here again.

In summary: 1. Location (in the city, close to public transports) 2. Quaint Building amidst the concrete 3. Famous cozy cafe in the hotel/ lodge

Sydney is the busiest & most populated city in Oz so you would expect concrete. Seeing this white quaint place, that too in the middle of Kings Cross (KC), is delightful. Its a 2 mins walk to KC train station & 7mins walk to bus stops where you can hop onto buses to Circular Quay & Watsons bay. Interestingly its off Darlinghurst Street yet you feel you are away from the chaos every Thu-Sun nights esp. You have this wonderful & constantly bustling cafe open for brunch, lunch & dinner! What I did not like was the ceilings & walls are thin and I could hear footsteps from outside the door & above us. Otherwise all is well & I say take up this hotel/ lodge stay. No free wi-fi but you get it at the public library (2mins away) easily (AND yes there's a library in KC!?!). Its really a good stay & the price tag is great for the plus points. Enjoy Sydney!
