Annam apartments is in the Heart of Kings Cross and a 5 minute walk to the train station. So nice and close to everything.
The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are ample sized and well kept. i stayed in a Studio apartment on the 5th floor. The room had a double bed, a 32" Flat screen tv and all the free to air channels (no foxtel). When i booked they said it would have foxtel so on the 2nd day of my stay when i went and asked about it, i was advised that they no longer have it and offered me a $20per night discount which i found to be more than generous. There was plenty of storage space as well as a small kitchen if you are there for a longer stay and need to prepare your own meals etc.
If you are a light sleeper then this is not the place for you as it is quite noisy at night, but thats expected for the location. I was aware of this before booking and figured i'd take my chances. I think this accommodation is ideal for young singles or couples looking for cheap comfortable accommodation without compromising on quality. The bathroom is VERY small but thats me being picky.
All in all, i would stay here again as i've seen what else there is in Sydney for this price and some of it isn't pretty.
1 more thing, i left my hat there and didn't realize until I got back to perth. I rang them to chase it up and they located it in their lost property. I sent them a pre paid satchel and my hat was back to me within a week.

The Annam serviced apartments are a good value and great location near to public transport or to walk around the main sights of Sydney. The tourist double decker tour stops 7 minutes walk away and regular buses into town even closer. On Ward Ave, there was not any street noise and the apartments were clean. We spent 3 days-2 nights. Very friendly staff letting us drop bags and leave. One downside is check in and out times rigid with check in only at 2 pm and check out by 10 am. I also enjoyed the yoga center one block away for a healthy start to the day.

Room Tip: We were at top levels - this may be quieter but also good views out on te city streets.

Let me start off by saying these apartments are in a terrific location. They are very close to public transport and there are lots of great places to eat nearby. On the down side, I don't think the manager and his side kick have ever run a hotel/apartment before. They were friendly and polite. However, the apartment was supposed to come with Foxtel - not available. It was also supposed to have wifi - it was only possible to use on one device and had EXTREMELY limited service. In addition, we were provided fresh towels daily but the bathroom was never cleaned and I had to ask for more than one washcloth on several occasions (there were 2 of us staying in the room). I had to ask for toilet paper and shower gel - it wasn't simply replaced. Very strange place.

I was staying over the weekends and I was given a room on the 2th floor, initially i was worried about staying at the apartment hotel because of the negative reviews about the noise given the location near the Kings Cross nightlife. Some drunkens are walking around the street below us but i know we are secured because the hotel lift and the door needs a access card to enter.

The studio apartment is basically a hotel room with a small kitchen with all the kitchen stuff you need, knife, pots and pans, hot plate, etc. A washer/drier in the bathroom, and the toilet is clean and spacious. The room was fairly spacious, clean, well furnished and had everything needed for a short stay. There is a decent real refrigerator and a small supply of coffee tea and milk is provided, as are cleaning cloths, washing up liquid and laundry detergent for the washing machine.

There is a large flat screen TV with satellite channels and a DVD/VHS player. WiFi is provided free and is fast and reliable.

Definitely recommended for it's central location, friendly staff value for money and cleanliness. Near to King cross station, just a 5-7 min stroll away.

the only downside is the on-site undergronud carpark. As the are using a stacker system, the management highlight that bigger cars such as Holden Falcon XR6 may not be able to fit, however smaller cars such as honda jazz/fit, nissan march should not be a problem. Do check before booking.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floor will have ensure quite sleep

I was slightly worried about staying at the apartment hotel because of the negative reviews about the noise given the location near the Kings Cross nightlife however I need not have worried. I was given a room on the 5th floor, with city views.

The studio apartment is basically a hotel room with a small kitchen with hob, microwave and a toaster, and a washer drier in the bathroom. I found the staff to be very friendly, and the room itself was fairly spacious, clean, well furnished and had everything needed for a short stay. The corridors are a little bleak and utilitarian, and feel more akin to a car park than a hotel/apartment building, but again they were clean and fresh. There is a good sized refrigerator and a small supply of coffee tea and milk is provided, as are cleaning cloths, washing up liquid and laundry detergent for the washing machine.

WiFi is provided free and is fast and reliable. There is a large flat screen TV with satellite channels and a DVD/VHS player.

Definitely recommended for it's central location, friendly staff value for money and cleanliness

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor if you are concerned about noise, or simply bring earplugs

These apartments are modern, very clean and have all the mod cons that you need when away from home. There is a kitchen, washing machine and dryer, air conditioning, on site parking. And so convenient - easy walk to Kings Cross station and bus services. Lots of places to eat or just drink coffee.
The people at the reception are very helpful and friendly.
We loved it and have already booked to go back again.

We were in Sydney as my daughter was having an operation at St Vincents Private Hospital. It is easy to find, they have parking onsite, although it is a stacker system. There is another parking station just around the corner though. Staff friendly, helpful and very accommodating. Perfect location within easy walking distance to hospital, restaurants and train. Apartments nicely furnished. Clean & tidy. Would highly recommend!
