Very convenient when only bare necessities required, good parking available. TV noise from adjacent room noticable, otherwise peaceful. Mattress quality could be better. Parking important consideration and was available all day at good price.

This hotel is probably about 10 walk from the airport. Not a difficult walk but at first I did have some difficulty due to suddenly the walking path ending.

My room was clean. The elevator didn't work for one night I was on the 5th floor. It happens not the hotels fault they got someone out to fix it pretty quick.

I sadly booked this room for 4 nights and did not have a car. That means you have to walk to the nearest bus stop a good 15-20 min away or back into the airport about 5-10 min (which costs a lot more to use the airport train) for public transportation. I ended up buying a week pass for the public transportation make sure you include the airport line which will cost more.

The bed was more like sleeping on a rock (it was abnormally hard)! But it is a good price so you can look past somethings when you save money.

If I was staying 1 night I think it would have been fine.

I was there for 3 nights and it was very clean, the rooms are very small, just enought space for a doble bed an a desk, but the bed was very uncomfortable so i felt i was sleeping on woods.
Even thought the customer service is really bad the Hotel is really safe so you don't have to worry about losing your luggage.
There is a Mc Donals, KFC, and a donuts place close to the hotel.
For some reason the street where the hotel is located is raining all the time, even if there is sunny the rest of the city.

I think it is good to stay there for a night or if you have to travel early in the morning because it is 5 minutes walk from the airport.

We arrived at about 10.30 pm on a Friday night. It might just be Sydney but it could do with a thorough clean. We are in the Advantage Plus club and it was cheap, but we have stayed in other places for the same amount of $$$$$ and its been spotless.

The location price and service received at the Formule 1 Sydney airport are just what you need prior to an early flight from either the domestic or international terminals, with the shuttle bus easy to book and pay for on arrival. Unfortunately on this last stay the room was certainly not clean, smelling terribly stale and with nasty stains on the carpet. We should have asked for a different room and will certainly reconsider our overnight options before our next trip.

My wife and I and our two children (aged 14 and eight) had to catch an early flight to Auckland and needed somewhere 'no frills' and close to the airport. The reviews of this hotel were mixed but because we would only be there for a few hours we took a chance. In the event, we were really impressed. The hotel was clean, comfortable, well maintained and the staff helpful and courteous. We needed to meet friends in the centre of Sydney and had been warned about the cost of taxis/trains from the airport. We sought advice at reception and the gentleman told us the best option was to a 15-minute walk to Mascot station and he patiently showed us the route, drawing it on a map. Some hotels would just have called a taxi for us and to hell with the cost. In the end, our return train fare from Mascot was $12 for all four of us. Very impressed.
