We stayed here Jan 2013 - Excellent location really short walk to Bondi beach and the surrounding bars / restaurants whilst quiet at the same time.
We booked a double room to begin with and then due to a double booking (I think) we were upgraded to the lotus suite for the same price of $230 per night. The woman we spoke to was really helpful. After staying at some other places we realised this was actually pretty pricey.
The room was huge with a dining and kitchen area, another sitting / sleeping area and bathroom (with nice toiletries). Furnished and decorated really nicely with some great pieces of furniture and art
Few things we think let it down, especially for the price we paid:
Upon entering the room it smelled quite fusty as if it hadn't been aired for quite a while - reminded me of old books or a church/ museum. It was pretty pretty dusty, especially the blinds when I went to open them. Windowsill had a dead bug and some chewing gum stuck on it, one of the kitchen cupboards had coffee granules and some other bits spilled on them, Fire alarm was hanging open and didn't seem to be working. Got up in the night to use the bathroom and nice fat cockroach was there to welcome me. There was no air-con but there was a fan. Just felt like it needed a really good clean and air.
The entrance to the room was separate to the main building down a little narrow ally/ pathway which was quite dark and I didn't feel the door was especially secure at night.
Also a thing to note is there is no parking available. And no outside space to dry your beach things.
We didn't use the communal area so can't comment on that.
So a little of a mixed review. I think for the price we paid the quality didn't match mainly on cleanliness.
