    We only stayed one night but it was exactly what we wanted. clean, comfortable and well positioned. Only a $12.00 taxi ride from the centre of the cbd. My husband and I travelled with my 16 yr old daughter and 91 year old mother in law.

    I understand water saving shower heads are needed but i cant say i like them!!

  • Group of friends

    Walking distance to the SCG & easy to find, and cheap for a night's stay in the CBD.

    The blankets were really thin - could invest in some quilts as it was a bit cold & our sheets were also very dirty.

  • Older travelers

    its location giving easy access to required destinations

    The only disappointment during our stay was the fact that the tv was pretty much usless with the picture tube obviously on the way out. for one night you could put up with this fact but a longer stay would see this rather annoying

  • Group of friends

    It was good, easy access to places and a comfortable place to stay

  • Family with children

    The worst part is the noise come along through surroundings as hotel based in residential area & there is party is running midnight on friday & saturday .Hot water is not working ,tab is not fixed

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    The price is cheap regard to its location and it also has tripple bed room.

    It should have wireless internet service.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    the room was quiet even though on the main street. staff at recepyion very helpful

    it was a bit further from central station than map indicated but manageable

  • Family with children

    It was clean and close enough to all that we wanted to see in Sydney and it was affordable.

    We found the man at the counter rude. He was okay until he asked us to pay. When I replied that I thought I had he was extremely rude. It was a genuine mistake on my behalf and when I thought about it, I quickly realized I was wrong. He could have been far more pleasant and professional in the situation.

    work in / out of Sydney regularly...tried this for a little cheaper option

  • Older travelers

    It was a great disappointment to be awaiting the shuttle bus that didn't turn up. Waited 15 minutes after the arranged time at which stage a taxi was the only option. It would seem either you failed to place the order or you're dealing with an unreliable service. Furthermore the cab fare was $4 cheaper than the shuttle would have been so I suggest it would be better if this option did not exist. Jean Callender

  • Group of friends

    The privacy that we got. The hotel staff were very cooperative for anything that we did ask them for, be it for guidance around the city or for the internet.

    Internet services at the hotels is often provided at the hotel at a designated point, or wireless normally free of charge. I find that in Australia, they are still charging this service at a high rate. This is the downside where for one hour internet connection costs $10.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Secure and far enough away from the CBD, but close enough to walk to local attractions

    The kitchenette in each room is great, you are able to cook up something of your own thats simple and easy.. and the fold out lounge, made it great to watch tv instead of stitting on the bed. The place has a relaxing feel to it!

  • Family with children
    7.0

    The shower was absolutely useless. There was no information in the room regarding hotel services, checkout time etc.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    It is only 10 minutes walk to Sydney Central Train Station.

    The room is too small for family and the heating didn't work during winter. You can feel the spring on the mattress.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Is in a convenient location for visting the city and it's sights. Is close to Central railway station. A good budget price hotel.

    Booked a triple room expecting three single beds. We were given a room with a double bed and a single bed.
