not value for money

I'd not recommend to any one. The hotel location is OK. However, it is over charge for the hotel condition. It's like a back packer accommodation. It's not for business and work people come to work work in Sydney for a few days.

Few steps to Chinatown

This 2 stars hotel isn't too bad at all if you aren't a fussy couple . Room is quite comfortable to rest . Hotel is a few meters to Paddy Market & Chinatown . Value for money if you compare to others place where prices are unaffordable .

Family weekend

Disappointed overall with staff attitude and dirty carpets, the hotel needs to have a makeover. I've stayed several times before I don't if I would stay again and my family were very disappointed with the hotel. The staff at breakfast were good and so was the breakfast.

Needs a touch more to it

The room allocated had a small window which adjoined the mall next door and had no curtains so a well lit room most of the night and noise,making sleeping difficult. requested a room change gave me another room moved all my bags in and then told my reception that the air conditioner did not work in that room, so another room change. The final room was adequate but the bathroom windows werew not double glazed so outside noise and the chill of the night came in. Average hotel in a good position to public transport

Would recommend!

Capitol Square is a good, reasonable hotel. Its location is near to transport & shops. The breakfast, which was included, was very average. The room was very pleasant except for a very noisy intermittent air conditioning system. I've stayed here previously & will do so again!

Bad, Bad, Bad!

Please don't consider this hotel...it's a total dump. Halls are filthy, carpet is stained. Room is a closet, barely enough room to move, walls are all scratched and dirty, carpet again is stained, bathroom is not clean. So many hotels in Sydney that are the same price and so much nicer. Wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy! IF THERE WAS A ZERO I WOULD HAVE USED IT!
