Small Hotel - Good Value

Check-in was prompt & efficient. Breakfast was a let-down but at the time was included. Good location for transport. A downside was a very noisy airconditioning system. On the whole I would recommend this hotel.

APPALLING

I wouldn't let a cockroach stay in this hotel! We viewed three different rooms, all of which were dank, crowded, dirty and worst of all had a pervading smell of mould and mildew. The last room we looked at was so bad, the skirting boards were rotten from being wet and there was mildew all over the window frames. It posed a serious health risk for anyone to stay there. I would highly recommend that no-one without a death wish should stay here. You'd be better off in the street or sleeping in the park. Rydges should be embarrassed to associate their name with this hotel.

The Japanese bakery on Gouldburn St shuts about 9pm. The food is yummy and everything is 50% off around closing time.

Great Location

Excellent location for Paddy's Market and Market City Mall and George St and getting in from the airport by train. Excellent breakfast included deal we got. Unfortunately at night we did not sleep well as it was hot and the air con was not working well and was very noisy. Got free WiFi for parts of the day which was good. Free inner city shuttle bus on George St and Monorail nearby. Room clean but bedding and decor well worn. Good flat screen TV. Overall great value for money for inner city hotel.

6 nights in Sydney

Great location but the accommodation itself was disappointing. The room was shabby with old fixtures, the bed was comfortable but the covers were old and worn looking, The room was moderately clean. The staff were uninterested in customer service to the point of rudeness.

Close to everything

The hotel itself was nice and neat. Nothing great, just basic rooms, basic bathroom etc. The room also had a little bar fridge, coffee and tea, kettle etc. The best thing about this hotel was the location, close to everything! Pubs, restaurants, Central station was within short walking distance. The staff were great, really friendly and helpful. The buffett breaksfast that was included was average, I've had better. Overall, the hotel's location was the best thing.

small room

The facility is old and the room is small. The grout between ceramic tile turned black years ago. It is next to China Town and 30 minutes walk from Circluar Quay.

Convenient to all in the C.B.D.

Convenient to all in the C.B.D. Checkin was slow and lift was busy. Convenient car park. Check the Sydney one way streets to get in! Breakfast was adequate and food was replenished when asked for. We would stay again. Room was a decent size, no view.
