The place was clean and adequate, and a very handy location to the CBD & Entertainment Centre. Unfortunately their idea of a queen-size bed didn't match our expectation of a queen-size bed!

Excellent cosy and clean hotel

Excellent cosy and clean hotel with generous breakfast buffet available located next to Capital Theatre and close to Chinatown. Easy walking access to Central Railway Station and close to free shuttle bus allowing you many stops for shopping, sightseeing and connects you with Circular Quay ferries and river cats for water transport. Happy to recommend this hotel to people who don't want a harbour view but appreciate the practicality and affordability of this great hotel's handy position.

The rooms were small and stuffy,

The rooms were small and stuffy, we had to open a window to get some fresh air. There were dirty marks on the walls and the floor in the bathroom had pools of water. The toilet was running all night and we could hear dripping. We were next to the elevator which we could hear going up and down. We wanted to leave our bags for the day that we checked out but were told there was no room for storage. Breakfast was ok. Rooms were uncomfortable and stuffy.

average hotel. Very good location

average hotel. Very good location at the heart of Sydney. Ideal for exploring Sydney on foot or public transport. Car park is very expensive (A$6/hr) or A$30/overnight. Lots of amenities around and Starbucks on the ground floor. Ideal place to "drop dead" after a long day wondering this beautiful city.

Shabby and worn. Room was VERY small. When you flush the toilet it smells of dirty swampy water. No handtowel provided. Staff were somewhat vague and not overly helpful. Was told an imprint of credit card would be taken for security bond, however they do withdraw $1 without asking your permission, add up all those $1 for every room and that's a lot of extra $$ they are making. Perhaps they should use that to fix the place up. Overall, can't say it was value for money because it wasn't worth the $175 a night I paid. Plus $45 for parking! I wouldn't stay there again.

Hotel ,was tired, needs renovations

Hotel ,was tired, needs renovations . Good helpful staff and polite. Sheets,bed cloths etc, all clean and room well serviced every day. Tv set was the old box analog type and reception was snowy. Air conditioning did not work...i needed heat. I did not realize it was not working till last night when i tested it and there was no heat, just cold. A bit noisy at night with local night club music but easy to adjust.Cold hear people next to me some nights chatting (not intelligible) Very Central to Sydney CBD
