One of the better hotel deals in Sydney - you don't pay for many frills here (like no pool and restaurant is pretty lackluster), but the rooms are clean (queen superior room was great). Don't get the twin rooms with two beds as they tend to be
older rooms with older bathrooms.
Location is great for Darling Harbour, about a 35 minute walk to Sydney Harbour.
The overall stay at the hotel was very good. The staff was extrememly welcoming and very accomodating. The only thing was that the food wasn't the best; it was ok...but the scrambeled eggs were very watery for the breakfast buffet. The great
location made up for it. It was a short walk to the Harbour with many restaurants and attractions. I'd definitely reccomend the hotel to someone and stay again myself.

Short walk from hotel
Paddy's market is just a short walk, 2 blocks, away were you will find pretty much anything. Great Australian souveniers at great prices.
