Staff is very helpful and the hotel is chic.

The area has many restaurants very close walking distance and night life. The hotel is NOT in the "Red Light" district.

Restaurants are a very short walk---Many different food specialties. My favorite was "Spice I Am", a Thai restaurant. On the left side of the street, the first cafe you come to, serves an excellent breakfast.

Good if you want to be near Kings Cross

Very nice room; super-close to Kings Cross, which is good if that's exactly where you want to be, and not great if it's not (Kings Cross is sort of the party district).

Great location, had potential

The good: The hotel is located in an area that let me explore Sydney on foot for days! The Opera House parks, warfs, and harbors were less than a 30 minute walk. I caught the hop-on/hop-off bus a block away from the front door of the hotel and figured out how close everything is. The staff was super friendly and helpful. All the common areas were clean and very modern (in a good way). The bad: There was a bit of noise from the streets due to the active nightlife in that location, but it did not hinder my sleep. The rooms are not well insulated, so if you are a light sleeper, look elsewhere. The shower design was not well thought out, so after a shower the entire bathroom floor was soaked with water spilling onto the carpeting. The Ugly: The black decor probably looked pretty slick when it was put in, but after some abuse, it shows every nick and scrape. This of course can be resolved with a black sharpie pen, but it did not appear that anyone put too much thought into the upkeep. The darkness of the room was a bit dreary, but also made for easy sleeping in the morning. There was neon green paint spilled on the black carpeting, which reminded me to wear my flip-flops(thongs) in the room... Given the conditions of the room, I think I could have found a better deal in the area. Fancy shampoo bottles did not offset the beat up furniture, carpeting and the leaky shower. The location was perfect for a first time tourist like me however, so I will consider this hotel again if I get a decent rate...

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Darlinghurst is full of cafe's, restaurants and clubs. Cross the street and within a block you have every type of dining, most of it quite good! The other direction is the debauchery of Kings Cross. Great place for kababs, night clubs and all the rest...

Great location, friendly staff

This hotel might be said by some to be `dated` in decor, but we found it to be unique and not off putting. The location at Kings Cross cant be beat. The staff are friendly and happy to give you advice and help with luggage. It wont knock your socks off, but it wont disappoint, and its an excellent value, unless you want to pay $100 more to be in the financial district.

NIce hotel, impressed but..design flaws

I really liked this hotel overall. Very cheerful and helpful staff. Hotel well located, everything was just a block or two away, great restaurants, gym, grocery, bars and areas of interest. Hotel is designed, and designer and clean and modern.Loved it. BUT, there were some strange details in the room. Around my flat screen tv, there was an exposed area with all the wires exposed and narly. It was so odd to look at this for 9 nites, wondering how did the designer of the interiors let that happen? why had they let that detail slide? it Baffled me the entire trip. It doesnt help that I work in design, so details are EVERYTHING to me and my eye. So the interior designer gets a FAIL letter F for design which brings my rating down to 4 out of 5 stars. My room was comfy. Quite at nite. Bed was perfect. had free internet which was a surprise. but I guess I paid for it. The hotel is not cheap, but nothing is in Sydney. I was suprised the hotel didnt have a bar and restaurant. That would have made it perfect. There were a lot of interesting people I saw coming in and out and I met one of them at a bar one nite, and I would have liked to have met some of the other guests in the hotel since I was traveling alone. Another con is the apartment building across the street. Full of peepers and if I can see straight into their apartments and see what they are cooking for dinner, they can see my every moment. If you are into it, leave your curtains drawn..very nosy peepers peep... One of my favorite trips ever in my life in the end. Great city. Everyone looked healthy and happy.

Great hotel and excellent location

We couldn't have been more pleased with the room, the courteous, helpful staff or the location. Getting anywhere in and around the Central Business District was easy, with bus service less than a block from the front entrance. The staff were very pleasant and very helpful.

Okay.

The staffs are friendly. The hotel itself is close to everything. Be aware of safety issues as this hotel is located in one of the most notorious areas in Sydney according to my tour book (the other area is the redfern district). The room was torn and could be significantly cleaner. Won't stay there again for the next time. It is not a hotel for families or couples. It is more suitable for guys looking for paid romance in the kings cross area.
