Great place when traveling alone for buiness

Hotel was easy to find. Very close walking distance with roller bag to the Central train station. I got a quite inside room - light shaft to window. Made it quite in a loud section of town. Bed was comfortable, room was very small, but had desk and nice bathroom. Very clean, safe, quite. Overall very comfortable, great for business traveller. Location walking distance to everything if you like to walk.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the Airport train to central station or beyond. Its under $17 AUS$ and 3 times faster as well as at least 3 times cheaper than a taxi. Well marked, easy to use. Can go out back entrance from Central station to walk to hotel in 1 under 10 minutes.

Quite stay for the weary business travller

Room, was small but well laid out. I liked that it's window was on an inside shaft- made it very quite, but brought in natural light. Quite is good as this is right near the central train station. This hotel met my three criteria: 1) afford able, 2) near the Central train station 3) Quite with a comfortable bed. For those who do not come to sidney all the time- take the train form the airport. Central is only 3 stops after you get out of the last airport stop and only takes about 12 minutes - vs at least 35 in a taxi and costs $16.40 vs about $50. This hotel was an easy walk from the station even with my roller board packed with 10 days clothes and my computer backpack. Wifi is not included but is only $70 a week, which is about half most other places. I was able to stay for about $110 per night all included for 3 weeks. Normally I would have had an aching back or neck, in most low cost hotels - but the bed was good, and made my stay quite productive. You wont find a coffee shop or food - but you don't needs it there are three places within 100 meters of the front door, and many more in the area. Its only about a little over mile and a half walk to the Rocks or Circular Quay, with lots to see along the way. Everything is walkable form this location (2 miles max).

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the airport train to central station and go out the back stair way (Away from the train terminal when you arrive) into the pedestrian tunnel that leads toward George street this saves a good 500 meters in walking, and most is underground... good in hot weather or in rainy weather. Train is also 3 times faster and 1/3 the price of a taxi. Grab an Opal card if you plan to see sights outside of downtown - works on trains and farries

Bad value. No service.

Room was tiny. Clean but tiny. The lack of staff at night means people are on their own if there is a problem. We had a key problem and had to call a locksmith, and Police, to sort out. Had a stranded family whose flight was delayed so they arrived late. Once staff are gone they are gone. This place even charges $2 to watch your bag a few hours after you check out, price is per bag! Horrible value for money even though room is clean and location good.

Quaint but leaves out something

The front desk was very pleasant to work with and helped us in any way they could. Some of the drawbacks are that you pay for Internet access and only one device can use the code at a time, and most of the time you can't connect. After 9pm, the front desk closes, so you can't get anything if you need it, or have access to the laundry at that time. You need your key to access the lobby after 9pm as well. During the day, the area seems nice, but at night it can be a little rowdy. Also, the is only one elevator and it is super super super slow. The room for 4 people is pretty tight once luggage is stowed around the room, but it was comfortable. The rain shower was interesting, but I would rather have a regular pressure shower head. Also, the soap for washing hands is in a dispenser almost as far as it can be from the sink, but it does include shaving cream, which I thought was a nice touch. Overall, it was a pleasant stay, but not sure if I would repeat if I am ever back in Sydney.

Close to Central Station

Close to Central Station for transportation to almost everywhere as Sydney has trains, buses, & ferries to all the top sites. Laundry on 1st floor, Internet is $15/day and good speed, good breakfast across the street.

My $30 hostel was better then this!?

Yes the hotel is located in a goood area, but for $110 a night you'd think they provide you with ehhh you know internet at least! NO!! $15 for internet (which didn't work that good), and everyone that travels needs it that's just that!!! Check out at 10am, which most hostels/hotels Ive stayed in for the past 10 years have always been 11am. Oh and if you're an hour late checking in its like a $20-50 late charge...not to mention if you lose your little plastic card keys its a $75 penalty charge! Hotel of jail rules is what I felt. I was scared to ask for an extra towel because I thought, it may be a $50 charge! Anything/everything there is a ridiculous charge! I should of stayed at my hostel...great location, $30 a night (and it was nice), free wifi, free breakfast, ownership not cheap, and friendly staff!

No windows and tiny.

The staff were great which is just as well because the hotel is very average and overpriced. The twin room i booked had no windows and was tiny. I was not prepared to stay in the room it was so claustrophobic, i therefore spent three days moving from room to room. If the room description had stated no windows i would have known not to book it. I was also angry to find that even though it was an Australian hotel the price was in USD with no indication that this was the case. When booking an Australian hotel i expect it to be in AUD unless otherwise specified. All in all not a good experience. I wil lnot use Orbitz again nor will i stay in this hotel.
