Good location, clean room

The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk to Central Station, close to Chinatown, and the free shuttle bus stop is 5 minutes down the road. Very convenient to get everywhere in the city, we mostly walked - Darling Harbor is 15-20 minutes away, Circular Quay less than half an hour. Our room was clean an spacious (spacious for the price), the beds were very comfortable we got a good night's sleep. There is no individual control over the air con, but we liked the temperature they had set - fresh, not cold, not hot and stuffy, just right. Our floor was very quiet - I've been in cheap hotels where you can hear everyone going in the corridors, people in other rooms as well - not in this one. Nice, quiet and clean - what more can you ask from a cheap hotel. Saying that, everything "extra" is charged - need a brelly, that will be $5 a day, wi-fi is $5 an hour, $15 for 1 day. My 1 hour of wi-fi was only 40 minutes, so watch out for that - their system is bugged and sometimes starts counting down from 40-50 minutes rather than the 60 it is supposed to. Overall, a nice hotel.

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.

Great place to stay.

They had my room ready and let me check-in even though I arrived a few hours before check-in began. The staff was very helpful with locations for things to do in the city, and they were great with getting me a ride back to the airport when I left.

More a college dorm than a hotel

There were no windows in my room. Not a lot of space. Bathroom is nice though. Staff friendly. It is adequate if you are looking for a place to sleep at night.
