AVERAGE AND ORDINARY

WE FELT THAT THIS HOTEL WAS OVER-PRICED FOR WHAT YOU GOT. THERE WERE NO TOWEL RACKS IN THE BATHROOM SO NOWHERE TO HANG DAMP TOWELS. DARK STAINS ON THE CARPET AND GENERAL STATE OF CLEANLINESS WAS AVERAGE. THE POSITION OF THE HOTEL WAS GOOD AND THE STAFF WERE HELPFUL.

great location and value

Good clean hotel with large rooms but small bathrooms. A metre less room space and a metre more ensuite would improve the room. Close to trams and trains and Paddys Market. Staff helpful.

Quite Good

There were quite a few marks on the furniture and in the bath tub from scuffing etc otherwise the location was great. needs a ramp at the front door for suitcases this should have been a must when the building was being built

Great amenities and location

This hotel is right in Chinatown, off George St; it's close to many major attractions, restaurants and shops, and close to the train station. The room I stayed in was spacious, the wifi is fast & only $32 for 3 days (other plans are available), and the food I had in-house was great.

Good, though could improve!

I guess my stay started a little on the back foot. I had to wait to check in while the receptionist dealt with a very long query from the person in front of me. Another receptionist eventually appeared, but was taking a long time ordering take away food. It turned out the order was being made for a guest, but even so I was left waiting. The room was quite good and had everything that you need...including a comfortable bed. There was a working iron and an in room safe. I had a nice enough view bearing in mind there is a lot of building work going on near the hotel. I was there for a business function the first night and was a little alarmed when the lift took ages to arrive at my floor. This was also the case the next day. But, these are really little issues. I enjoyed my stay. The location is great for Darling Harbour and China Town and the Casino. It is close to Central Railway Station - just be careful of the higgledy streets when trying to find the hotel.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

I've said long walk, but it is a nice walk of about 25 minutes over to Star City via Darling Harbour. Lots to see and plenty of restaurants along the way. I went to the Lyric Theatre.

Great budget hotel

This is a hidden gem with very comfortable beds. The elevators need attention as they are incredibly slow and were not all working. We had problems convincing the staff that we had paid a bed and breakfast rate despite an email stating breakfast was included both days so make sure you print off the email as others were having the same problem and breakfast is fantastic but $29.50 a head. Staff are very busy as this is a large and very busy hotel so give yourself plenty of time at the reception desk. Great location for shopping and Chinatown.
