Tiny and Tidy

I have a comfortable stay in this hotel - everything is there, basic but well provided. The bed is quite small even for a small person like myself. Clean, quiet room and friendly staff. No wifi and the TV is not placed for comfortable viewing. Great location, close to the night market in China Town.

Great position

Was a little worried about the location but on arrival found the free George Street bus right outside running every 10 minutes to Darling Harbour and back up to Central. The hotel was also convenient to the theatre we went to in Campbell Street. It is a Heritage building and really interesting. The guest lounge had a little kitchen and microwave for you use. Great idea. We would use it again.

Great accommodation at the heart of Sydney CBD

I booked a room for 6 people right in the middle of Sydney, NSW city. Not knowing what to expect, I was surprised to get a comfortable and clean room and enough space for all of us to go around - including two kids. Front desk staff are very accommodating and cheerful, particularly Todd. For its price per day, only 10 minutes walk to Darling Harbour, and 2 train stops away to Sydney Opera House, this is really a great find. They don't have parking for their clients, but you got discounted parking (about 50meters away) when you validate your ticket at the hotel's front desk. Front desk is on level 1 via stairs or tight elevator. I'll definitely recommend this to my friends.

Reasonable price for the quality

Helpful and friendly staff, good location (keep in mind that good location means the music never stops), reasonable price, OK quality, bed can be better. Not recommended for elderly. OK for short stay.

Conference accommodation

I booked this hotel because of its proximity to the SMC where I was attending a conference. The room was spotless. The reception staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was compact but the king bed was delicious to sleep in. It would be nice to have a bar in the restaurant, but you are spoilt for choice with restaurants all around. I would certainly stay again.
