Great location, friendly and helpful

Great location, friendly and helpful staff, good value for the money paid. Clean and tidy room, not very noise-proof due to the timber floor but not too much of an issue.

Located in a very central location. Amenities and cleanliness could have been much better but for the price, I couldnt complain. The staff were extremely friendly and very willing to help!

Great for the cost

The staff was awesome. Parking was scarce but the hotel gave a voucher for half off the price of parking at a garage a couple of blocks away. The location is near the red light district but I felt safe because I saw tons of policemen patrolling the area. There is a grocery store directly across the street from the hotel entrance; that was pretty awesome! The walk to the train station was about two minutes and the cost was only $5 for a day pass. There are also souvenir shops close to this hotel; they were a bit cheaper than the shops near the opera house. They had tons of travel brochures in the lobby and the staff was very knowledgeable about the area. The hotel was extremely clean and I would definitely stay there again.

Reasonable rates in Potts Point/Kings Cross

Despite Sydney being a very expensive place to stay, this lodge had all the amenities, clean room, and location on quiet street just off the Kings Cross district. 2 short blocks from Kings Cross Station. Lots of places to eat within 15 minutes' walk varying from cheap to expensive.15-20 minute walk to city center or the ferry terminal.

Decent building, satisfactory location

Room was small for 2 people, however building is nice and clean- well kept. Location is a little bit sketchy, in Kings Cross which is known for their nightlife, overall felt pretty safe when walking back from train station. Close to underground train station to get to Darling Harbour/Circular Quay... would be 45 min walk to get to these places. Decent price. About 3/5 stars mostly due to location, location didn't ruin our trip, we still had a great time in Sydney

greatest disappointment

Imagine finding out that without any warning, we ended up in an undesirable area.... When someone pays over $100 a night and presumably stays in a 3*** hotel, the expectation is that we are staying in a decent hotel! Next time, I will do my own independent research!!

Good cheap boutique hotel

This was very nice for the price I paid. For the person who said he has stayed in better for less, he did not in Sydney. Just because you can stay in a very upscale hotel for under $100 in Detroit doesn't correlate to Sydney. In between my two stays at the Springfield Lodge I stayed in a Hostel for about the same price. Here you get all the hotel things you expect, private bathroom, a TV with cable, housekeeping etc.. Good value for Sydney.

Excellent choice

The hotel is very well localted, close to a metro (subway) station, and in a very cozy neighborhood. Although it's close to what's becoming the red light district, you don't have to walk that way, and even if you do, it's not dangerous at all. It doesn't have any ammenities...it's a Bed and Breakfast, but the staff are very nice and helpful. The hotel also has a very good restaurant.
