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.

Do the free tours. They are fantastic. www.imfree.com.au
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.
