Great location, nice staff

The hotel is within easy walking distance of Central Station (15 minutes), if you want to take the train to the airport (AUD $15 one way) or around the country. There is also a convenient, efficient shuttle back to the airport (AUD $12 one way) that can be booked and paid for at the lobby. It picks you up right at the hotel at half-hour intervals during the peak times.My room (2/3 of the way to the top, on the end, with a nice view looking down Wentworth Ave.) was clean, quiet, and all-around pleasant. The TV station choice was rather limited, but I wasn't in Sydney to watch the tube!The staff members are friendly and helpful. That goes a long way toward making up for the fact that there are often long lines at the front desk (and elevators), due to the many large tour groups that stay at the hotel. On the other hand, people arriving on early-morning flights (which includes most everyone coming from North America) are welcome to store their luggage free of charge and come back when their rooms are ready. The hotel also seems to be popular with festive Australians visiting Sydney, which means that you don't feel as though you are only rubbing shoulders with "foreigners" like yourself.There are numerous dining options within 10 minutes of the hotel on foot, even if there are not any right at the hotel itself. (The front desk does sell snacks and drinks.) Sydney rivals Seattle and Alaska when it comes to the number of coffee shops. There is one on almost every corner--in addition to a couple in the middle of every block. That's the impression I got, in any event!It is not too long a walk north through Hyde Park (5 minutes) to Macquarie Street (15 minutes), the Botanic Gardens (20-25 minutes), and the Opera House (25-30 minutes). There are trains and buses (the 555 is free), too, but I wanted to get my exercise. Chinatown is about 15 minutes to the northwest. The shopping and gay bars and clubs on Oxford Street are only a 5-10-minute walk away. Surry Hills is directly to the south (it starts across the street, and the local police station is a block away), and it is really a charming neighborhood/suburb. Great Lebanese, Turkish, and Greek food along Cleveland Street.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Crown Hotel at the corner of Goulburn & Elizabeth has a nice traditional-style pub with a good draft beer selection, reasonably priced lunch specials, and an interesting assortment of mostly local customers (from blue-collar workers to older gentlemen and ladies to yuppie couples). As in many such places, a lot of people are watching and betting on horse and other races on the TV. In this place, it doesn't get obnoxious or overbearing, though. Laid-back and fun.

GOOD LOCATION

The location was good, but the bed was hard and the pillow flat. We stayed 6 days and the bed was made each day but the sheet were never changed the whole time we were there. It was quiet and had a fridge and microwave which was nice.

Good Value

Good staff (Very friendly, helpful). Decent room. Terrific location for Sydney. It's a 3-star hotel, but I gave it 4 stars because of the staff, microwave oven, and location. Does not have a gym, but there are pay facilities (i.e. Fitness First) very near. Walked everywhere from there: Sydney Tower, Circular Quay with ferry to Taronga Zoo, Museum, Darling Harbour with IMAX, Wildlife Park and Aquarium, Hyde Park, shopping and dining (including being out past 1:30 AM). Be sure to check out the museum off College Street.

Buy groceries (Cereal, milk, bread, fruits, etc.) and Laundry soap at Cole's and stock fridge & use plastic bags for clothes. Use Microwave oven and fridge to save on Breakfast and/or lunch. Use laundry facilities on premises. Hotel Breakfast too expensive.
