Convenient location, great staff led by Armindio at the front desk.

This hotel is centrally located in a historical building. I would not give them 4 stars that they are claiming, 3 at best. There is a major construction site next to hotel which is not disclosed in the hotel description. Presumably, the construction work is going there only during a day, which is still an inconvenience. But in my case, because this construction resulted in a sewage system failure, emergency repair work with a lot of noise was happening all night long.

The hotel stuff very friendly and helpful. Really enjoy our stay. Old style hotel - loved the elevator - back in the old days ;) Everything walking distance

This is an older hotel that has been remodeled. Everything was old and antique; elevator, all the fixtures, bathroom, etc. The room we stayed in was a little small but it had everything we needed. We were not in the room a lot other than sleeping and getting ready in the morning. If you don't mind old and you don't need tons of room, this was an affordable option. The location was great for vacationing. Close to mass transportation. 25 minute walk to Circular Quay and the Rock's areas. Right in the heart of shopping, food, parks, museums, Sydney Tower, etc.

This is not high end but it is a good value for your money. Our room was small, congested, clean and equipped with a good bed. Food service was there but, again, not high end. For downtown Sydney, this is a deal.

Very nice little boutique hotel within walking distance to many sights....also near hoho bus service....enjoyed our stay very much for two nights prior to boarding our cruise ship. Would definitely stay here again.

A very interesting experience. The hotel rooms are tiny -- I really had to walk sideways to get around the bed. But everything was clean and the service decent. The room price was half what you would pay for typical CBD hotels. The breakfast was fine, and also half what the big hotels charge.

We do apologise; as you have correctly identified, Castlereagh St has been the unfortunate victim of a number of water problems stemming from construction as of late. Thankfully, we are now having our windows double-glazed, while a sound-proof shelter is being erected over the works nearby.
