This hotel is well located for buses to. the city and a train station only 15 mins away. Breakfast at the hotel at $7 is also good value with a selection of cereals, fruit, tea, coffee and juices. Rooms are a good size and include an en-suite and are serviced daily. I have stayed there twice and the standard is good value.
We had an overnight stay and found this place adequate and close to the city and some good eateries. Parking can be difficult but they found us a place in their car park at $10. We did not try the buffet breakfast but sounds ok.
Aging building is ok it’s makes up for the location. But no excuse for lack of cleanliness. Most rooms were overnight or a few days at most. We had a long stay. 9 nights top sheet only changed once. Bins not emptied or toilet clean over the weekend. Vacuuming was not done every day even in rooms that were vacated. The receptionist was flip and full of excuses. Sheets for beds that were vacated were stacked on dirty carpet on staircase waiting to be put on beds. Shabby does not have to be dirty. Did not take up breakfast offer, easy to understand why.
I spent 2 nights here while I was attending a court hearing in Sydney. When I called to book I specifically asked if there were any stairs to the room I booked. The answer was no. Please be aware that some people don't consider steps to be stairs. For us with physical limits, steps are stairs. I parked in front and there were 5 very steep stairs to climb up. Parking was terrible. There were also 4 steps up to the office to check in and out. I didn't participate in breakfast so I don't know what that was like. Room was very small and became very warm with the heat on 19. If you were going to be out all day at meetings or tourist things it would be OK. Parking was $10 a night.
This is budget, but tidy and clean. My suite at the back of the building was well away from any road noise. The staff are helpful and friendly. The hotel, in a small older style, is close to good public transport. Get yourself an Opal card to use for economical travel anywhere around Sydney and beyond (within New South Wales).
Very basic accommodation and breakfast. Staff were pleasant and friendly. Parking was abysmal. None was available at the hotel but they provided some very tight spots in an area around some flats nearby. It was hard to get in and out of the allocated spots. The location was central, 15 minutes walk to Mater hospital and there were a couple of great cafes for lunch and breakfast five minutes walk away.
Due to a very last minute business trip to Sydney and what must have been a conference taking up most of the accommodation options in the area, I stayed for 1 night at the North Shore Hotel. The hotel is walking distance from the central business area of North Sydney and across the road from a large field / park. My room was satisfactory - very old and has definitely seen better days. Ultimately it did the job as a place to sleep however I wouldn't rush back.
Too expensive!!! Bathroom not excellent for the price, too old also no windows or aerator. Some light bulbs burnt out. Room fridge empty. No water provided. Only a towel for the shower, no face towel provided. Well, if you do not mind wipe your face where you wipe your bottom! Nobody in reception after hours, evening and night. No instruction anywhere who to contact in an emergency or when in need of someone. Internet $5 per hour. Most hotels provide free internet. My parents and me could not sleep for all 3 nights, as our room (family room) overlooks to the breakfast room, and the breakfast starts at 7am. Not the best way to wake up during your holiday.
Wow, well firstly it looks nothing like what it does on the internet. The rooms are extremely small and not clean and we had advised that we were taking a baby who is under 1 and had made several calls as was taking own portable cot. They put us on second floor up stairs, no room to open cot as rooms are that small, broken glass in bathroom. We had paid extra for car parking...be warned it is parking against a fence in a run down unit block a few doors down. Very hard to get in and out and once parked would be parked in by other guests, so difficult to move. We decided not to stay and checked out and will not return. Still paid for night accommodation no refund.
The house next door to this hotel houses noisy students with a movement sensor floodlight directly pointed at the window of the room I was allocated. The light kept switching on all night. This would be fine except the window had cheap blinds that didn't cover half the glass surface. I stayed in the hotel for multiple nights and managed 4 hours sleep each night. This place needs curtains, paint, holes in the walls to be repaired and a good clean. There were literally multiple holes in the wall in my room. Who knows when the carpet was last cleaned. I wasn't expecting this place to be amazing. It is in a good location and it's cheap. What I also wanted was a clean, quiet room where I could sleep without a spotlight in my room.
