Very comfortable room, quite spacious as well. Very comfortable beds, nice shower and being able to park your car on the premises is handy, especially as you can keep your car there until 6pm on your check out day! Able to walk to your medical appointments is great.
Close to King Street, Newtown. Lots of restaurants along King Street. Easy access to town along Parramatta Road, via bus. The hotel is clean and starting to look a little dated. The elevators need adjustment as they don't match the level of the floors. One woman fell over the lip and hurt her knees in the fall. Good breakfasts as well.
There are only a few things I need when I'm travelling on business: a clean bathroom, an iron that works and a decent bed. This hotel managed to fail on all three of these. The bathroom was disgusting. There was mould, balls of hair from previous guests, the walls and tiles were cracked and peeling, the mirror was falling apart. Part of the iron was missing and it leaked rust on one of my shirts. The bed, arguably the best part of the room, was blessedly average. The room as a whole was incredibly dated, with no convenient light switches and not enough power points. The aircon only blew hot air into an already too hot room (luckily, the window opened, letting in cool air and the soothing sounds of Sydney traffic and screaming drunks). Everything smelled like cheap air freshener and cigarettes. All in all, truly disgusting. The only upside was the restaurant - the breakfast buffet was pretty standard, but dinner at the restaurant was actually enjoyable. It's the only reason this hotel doesn't get a 1/5. If you have any other options, do not stay here.
In a great location. 50 metres to bus stop to go into Central station in 10 minutes. Choice of eating places close by. Friendly staff and good buffet breakfast. Decor a little tired but was clean and comfortable. Room was quite spacious and quiet.
Stayed one night with my mum, we were here to visit RPA so needed something close, paid $199 plus $25 for parking which was pretty steep, considering the state of the room. Very outdated and kind of "scruffy". Bathroom had chipped mirrors and doors, mould in the bath and tiles, hair and dust on the vanity, didn't feel special to stay there at all, considering we could have got a 5 star room at the same price. Walls were paper thin as well, we could hear the neighbours TV until all hours. Hallway was noisy too with people coming and going. Beds were comfy but we were disappointed really.
I stayed at this hotel for one night late last year. It is well located for people visiting RPA Hospital or the University of Sydney. Aside from that, there was not a lot to recommend it. The decor was very 1980s, there was quite a bit of noise from the corridor, and the ordered room service breakfast did not arrive. Comfortable enough, but overpriced for what it is.
Having read some of the reviews on this site, I was expecting the worst. However, the place is not too bad. Admittedly, it is quite old and in need of an update. But if you can look past the tired interior, it is a basic, clean, well run establishment. Not flashy but functional. Would improve with a good refurb. I slept well on the one night I was there.
Stayed two nights. This is our usual stop. RPA close and as we need to go to st Vincent's transport is at the door. Camperdown pub close for dinner as well as Italian and fast food. Iron cafe great for breakfast and lunch. Rooms are dated but staff helpful and friendly. Pay for parking is a bugger.
The room rate for the hotel is very cheap according to Sydney standards. For your money you get a very basic tired and outdated room. The pictures of the hotel on the hotel's website are a bit deceiving. The traffic noise from nearby Parramatta Road is overwhelming. The staff were friendly and the Danish pastries at breakfast were exceptional. If you can afford a better hotel, I would strongly recommend giving this hotel a miss.
The hotel is in need of some TLC but the staff were happy and helpful. The lifts are a but hit and miss but get to the floor required eventually, the detour was exciting anyway. We stayed on a weekend and the restaurant doesn't do dinner on weekends, only breakfast. Also the bar is shut weekends. However if you walk about 150 metres uphill you will find a pub that serves cold beer and nice pub grub even though it is the weekend. The age of the hotel is reflected in the room cost, which was reasonable for Sydney and the beds and pillows were just fine. The room was large and it had a fridge too. Very nice coffee at breakfast was a plus.
