Cheap and cheerful

Posted Sep 28, 2014
Pros: Location, price
Cons: It's basic but fine
Location: Close to wynyard station. But the major bonus was Frankie's - great pizza and a superb bar. The wonderful state library is at east end of the street.
Basic but definitely worth the very reasonable price. Great central location, with the outstanding Frankie's pizza and bar just across the street!

Pros: Absolutely Nothing
Cons: Cleanliness Attention to detail Appliances that work
Location: It was central
Upon arrival the first thing noticed was the curtain falling off the tracks. The room on the first floor near reception was noisy, all room noises echoed. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and we couldn't believe if the steam from a shower triggered an alarm we would be issued with a $750 fine. The morning proved to be even worse when after boiling the electric kettle, due to a foul taste, we could not drink our coffee as the jug had obviously boiled dry and burned. I would never consider returning to this hotel and would never recommend this to anyone.

Good location.

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: good location
Location: It is walking distance to most of downtown Sydney and to the suburbs a short bus or train ride. Great pub across the street. Good lunch or brekkie.
Good location, easy walking distance to the Quay, the Rocks, the Opera House. Connection with bus transportation was easy. Great Pub right across the street. Early morning fruit vendor just down the block. Only draw back was no lift. (I was on the 4th floor.) Staff were friendly and willing to help. I would stay there again.

Floors need replacing

Posted Aug 9, 2014
Very basic. Woke up every time other guests moved around hotel. Floors need replacing. Floating floors that feel in places you will fall through.

Take your business somewhere else

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: Not alot
Cons: TV Bed Assistance to get bags up stairs
Location: Location is Excellent!
- Dont go here with a suitcase (had to carry 20kg up 4 flights of stairs which is not easy) - TV Channels were not set. I was required to Auto Tune TV and could only access channel 9 - Double bed was not a double bed (two singles side by side) - Check out opens at 8.30 am so if you need to check out early it is not the easiest - I was advised that if I boiled the kettle in the room there was the potential to set of their smoke alarm. If indeed the smoke alarm was set off I was the one who would need to pay for the fire response.

Not worth the money

Posted Jun 18, 2014
For $150 a night it was not worth it. Beds were completely worn, felt like I was sleeping on share metal springs all night. Also I had to reset air conditioner to have it actually work. There was also not an Australian person in sight. Not being racist but if you are working in a place like that you should be able to speak an understand English. Over all not happy with the stay and would not reccomend it. Your better off spending an extra few dollars and go to a decent hotel.

Strange hotel

Posted Jun 9, 2014
Strange set up. Bathrooms have no privacy an is pokey. When sharing a room it can become a bit awkward. Good price for location. Toilets blocked on first use. Reminds me of hotels you would find in vietnam.
