Good, Not GreatPosted Dec 14, 2014
Location: Check out the restaurants/cafes/bars on Stanley Street, a 3-5 minute walk. Also consider the Sydney Explorer Bus, which stops in front of the hotel.
Overall, a good hotel and a good value. But: 1. The free Wi-Fi in the rooms is painfully slow--roughly equivalent to a dial-up connection. There are extra-cost speed upgrade options which, if you stay here and need reliable, fast Wi-Fi, would probably be worth it. 2. The breakfast buffet is a disaster. The food is terrible. Save your money and walk elsewhere. Or try the grocery store next door. 3. Many reviewers rave about the location, but it's not right for everyone. You're right next to Hyde Park and very near the Botanical Gardens, and the Australian Museum is 5 minutes away. But if you want to do touristy things like go to the Opera House, Circular Quay, or the Rocks, you're talking about 15-30 minute walks. That's OK on a nice day, but in the summer heat or rain, that's a hike. Taxis are easy to get and will be quick ride, but Sydney taxis get expensive quickly. So, carefully evaluate where you'll need to go in Sydney before booking this hotel.

Good place to stayPosted Nov 1, 2014
Pros: Location and views
Chose the hotel because it was close to where I would be working. Knew it from when I grew up in Sydney and thought it would be a bit tired but it turned better than I thought. Room was a good size and clean, great view, a good shower. Close to everywhere. Will be back.

Did the Oz trails Blue Mountains, brilliant and ask for tour guide Cameron a legend. The hotel close to all amenities, and the CBD. Thankyou.

Cost effective close to cityPosted Oct 16, 2014
Ticked all the basic boxes for a comfortable stay close to trains and city. Unfortunate fact that we had very noisy people in the room next door so may be I was unlucky or sound proofing not that good? There was a room connecting door? Would stay there again.

Close to night lifePosted Oct 14, 2014
Stay was good, was close to Kings cross, so didnt have to go far. But staff members were not so friendly. I booked two rooms and was told i only had to pay bond for one. Yet when my other guests in room 2 tried to check in they had to put payment down. Staff were not willing to do anything and were very rude and not at all sorry about it.

Staff couldn't be more helpfulPosted Oct 9, 2014
We visited for 2 nights and found this hotel to be exceptional value for money at the price we paid. Spacious room, awesome view, helpful staff, great location. Couldn't fault a thing.

Affordable in good locationPosted Sep 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel, adequate and affordable in convenient location. Definitely not 4 star standard, but a good 3 star. Decor desperately needs updating.

Great locationPosted Sep 17, 2014
We usually stay near Circular Quay but loved the atmosphere and side streets nearby. Great cafés and restaurants that the locals use just a block away.
