Nice and quiet

Posted Apr 24, 2016
Pros: Although small the room was comfortable.
Location: No restaurants found that could be walked to. But there is quick and easy access to the train station.
The room was small clean and for the most part quiet. But I could hear person in the room next door as they moved around the room. There are no restaurants close in the evening.

Pros: Great location, comfortable bed.
Cons: internet and a valet to carry luggage
Location: Everything is very close, the rocks and circular key.
Although advertised as free Wi-Fi it was almost non existent in the room, you had to leave your room and move to the communal lounge to get it.. No good for lots of luggage as no elevator. Rooms are extremely small.

Pros: Location
Cons: No breakfast, but we found some close cafes

I'm only writing this to fill in the space. It was fine. Just stay.

Main Problem NO LIFT

Posted Feb 22, 2016
Pros: Staff was nice
Cons: Picture on Expedia of the staircase is turned sideways. I didn't even realize it was a staircase but thought it was a paneled wall.
That was not obvious on Expedia's website. You have to climb 2 sets of stairs just to get to the reception. Then more stairs to get to the rooms unless you manage to get a room on the reception floor. There's no one to help with the bags. This would probably not be a problem for someone young who is only staying in Australia a week or so and traveling light. For that person this hotel is close to the circular quay, the opera house, the rocks, and the botanical gardens, plus lots of good restaurants and pubs. For those of us in our 70's spending a month traveling through Australia with a large suitcase this hotel is less than ideal. It would also not be good for anyone starting a cruise from Sydney due to luggage needed on board ship. Would not stay here again.

Nobody helps to carry the luggage. Stairs only. Floor is slippery. Bed cover is filthy. The service is not up to standard.

Large room, very convenient location close to everything in CBD and Wynyard train station. Hotel is very tired, bathroom stank.
