The room was clean and fantastic for its price. The location is perfect, right at the heart of Sydney on George St, a short walk to Central station. The hotel is secure with access given to room guests only after mid-night.

We always stay at this hotel for comfort convenience reliability. The staff are very attentive and will put in their best efforts to supply your needs ie we get off the train at Central at midday, just a quick walk away and the rooms are always ready. So convenient to all of the shops, theatres, art gallery, museum etc either by walking or by quick hops on local transport .Price varies according to market conditions but bearing this in mind it is always reasonable.

Hotel location very convenient. Free shuttle bus to many tourist attractions. Many eating places nearby. But free T.V. channels in the room are very limited. I stayed during the 2012 Olympic games. My stay would be more interesting if I get to watch more Olympic events.

This hotel is widely overpriced for what you get. Rooms are tiny, facilities average. On the plus side, location is brilliant - only a hop, step and jump to Central and pub downstairs is great! Would be much better value if priced around the $170 mark.

Lovely building, charming and classy. Room was small (2 twin beds), and because we were in the back there was hardly a peep from the street Saturday night. Heat has to be turned on from the main desk computer, and that took a few calls (weather had just shifted). Staff was terrific. Parking IS very limited, but we got the general manager's spot over the weekend and it made transferring luggage a breeze. Next door to City Market for last minute souvenirs, great produce, reasonable eats. Easy walk to wharf for the cruise we booked, a bit of a hike to the Opera House. Chinatown area nearby, great choices.

I often stay here for business trips, the rooms can be small but its fine if its a single person or couple. If staying in a twin room it can be a bit small. Good breakfast buffet if you are willing to pay for it, and you can also get dinner. Still has cable broadband which is good for those who don't have wifi.

We stayed here for one night and chose this hotel based on its location which is near Central Station and price. The staff were helpful and the room comfortable. There is some road noise but overall we had a good nights sleep.

The reception was classy and rooms are decent, we stayed for one night because we just needed a place to crash. The room smelled of BO so my friend had to spray his cologne around the room. General necessities provided but you need to bring your own toothbrush! All in all, its okay for a place to stay for the night at a reasonable price.

Staff were extremely helpful, pleasant and professional. Although they have a reasonable breakfast menu, you are locked in to only three options. I enquired about vegetarian /gluten free options and was told that I could only choose from the three options available. This was a bit frustrating as I had provided my own gluten free toast and only wanted to purchase a cup of tea and some scrambled eggs which was clearly available and within reach. I felt a bit like Jack Nicholson in 'Five Easy Pieces'. In the end I was able to negotiate something for breakfast and the Reception staff were as helpful as they could be in the face of a very rigid breakfast system. It left a bit of a 'bad taste' in what was otherwise a very pleasant stay.
