Family weekend for Sydney Vivid

Charged for parking in motel, facilities very dated, charge for internet. Was very concerned using the old lifts, the smell of mould hit us as soon as lift doors opened to our room. Mould in bathroom, no exhaust fans, very dated saggy mattresses on pullout lounge beds (that were ripped), black stains on our daughters sheets. Even the queen bed was 2 single mattresses put together. You can hear the shower and toilet in the room next door when used. In all, for over $300 a night, the worst place we have ever stayed in Sydney for the money. On top of the worst nights sleep (no lovely quilts on bed either), they tried to charge me twice for parking...Never again!!!

Just right

The hotel is a little old but my room was large and clean and very quiet. It is within walking distance of Central Station. The hotel offered fantastic value as I bought my accomodation on special. I was very satisfied with every aspect.

Good location but old hotel

Room was spacious and there was a bathtub. Staff was really friendly and our rooms were clean up everyday even though we did not put the tag outside our door. It is an old hotel, the lift often has a stench that seems to emit from the carpet everyday. The room is also old but the sheets are clean. There is wifi at the lobby only and we need to get separate password and login ID every 24hours from the counter. The lobby also have a touch screen monitor that you can use the google and look for places of interest. Overall, acceptable hotel.

Was just ok

When we had a problem with the shower, someone came and fixed it right away. However, the bed was hard and uncomfortable. The elevator, despite being across the hall and not behind a wall, could be constantly heard as a low swooping hum. The lobby smelled strange (perhaps a very strong air freshener?) Still, good value for the money and made a short stay in Sydney affordable.

dated but spacious

This place is a little out of the way but still located close to UTS buildings and facilities. The rooms are big but the overall place seems a little dated, circa late 70s or early 80s. The bed is comfy, the view limited and usually of the residential units across the road. There are restaurant facilities which I have never used, there is no wi-fi but the hotel offers net access via an alternative service.

Ideally located

In town for a sporting event on the Saturday morning, this hotel was perfectly situated for us to go for a walk for dinner as well as walk to and from the event the next day. The staff were friendly and helpful, particulary when I was having issues with remembering my credit card PIN!. The room was a good size and the parking was great value for money as we left the car parked from 6:50pm that night through until 4:15pm the next day . We would definitely stay here again.
