Not a very nice place to live

Hotel Picture and realiaty doesnt match. Hard to find the hotel. No lift so hard to carry luggage. you can hear traffic noise whole night. Also people do the party in the open area on Sunday night or Monday early morning around 12:30 ,1 am and hotel administration let them do that. I could hear the noise from my room. So not happy at all. Repetion personnel was good and helpful

Budget Accommodation Very Friendly Staff

Small accommodation but has all you need for a budget trip. Very convenient location, staff very friendly. I recommend the hotel for couples or singles, the family room was bit small and beds are too high for little kids to climb up. Overall it was good value for money.

Close to railway station

The hotel was clean, but it is in need of refurbishing and updating. There is no lift, only stairs, and you are exposed to the elements even when accessing your rooms. Traffic noise was not an issue even though it is located on a busy road.

Met our needs but would not suit someone with a disability

We were given the impression it was across the road from the railway station when in fact it was 10 minutes walk - it would have been nice to know but wouldn't have made a difference to our booking. The hotel would be enhanced with a facility to get heavy bags up all the stairs, perhaps a dumb waiter, we didn't mind walking up them. The shower in our room had a pathetic little trickle - wahing hair was a challenge! We were quite cosy despite the draw backs, thanks.

decent for the price

nice big family room, 1 double + 2 single beds + lounge, dining table, small kitchenette and en suite. great cheap holiday for family. hot water took ages to come through and water pressure a bit dismal but still usable. It was raining for our stay, reception were more than happy to call a taxi for us and it only cost $10 to king st wharf darling harbour.
