Great value Motel

I thought the City Lodge was great value for what I was looking for (a clean comfortable room for three night at a reasonable price). I found the book in staff very helpful. I found the room very clean and tidy and a great location in the middle of Sydney. I did not find the street noise much of a problem. I will be staying there again on October.

Two day layover

Excellent location; shame about the cockroach in the bathroom, the lack of daylight and the steps to reception.

The Worst!

I have travelled the World and would rate this Hotel as one of the worst I have ever stayed in. The air conditioner did not work, the power point control was held together with 'blue tack' and had to be fixed. The toilet had a problem and also a handwritten sign on the 'loo' said ..'And don't use too much toilet roll'... Good location but would have been more comfortable on the street.

Expected much better for a hotel

Even though it was for one night I would not recommend it at all for Family etc. It had an atmosphere such as a Back packers hotel

Rated just above Backpackers

No mention that there are no lifts and it is 2 floors just to get to reception. If .. someone is at reception. No bell to ring to get attention. Was promised an early arrival but they allowed the previous customer a late checkout! Told to come back in the hour .. gave them 2.5 hrs and it still wasnt ready. Told us to walk another floor up to the 'lounge'. Tatty dirty chairs and the TV was broken. Room was so small it was difficult to walk around the bottom of the bed. TV could not get good reception. Staff were in control of the air con which was for 3 rooms. They turned the air con off at 5pm making it stifling in the room. After complaining, they grudgingly turned it back on. The staff wore flip flops and were noisy on wooden floors and going up and down the stairs. Also constantly slamming the office door. No rest at all. Extremely disappointed.

Beware

TRAVELLERS BEWARE. Do not book into this hotel unless you are an élite athlete or a pack-horse accustomed to climbing a large number of steep, narrow steps while carrying luggage – and that’s just to get to Reception! This hotel has no lift in spite of the obvious need for one. The next challenge is to climb 4 flights of equally steep narrow steps to the room. My confidence did not improve when entering the small room with stained carpet and large dirty scuff marks on the wall. We stayed about 5 minutes which is how long it took to search and book another hotel on my iPhone and arrange for a taxi to take us there. This second hotel was kind enough to allow us to inspect the room before handing over payment. For the first time in my life I was willing to forfeit one night’s accommodation ($199) rather than stay in a hotel. To finish on a positive note, the receptionist was genuinely apologetic. She offered another room on the Reception floor. It was no improvement on the previous room. What a job she must have!

Comfortable hotel with more than usual amenities

Things I loved about this hotel: it's location, the fact that it has a full kitchen and lounge area for guests in addition to the rooms, the balcony, room layout and friendly staff. Things I was a little less impressed with: the carpets need replacing, the vents in the bathrooms apparently need to be replaced by fans (the signs say that if you leave the bathroom door open or even slightly ajar the steam will trigger the smoke detector), the disability-unfriendly stairs (you have to be able to walk at least 2 flights of stairs) in order to access your room/the kitchen/the lounge. I would happily stay again, and would recommend it to others.

Central but no lift

Just about accessible from inside Wynyard station - but the 1st floor start is reached by a narrow and steep double flight of stairs, with no lift. Check-in was easy and no problem. The room was a reasonable size but some of the TV channels suffered from static disruption which should not have been the case. There was no door to the bathroom, which was partially cut off from the bedroom with a curtain, but this did not close completely - if you need privacy you will have to ask other occupants to leave the room! No catering facilities in the hotel but there are handy restaurants, cafes, etc., just outside the front door.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

George Street, Pitt Street, run either side of the hotel, even walking to Paddy's Market is only 20 minutes away or you could try the City Free Shuttle bus. Plenty of Arcades/Malls, etc. Dining is all around and both Circular Quay and Darling Harbour are easy walks.
