Good venue to Sydney Entertainment Centre

Stay at hotel was pleasant. The lighting system in room hard to work out controls could not turn on bathroom light alone - perhaps it had something to do with the fact we had a disabled room. When using shower water went everywhere - the shower curtain could had been longer. Would stay at this hotel again but would ensure a regular room was supplied next time. Did not use any of the fafilities at the hotel.

2 day Business Trip

Everything was fine except breakfast. Given that breakfast is included in the room rate I decided to have something. Breakfast started at 6.30am. I was there at 6.40am. Hot food was either warm or cold. Not good.

Very nice hotel

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in a King-bed, non-smoking room. We found the room to be clean and well appointed, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is ideal if you want to be close to Sydney's Chinatown area. I'll definitely stay here again.

Over Priced

We paid for an Executive Suite which we thought would be much bigger. The room was of normal room size and had 2 queen size beds in it. The room was very cramped and you could not open the fridge properly because of the beds. We had 2 adults and 2 children and there was no room to move. In the bathroom there was a very small bath, the shower door did not have a handle on the inside. All in all it was very poor value for money and we would not consider staying there again and I will be containg the hotel direct as well.
