Great location

Great location if you like Chinatown and handy walk to all entertainment areas. Rooms are very small but comfortable. Perfect for what we are looking for in dining.

Some good things and a few not so good.

The location is very good and very close to Darling Harbour. The negative is it needs refurbishment. I also found the gym poor, it only has six pieces of equipment. Breakfast is OK but the setting is like a school canteen.

It's good value overall!

I stay 1 night though, I am happy with the cleanliness, space wide, amenities, facilities it provides. Most important to me is the good location, it just take me to cross the road to have a nice oriental breakfast in China Town! And also having my car parked in the Entertainment Centre Car Park for $30 a day is really a deal in Sydney! In short, I enjoy my stay there : )

Great Location

So close to Darling Harbour, Paddys Markets, China Town restaurants. Lovely room with beautiful bathroom. I had a corner room on 8th floor with floor to ceiling glass and whilst the view was good the only drawback was the horrendous noise all night long from the busy traffic location. The rooms with small windows were probably much quieter.

Close to everything

Enjoyed staying here as it was close to everything and felt comfortable in the room. However, expensive 'parking' My car was parked in a tow away zone and was unlocked. Not worth it for $90
