Great getaway into Sydney with friends

We had a great time at this hotel It just needs someone to polish and dust the lovely furniture and stairs In the bedrooms a good thorough clean and polish. Needs new bathrooms or a very good clean It would then be amazing for its position Could recommend

Clean & comfortable

For the price, this accommodation is really good value. Room was clean and comfortable, had a double shower. Smallish window, but a nice outlook. It's great being so close to Central station and there are lots of nice restaurants nearby: MoVida Sydney, Billy Kwong's, Bill's, Bourke St Bakery, etc. Foveaux St is a killer but great for leg workout! It was a little noisy with the comings & goings of other guests, but for the night's sleep I used earplugs and was undisturbed until I woke in the morning. Will definitely stay here again.
