Room was a bit disappointing

I recently stayed a another hotel of similar value and the rooms were much higher quality. The Vulcan room was not set out well, the bathroom was ordinary although clean, it was noisy and the room was quite hot.

Great business location

Stayed for work training course - 5 min walk from Australasian Beauty College. Perfect for me. Staff very helpful & friendly. Rooms clean, shower FANTASTIC furnishings just a bit worn. Close to everything - just a short taxi ride away for me as I was travelling on my own & didn't want to use public transport.

Excellent staff and value for money

The staff were very friendly and helpful. All our needs were catered for. The room was in the older part of the hotel but was as good or not better than some we have stayed in. The owner went out of his way to ensure we were able to get our car out of the secure parking after the code did not work. He came to the car park to ensure we could get the car out. It was just one of a number of things the staff did for the customers . We will be definately be going back in the very near future.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Darling Harbour has a lot of attractions especially on the weekends. Shopping centre is not far away. A nice leisure stroll from the hotel. Lots of places to eat.

Nice place for short stay

The worst part about the hotel was getting there- it was not close to anything and quite hard to find. Not near many attractions either. The fourth floor has no elevator. However, when we arrived we were lucky enough to receive a free upgrade in rooms.The service was friendly and very helpful. It was a delightful stay for one night- would not recommend for long stays.

Perfect for Short Stay

The location is convenient for inner city exploration, and outer suburbs connections. It is close to fish market and Sydney Uni. The surrounding area is quiet and relatively safe because it is right next to UTS, and off-street parking is plenty (money-saving if you are road tripping, because the ticket time is from 10am - 9pm, perfect for overnight parking, which is what I did). Staff is friendly and room is clean. on Saturday, might have people rock up in the hallway with some minor noises. remember to have your own toothbrushes and pastes and combs.

Won't go back

We walked into the room and found cockroach on the floor. Called up customer service straight away and they refused to change the room and only ask the housekeeper to kill the cockroach. Awful!
