        Friendly helpful service”

        Great location at a budget price

        The manager was amazingly helpful, well above expectation. After arriving in Sydney with heavy suitcases we rang the hotel to see if they had room to store the suitcases until the room was available. The Manager offered the room immediately (as it had not been rented out the night before) at no additional charge. The following day, the manager assisted us to find secure parking for our hire car even though we were checking out. We received better service at this budget hotel than we have at other expensive hotels. I would be happy to stay here again. The facilities are basic but clean, as you would expect for the price. We found the location an easy walk from Circular Quay and loads of cafe/restaurants.

        The manager, Sally, went out of her way to help me with renting a car. She was great! The room was basic but well equipped with TV, fridge, microwave, kettle and crockery and cutlery. It was only a 30 minute walk to the harbor. There is a supermarket and restaurants close by. Perfect for a short stay in Sydney when on a budget.

        affordable price, good location, near supermarkets and eateries, easy to get shuttle bus/van to airport, 30 mins walk to hyde park or take the bus or train from kings cross (10 mins walk from hotel) to the city and circular quay

        it is located in a quiet and peaceful place, about 10 mins' walking distance to kings cross. woolworths is just 5 mins' walk - very convenient to buy foodstuff as it opens till 12 midnight every night. pizza shop is also nearby. on sundays, there is a weekend market at kings cross. no worries walking at kings cross (darlinghurst road) even at 11pm on a sat night. our room was ready eventhough we arrived early at 12.30pm. if room is not yet available, guests can leave their bags in a room next to the reception. the quad room can accommodate 4 adults quite comfortably and has an ensuite shower/toilet, tv, fridge, microwave oven, tea/coffee-making facilities, a table fan and a cupboard. the room was cool during the day when we were there. ample lighting in the room. 3 large bags can be conveniently stored away under the single bed. staff were helpful and nice. checkout was easy - we left at 5.30am and left the keys in the room - no fanciful checkout process - how nice! although there was a bit of smell in the room, this can be easily addressed by getting a container or two of activated charcoal to absorb the smell. the beds were comfortable, the kids slept well throughout the night. 4 large clean towels were provided and could be hung at the double decker beds. need a suitable towel / clothes hanger (to place clothes when taking shower) and slightly bigger area to place the toiletries in the bathroom especially when there are 4 adults in the room.

        Central tree-lined location. Friendly, helpful reception. The provision of fridge and micro-wave in room plus tea and coffee-making facilities.

        This is is a budget hotel whose furnishings and carpets have seen better days. There is no lift so heavy luggage had to be carried up several flights of stairs. However the excellent reception staff arranged for it to be carried upstairs for us. The hotel is in a central, pleasant location near to Sydney's Botanical Gardens.

        Good location adequate facilities ”

        The rate is acceptable compared to other similar type of room we took. Location is good. Easy access to public transport esp buses and trains. Easy to get food esp halal food. Near to convenience store EZmart and Woolworth. Microwave oven and full sized refrigerator really help us a lot during our stay.

        A bit disappointed”

        By looking at their website, I thought they had a car park at the hotel. However, I was surprise that we had to buy parking ticket at $30 for each entry to the car park, and it took about 10-15 minutes to walk from the hotel to the car park, it's very inconvenient for our family with young kid and baby. It was really hard to find a car park around the hotel area. The beds made noise when we turned around. The bathroom is small and old. The staff was nice and friendly.

        this place is a dump!!”

        nothing!!

        This hotel is very old and run down. It is obvious the owners are not interested in the comfort of their guests, just in making money. This place needs a total makeover. The room stunk of damp, the bathroom stunk of mould. THE most uncomfortable bed l have ever slept in. Every thing in the room was old, stained and dirty, tiny 20y/o TV. Be warned you will also be asked to leave a $150 deposit for the keys. Avoid this tip at all costs. Don't beleive me, just Google reviews for this place.

        Run-down hotel; noisy location; room was not serviced at all for four days

        Room was relatively clean; there was a double bed (which I had requested) and a small, clean bathroom. Receptionist was exceptionally friendly and helpful.
