    Best value for money.”

    Good location. Friendly staff. Good value.

    I would stay at the lodge again definitely and would highly recommend it to any traveler. The lodge is in the very quiet area of Potts Point (Kings Cross). The bus stop to the city center (Town Hall) is only about 1-2 min walk from the lodge, so most attractions are within 30 mins by bus and/or train. Also, grocery stores are nearby, so are restaurants for any budget. We took advantage of its location to the fullest; we enjoyed every moment of staying at the lodge. By the way, we staying at the lodge for 3 weeks. Lastly, I should like to thank Tracy the manager and Benoit the friendly French man for making our holiday in Sydney one of the best holidays ever!

    Good rooms and good price”

    Rooms basic but all that is required for a short stay - spotlessly clean!

    Stayed here for one night. Kings Cross is not the nicest of areas (in my opinion) but this hotel is more towards Potts Point and the nicer end of Kings Cross. Hotel doesn't look much from the outside but room was great for what we needed. Staff very friendly and always available to answer questions. Shared bathroom is not ideal but for this price in Sydney it was not a problem. Bathrooms all seemed to be pretty new and were always spotlessly clean - also never had to wait for a bathroom. Would stay here again.

    A great place ”

    This is such a great hotel to stay at Sydney. First, Its quite close to the CBD, the bus and train station. We even can reach to the Opera house just by walking through the botanic garden. Second, we have every thing we need, the very warm bed, nice and large balcony with street view and a well equiped kitchen corner. Though the bathroom is outside the room and its shared, its always clean for us. Next, the staff is very nice and helpful. Finally, we like and miss this hotel when we move to another city, with a similar price , the equipment, service and everything are not as good as what we had at Macleay. We'll stay there when we're back to Sydney.

    Best boutique hotel ”

    It was a lovely and pleasant 7-night stay. The hotel is newly renovated and given a new name The Jensen, absolutely clean and cozy. The staff is amiable and helpful too. I was there for a yoga teacher training, and it is very near to my training venue — lots of cafes and eateries around the corner. The supermarket is just across a small road. Tranquil surroundings. The only pro I can say is, my room is in front of the garage, and every morning, the truck will pick up the garbage. I enjoyed my stay.

    kind of cold in winter

    This is a good, basic option in Potts Point that is similar to other places in the area. Plenty of options of dining abound, and you can easily get downtown. I would recommend it for solo travelers or those who are looking for a reasonable room at a good price. It is a little bit bigger than other rooms in the area and overall I'm satisfied with the place.

    The Sydney Lodges group is a collection of boutique hotels located in the Kings Cross/Potts Point and Randwick/Coogee areas of Sydney. The lodges offer a range of accommodation options to suite most travel budgets.

Well, now there is an option, the Sydney Lodges option; clean, comfortable and modern accommodation for a fraction of the price of other similar hotel rooms around Sydney. The Sydney Lodges group is forever continuing to prove that budget accommodation can still be stylish, clean, comfortable and convenient. Take a look at our diverse range of lodge

    Better than expected. Quiet and secure location up Macleay st. Clean and compact room, with kettle/coffee, fridge, m/wave, sink, comfortable bed. No 311 bus stops nearby and goes to The rocks/near Circular Quay. Kings Cross station is a short walk. Clean modern toilet/excellent showers are a few steps from any room. A Woolworths nearby, with lots of good cheap eating a few hundred metres towards Kings Cross. As we expected, there are stairs as in most established Sydney buildings.

    Went to Sydney for Rugby League Grand Final. We were on a limited budget and stayed 5 nights here. Location great, the 311 bus 50 meters up the road or a 5 min walk to Kings Cross Station. Woolworths next door stays open till midnight. Great coffee at the Deli 30 meters away. Value cafe 2 blocks up the hill serving meals. Pizza joint very good. Staff friendly and helpful. Shared bathroom facilities kept clean. Area seemed safe day and night as Police stn IS at the top of the hill.

    Receptions are helpful & thoughtful; rooms are clean & comfortable

    It's convenience to reach train and many more places to getting around in Sydney. Unfortunately, King Cross is a dirtly nightlife area. After walking pass that area, it will be return to peaceful. Receptions are helpful & thoughtful; rooms are clean & comfortable. Since I'm travelling as a tourist whcih meaning wake up early morning, so the construction which is nearby the Macleay couldn't disrupt me. However, it will be noisy if you still in the bed at 8 AM. Overall, it's worth for staying!

    Great staff, top location, excellent value especially for Sydney

    I was staying at ML while my partner was in hospital and the staff were outstanding, friendly and helpful in every way. I had some building noise outside my room and was moved very quickly to a larger room on the quiet side of the building at no extra charge. The ML is in a lovely position in Macleay Street whilst still very central to all transport. You can walk to the city if you wish. There is a large supermarket nearby so self-catering is easy. Also lots of good take aways and restaurants nearby. There is a share bathroom, and as my previous visit, everything was immaculate. I got a great deal with Agoda and it was terrific value for money. I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

    Great, affordable, and well located.”

    It was cheap, private, and in a great location.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. I stayed in a single room. These are very small, but this (or rather the fact that my stay was cheaper for it) was ideal for me. The room was well fitted, with a sink, microwave, fridge, kettle, and toaster, which I found great, because it meant I could save a bit by bringing my own breakfast. The room had a TV which I didn't use. The bed was comfortable, and the stay was very pleasant. The location is fantastic, you are within skipping distance of Kings Cross, and several good looking restaurants and bars, but the hotel itself is far enough away to be quiet. I had no problems whatsoever with noise during my stay. However, if you are thinking about staying here, do make sure you realise that the rooms are small. I was aware of this before I arrived, and was very pleased with it, but would not have had I been expecting a standard sized room. I'd highly recommend it for solo travellers who want to travel cheaply, but also want a bit more privacy and quiet than a backpackers would provide.

    Excellent location 5 mins walk from Kings Cross Station, great base to explore the pubs, restaurants and history of the area. Room itself is small but clean with comfy bed,fridge, TV, kettle plus tea and coffee etc. Shared bathroom was clean and stylish although the water took a while to heat up. Overall was a great place to stay in an interesting part of Sydney

    the microwave in room and sofa for additional person

    Is a nice and clean budget hotel for those with money constraint. We have a shared bathroom which is just a couple of steps away from our room. I like the microwave in our room the most. It comes in really handy when you want to heat up your food. There is a bus stop right infront of the hotel and King Cross train station just 5 mins walk away. It was told that this area is the Sydney red light district with their adult entertainment, but I hardly went out pass 8pm, so it doesn't affect me. And from my room at 2nd floor, it was peaceful and quiet.

    Location; Privacy; Price

    When I first landed in Sydney, I couldn't face a hostel so booked my own room here for a couple of nights because it was on special offer. The room is pretty basic but has everything you need - kettle, microwave and kitchen utensils were all really useful. Short walk to the city centre; bathroom was clean with plenty of hot water. For the price, this is a good option for those wanting their own space.

    Attentive and helpful staff

    Macleay lodge is situated about 7min walk from kings cross station and there are eateries, macdonalds and a supermart along the way, so it is convenient in that aspect. The staff is friendly and helpful in giving suggestions on where to go and what to do in sydney. The room was acceptable with a portable heater, fridge, microwave and and basin area provided. Toilets are shared but are consistently well maintained. A value for money room to stay in!

    Actually. The location wasn't great. A bit far from city . We had to walk 30min from townhall and i felt it is little bit dangerous. But there were some convenience big market(like coles) and cafes . Restaurants around the hotel. Very comfy as well. The room wasnt too big ,however Room was Clean. Peaceful. Very useful and.. microwaves, frige and tiny kitchen was exellent. We can cook toast and coffee everymorning. And i could get new towels and shampoo everyday when i needed. Staff was friendly as well.. And there are one more thing is the shower room was really clean and cleaned every time! i like this hotel.

    Ease of Travel & Helpful staff

    Stayed here for 4 nights and couldn't have wished for a better spot. What made it all the better were the walks we were able to take from the hotel into the botanical gardens and down to the opera house and harbour area. (ask the staff where to go it'll save loads of time) The hotel and itself is a quaint building, with small (bedsit) rooms that were really comfortable and our room had a mini kitchen with all the necessary cutlery etc. The shared bathrooms were not something that we had particularly wanted, but in all honesty, they were kept spotlessly clean and were more than suitable for our purposes. Some people have previously mentioned lack of luggage storage on checking out, but we had no problem. There was a facility to leave your luggage under the stairs in full view of the staff on reception..and it wasn't a problem, even though we left our gear for a whole day due to a overnight bus trip. The staff are extremely helpful, even going out of their way to book us our bus tickets on line the we could not do. The location of the hotel is near Kings Cross Train Station, and the airport shuttle will also drop you off outside the door. A good area for exploring Sydney and all it has to offer. We had a really good stay here.

    tiny but served the purpose”

    Area was great, quiet with options

    the hotel had a great location, on the quiet side of potts point. close enough to the backpackers area but also far enough away. internet isnt worth the trouble. rooms are very small, but clean, comfortable for sleeping and resting. weekends had small market in the park up the street. coffee close, grocery close. no lift so elderly or handicapped should avoid. overall for my needs it was fine. shared bathroom was not a problem, benoit was helpful.

    Good Location and Great staff”

    Staff was helpful and friendly

    Combined with another booking by my friend, we had a four night stay. We were looking for a safe, comfortable and good location place in sydney and the Macleay Lodge covered most of this. Hotel is an older style building but charming. In general, room is very basic and noisy with building works going on that started at about 8am every morning (except weekend). Staff was helpful and friendly. The location is walking distance to King's Cross Station, lots of cafes and restaurants around. King's Cross is the Red Light district, fyi, not recommend for family trip.
