Positive Reviews

Impressive service from great staff

Everyone here is very friendly and attentive. If there is a problem, they respond quickly and if this necessitates a room change, the process is quick and usually results in an impressively upgraded alternative room. Members of staff are great.

An unbeatable location

With Paddy's Market across the street and Central Station being an easy walk away, guests are thrilled with this convenient location. It is reportedly an easy walk to Sydney’s Convention Centre too.

Rooms are simply super value

'Simple', 'modern', and 'clean', are words used by guests to describe the rooms. They are also found to be spacious. Courtyard rooms are thought to be particularly spacious and impressive. Overall, guests like the lack of expensive clutter in the rooms; something that reflects in a very appealing tariff which is designed not to strain the wallet.

Negative Reviews

Noise-related problems

Guests report noise problems from two main sources. Within the hotel, there is corridor noise and from neighbouring rooms. Soundproofing seems not to have been a feature of the hotel’s renovation. Further noise comes from the neighbouring karaoke bar.

No air conditioning in the lobby

The reviews reveal that the lobby here does not have air conditioning. Guests note that it can be a very hot and stuffy place to pass through in the summer months.
