Stayed for three nights, it is not easy to obtain inexpensive city centre accomodation in most cities, so I was happy to find this one. There is no reception, you check in at the bar, we received a friendly welcome and the key to our room.
The lift is a challenge, two heavy doors which have to be opened manually, not easy when you have luggage. Our room was basic but clean and comfortable, obviously it would be better if ensuite, but I was aware when booking that the bathroom was in the corridor and shared. However, it did not present a problem.
The hotel is on a busy street so there is some traffic noise. This was compounded by road works which took place 24 hours,and looks as if it will be ongoing for some time to come, so earplugs would be a good idea. .
Breakfast is DIY. The room is on the third floor, there are cereals, fruit, bread, etc.you serve yourself and wash up your dishes.You can use it 24 hours a day, and there is a microwave, so if you wanted to bring in some food to heat it could be a cheaper alternative to eating out, which is generally quite expensive.
We ate one night in the hotels restaurant, the food was good and reasonably priced.
The location is good, just a short walk to the opera house, and to Darling Harbour.
The staff were all very friendly, we had a few drinks in the bar which was often busy, prices were about average.
If you have flown to Sydney, you can get a train and the nearest station is less than five minutes from the hotel.
If you don;t mind basic accomodation, then this is an ideal choice, we would stay there again.
