Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very nice place and very comfortable room. Would definitely come back. Was a really hot night but the air-con made it so you could sleep comfortably and for someone who doesn't have air-con at home I can promise you it is more than a welcome relief. Quick checkout as well, I have no complaints what ever.

the hotel was well located to the CBD, the staff were very friendly and helpful plus checking in and out was quick and painless.

If the air conditioners were working properly I would have said...

We had a room with a double bed and a bunk. On the negative it was pretty pokey, the front door nearly hit the double bed for example. First impression of the room was not the best a bit old and used. The noise from people walking on the timber floors was loud even though it is carpeted. A herd...

I booked the hotel unsure of what it would present. At first look when I went to walk up the stairs I was somehow disappointed of the steps and lift. They do not look modern. However, I spoke to this lady at the reception and she was welcoming and had a good welcoming presentation. I checked in very fast with...

Very secure feeling that hotel is locked to outsiders after hours. Not a really good nights sleep with air conditioning too cold. Kitchen and laundry facilities fantastic. Thank goodness for a good sized lift.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
