Reviewed 7 December 2015

This place is run by a little man who always mentions the " owner " one suspects he is the owner and is just a nosy person. The place is full of hookers and drug addicts and at 550-00 per week for a 1 bedroom dive is a poor choice for anyone wanting to stay in Sydney.

There is simply no place on earth like Australia. There's no place in Australia like Sydney. There's no place in Sydney like King's Cross, and there's no place in Kings Cross like the Crescent on Bayswater. The staff at this fabulous hotel is just plain unbelievably friendly, helpful, professional, alert, disciplined and concerned about each guest. They literally treat you...

Crescent is an interesting place ... a lot of occupants are residents, so there isn't a touristy vibe. Reception is staffed intermittently (check especially if arriving late or on a weekend). But, the room I stayed in was spacious, comfortable bed and useful kitchenette (very few places for this price have a kitchen). The wifi situation is interesting - you...

The moment I walked in, I was impressed with this boutique hotel, the chic design, the hanging artworks and the cozy lounge makes one feel at home. The quaint guests’ lounge with its comfortable sofa with the internet, coffee/tea bar, microwave and tables facing the television gives one enough space to move around the hotel when you feel like going...

We had booked three nights here and when we arrived to our room we were shocked at what we found. Dirty, torn curtains, rice over the floor, used soap in the bathroom. This place is not clean at all. The reception is only manned limited hours each day so there was no one to contact. We didn't stay of course...

We last stayed here 14 years ago, and we had very special memories about the place. It was pretty decent then, but I don't think anything has been done to the place in the intervening time. Shabby in the extreme, run down, and the junkie chatting up the reception lady didn't help. To make matters worse, the balcony door to...

Having had to spend an extended business trip in Sydney recently, it was brilliant to find this 'home away from home' at such reasonable rates. Sure the rooms (studios & 1 bedrooms) could do with a lick and a polish but they are sunny, all have balconies, and are in the heart of a plethora of restaurants and bars. Sydney's...

Staying in Kings Cross

Neighbourhood Profile
Kings Cross
Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The Cross," Sydney's red light district. These new rules have encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the area, as well as organic markets on Saturdays. The area's nightclubs are still popular with youngsters, however, who will dance to the early morning hours on weekend nights. There are plenty of artifacts from Kings Cross' shady past when gangsters and liquor houses owned the place. Today, one can still find a variety of adult entertainment venues in this evolving area.
