The multiple bad reviews given to this establishment had my husband and I terrified about staying here. After our experience however, I have to chalk it up to some seriously finicky patrons.
This place was great! The location was prime for the price. We literally walked anywhere and everywhere around Sydney; from Darling Harbour, to Sydney Harbour, to Darlinghurst and Paddington. The food nearby was spectacular and the shopping was more than adequate.
The service was extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. They were able to get us into a room immediately after we arrived from our 15 hour flight from the U.S., so we could shower, rest, and get our vacation under way. They helped us check in for our flights and print off our boarding passes without charging us to use the expensive in-room internet service.
The room was ample in size and adequately clean. We even had a fridge to store food, and a stove to heat it up.
My *only* complaint/concern is the street noise. We were on the 9th floor and were frequently woken up by rowdy late night bar patrons, or the usual honking/engine roaring that's experienced in any major metropolitan area. I can't say this is necessarily the fault of the hotel though, unless they were to invest in soundproofing the windows.
In summary, we loved this hotel, and if you're the type of traveler who spends more time seeing the sights than being obsessed with what your hotel room looks like, I think you'll agree.
