“The dirtiest place, the ugliest service”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

I booked ensuite room and paid extra to check in early; but on the day they offered dirty shared bathroom; yuck! When i disputed this; they couldn't accomodate so refunded my money on the day but had withdrawn money back from my bank account later that day (never to leave your card details with this hotel). I disputed this too and instead of apologising and refunding; they blamed a new staff member so to settle the issue they offered a free room instead (ensuite). Upon my return (dont' want to detail their conduct) they charged me for early check in but the room was only available just before 11am. The bathroom in this room was dirty with cockroaches and insects roaming along the walls. I took pictures of these and forwarded to the regulatory bodies and requested a review of thier star rating.

Room Tip: This place is good for backpacking with shared accomdation but I will think twice before leaving my...

Location is great, floors every dirty - had a shower not only was I showering under a dripping tap once dry and had walked around a bit my feet were as black as the ace of spades. Iron but no ironing board? Dining table but no sink or kitchenette? Doona with no Doona cover sheet? Deluxe king room had a shared bathroom but queen has a personal bathroom?
Staff were very polite and accommodating. Schindler rules.

This place has such a great location right next to central train station & a large bus station. Woolworths just up the road, pub next door, $10 meals on the other side (lovely). On arrival they were very nice people & willing to assist wherever.
Modern place with lovely beds! Was extremely comfortable to sleep in. Big open areas.

Only bad thing I can say is that due to the place having no windows to open it gets stuffy and so can't let in fresh air. Had air con though.

I was traveling on a limited budget so I stayed at this place after I got a deal via Priceline.com. The location was very convenient to the place where the conference took place (5 min walk). Also, this hotel is only 5 min walk from the central station. The only problem is the shared bathroom issue.

the hotel is in good location,located next to central station, it's only take us 5 mins to walk to the hotel,there are many shops, 24hours convenient shop,café,restaurant and bar around.

staff was friendly and helpful, we booked a room with shared bathroom, we don't have to wait as there r 3 bathrooms to share. cleaner clean the bathroom regularly,providing everything we need like toiletries,towel,hair dryer...big kitchen and spacious living room

fully equipped kitchen except microwave,hope the owner can get one as it's quite important

the only thing that I want to complain is the pillow,it's not comfy
other than that,everything is nice

Shared bathroom! Lousy service! Room was not ready when we arrived and when we finally we allowed in they lost part if our luggage! We did not have our own bathroom, shared shower nearly overflowed. Never again!! Was drying hair in 2 inches of water as shower are water did not drain. Window looked on to brick wall of adjoining place.

I had a vey plesant time at posh hotel in sydney central! the hotel had great staff and majorly the room prices were very cheap compared to other hotels around the area. think it was $150 compared to 199 around the corner
the room had every thing that you would need but its just alot bigger than tradition hotel rooms and clean!
the beds were really funky and best best bed!
best thing was it was right oppsite the UTS building where i was visiting and close to darling harbour conventional centeres:)

Room Tip: King beds that are huge and cheap
