“Very small room and dark and not soundproof”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Depressing and dark room. Very small.
No view: facing depressing wall and not soundproof rooms... I could hear a couple going at it all night which was a very sleepless night for me. Uncomfortable bed and the hairs dryer in my room did not work. Poorly maintained rooms.

I will never stay here again.

Buses and taxis at the door, KingsX station 2 minutes away, great restaurants - sensational location.
Room and bathroom very clean and comfortable with a 'tropical downpour' showerhead! Good 'aircon' heating and cooling and, free wi-fi! Good price for a 2 night stay as well! I'll be back.

Room Tip: The 3rd level south facing room was very quiet.

Clean room , friendly staff and great position.
Very small bathroom and room was dark so needed all lights on during daytime.
Loud music coming from the cross was a bit annoying.
That happened on the Sunday night but not the Monday.
Close to railway station.

Room Tip: Ask for room with natural light

This Hotel is good value for money, great location, train station only minutes away. The room we stayed in was quite compact, but we knew that upfront. Considering, the design was great and every inch of space well allocated. The room was clean and the staff at reception nice. Would stay again.

Room Tip: ask for rooms at the back of the hotel, it is quiet there.

We stayed at the Bayswater Sydney when travelling around Australia. This hotel was a great price for Sydney and in a good central location with excellent connections (train station not even 5 minutes away!). The rooms are very small, standard for cities like Sydney (Paris/London vibe), however compact and everything we needed was present. The building seems quite old and creaky, occasionally you could hear other people. The main tip is you must have ear plugs for sleeping. We arrived on Saturday night and it was extremely loud because the King Corss area is a party area. I was very tired so slept anyway but woke at 4am for the toilet and could still hear screaming and shouting from the street (we were on the 3rd floor towards the back). The rest of the nights the noise was not an issue, I guess Friday and Saturday are the party nights. Also excellent receptionist who offered us a lot of help and there is free internet access in the reception on a computer. Would stay again, just pack those ear plugs.

Reviewed 28 March 2014

Stayed for 3 nights. Considering the costs of hotels in Sydney, this was one of the cheapest, but still not that cheap. I stayed in a standard King. Small room, small bathroom. Great showerhead. No room for toiletries in the bathroom. I tripped over the step from the bedroom to the bathroom, as it has a very high step. Room was clean. No free wi fi. I found the staff friendly and helpful. Good location. Hotel lacks facilities, no bar, no cafe, etc. The cafe next door was fabulous. Had breakfast there every day. Even though I stayed in the same room over the 3 nights, the difference in room rates was incredible. $191 first night, $154 second night, $135 third night.
