“Nice Hotel in A Lively Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

We wanted lively and thats what we got - Loved it.
Spacious and comfortable room, no view, but we did NOT go for the view.
The location was ideal, with nice bars across the road and restaurants just a few metres away.
Metro station in the next street and explorer bus stop immediately outside the station too. We used both to get the the Harbour.
On the Saturday night the street outside the hotel is fenced off due to the volume of clubbers, people watching is a must :-)
DO NOT HIRE A CAR, city parking is extortionate to say the least. Even with hotel discount it cost $25 to park over night, we returned the car the very next day.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the street if you want to sleep, but don't then complain about lack of view...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

At first I was a bit unsure whether the location was safe since it is in Kings Cross area, but since I didn't venture out late at night, the area was actually not as bad as I thought. For the price (SGD$110 via agoda), it's value-for-money for a hotel in Sydney.

The hotel is located just a street away from Kings Cross station, there's a lot of restaurants and cafes too. There's even Coles at the corner of the street for your groceries/snacks. The hop on hop off bus stop is also located near the train station, so it's very convenient if you plan to take it.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.Room was clean, the bed was comfortable (double size). They have complimentary toiletries. Air dryer, electric kettle are also available. The room given to me was on the 5th floor, but the lift is only up to the 4th floor, so you need to take the stairs up... but thankfully since I'm on the top floor, there wasn't much noise from outside.

Free WIFI was also available as part of the hotel voucher I bought in agoda.

All in all, I will definitely recommend this hotel if you're on a budget and will stay again when I revisit Sydney in the future.

Room Tip: If you want less noise, take up the rooms on 4th or 5th, not facing the road.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

This hotel was very clean, had very friendly staff and the middle of a great atmospheric town. We only needed a hotel for 2 days whilst travelling and it fitted the criteria. The staff were very good at giving us a variety of information and had brilliant maps that we used. Lots of facilities such as a gym and internet use. There is parking BUT you do have to pay $25 for 24 hours where it would usually cost over double that. However, I found parking in Sydney generally expensive anyway! We had clicked the 'no room keeping' on booking.com, which we were unaware of. It did not matter for such a short stay, however they were still able to give us fresh towels. I recommend this hotel in the heart of Kings Cross.

Room Tip: We were told the rooms that had a 'building view' were the quietest but we wanted a view so...

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.
