“great location”
Reviewed 1 September 2007

This hotel is comfortable and in the perfect position to see Sydney! The pool is lovely but small. Breakfast was great too. The local market is set up just outside the door at weekends so it might be worth asking for a quiet room!

This hotel is located in the perfect place for a short stay in Sydney. It is in easy reach of all of the main attractions, with circular quay approx 5 mins walk away. The Rocks market, on a Sunday is literally within stumbling distance. The rooms are clean and simple and make an excellent base for exploring the city. We didn't eat or drink in the hotel so can't comment on the price/quality. All in all, a great hotel with a fantastic location.

This hotel is in a fantastic location ideally placed for Bridge, Opera House and Central Quay. The hotel staff responded superbly to any request I made and did everything they could to make the stay easy. Breakfast at the hotel was good value and the quality of the food was very good.

The front of the hotel can be quite noisy, however, the rooms at the back of the hotel were really quiet. Room size is more than adequate and the beds were also quite large. I will hopefully stay at this hotel again.

Really pleased with this hotel. Great location. Room and bathroom decent sizes and very clean.
Staff were really helpful and polite.
Pool (although not overly big) and spa were great too.
Also liked the lovely big lobby to sit and have a glass of wine!
would definitely visit again.

Best place to stay at when in Sydney. Close to everything as it is in The Rocks area - walking to Circular Quay, Sydney Opera House, CBD, bridge, Darling Harbor. Only drawback were the elevators, of which at least one was out of order almost everyday. Will stay there again if we ever get back to Sydney.

The incredible location makes up for the less incredible though adequate rooms with a great bed. Lobby very nice and staff very friendly helpful and accomodating. Would definitely stay there again.

A pretty standard hotel but in a good location in the Rocks area close to restaurants and just a 5-10 minute walk to Circular Quay where the city's rail and ferry network can be accessed.

The standard rooms are clean and bathrooms ok if a little small.

The hotel has wifi and cable internet access but at over $27 a day is on the expensive side. I stayed for 10 days and tried to negotiate a better rate for the internet but nothing doing which is disappointing.

The food in the hotel is good but then the food in this city is of a high standard so no suprises there. Breakfast is buffet style and of a good quality.

Book ahead to get cheap rates and this is a good option for a mid range hotel in this great city.
