This was our first visit to Sydney as we have always went to Brisbane, however Sydney is more akin to a larger city like London and we were looking for a reasonable priced hotel. I dont think there is such a thing as a cheap hotel in Oz however we found the hotel basic which we expected.
The hotel has a good but not a great location just of George street towards the bottom. I would say it takes about 20 minutes at least to walk uo to the opera house and maybe a bit more. A very good location to the bars and resturants in the harbour area and right next to China town where all the Chinese resturants are.
The staff were very pleasant and friendly, we arrived at 10am from an early flight from Brisbane and were surprised to get access to our room immediately which was a bonus.
We were room only so cannot comment on the food side however there were deals to advertise breakfast which we didnt bother about as we wanted to get out and about.
Our booking was for three nights and while the room was small and basic, it was clean and well maintained during our stay. The bathroom was also small and no extras except soap/ shampoo dispensers but adequate for what we wanted. There was also a tv in the room if required.
Overall no real complaints about the hotel as it was clean, tidy and comfortable. Only point I would make was there was only one lift that I could see and could take a while to come if you were busy.
Anorther bonus was we took the train from the airport and the hotel was within walking distance from the station.
