“beware of hidden charges !”
Reviewed 2 February 2004

having stayed at the crest hotel in sydney i must say i was very happy ! that was until i recieved my credit card statement ! on checking trasactions i was shocked to find $50 had been taken from my account !
i emailed the hotel to find out the reason for this and there reply was that human sick had been found on the floor and both beds ! now whats the problem with that i hear you say ! nothing if you have left the room an said state ! if you havent well thats where your problems begin ! all i will say to anyone thinking of staying there is when you leave your room make sure the cleaner has inspected it first ! i would hate this to happen to anyone else ! this one problem has really took the shine of what otherwise was an exellent holiday !

Have been staying at the Crest and visiting the Bathhouse ( at least 2 or 3 times a year ) for over 10 years - this speaks for itself ! Love the all over massage, scrub and facial, especially after being bathed in Champagne-like bubbles in the Ginseng Bath. Staff are always friendly and efficient.

Hotel and furnishings seems a little dingy. The carpets seem old, abused and dirty. Wallpapered walls are greyish brown giving a depressing look to room. Hotel service attitude seems neutral. No facilities for kids. Soundproofing poor, especially in room with connecting door.Closeby outside on the street are drug addicts, pushers, ****, pimps, sleaze joints, dodgy-looking fast food shops etc. You need to take the subway (no lift), bus or taxi to reach main tourist locations in the city, or walk for 20 to 60 minutes. Many loud drunks on the streets on Friday and Saturday nights.A disappointment if you are used to international standard good 3 to 5 star hotels - if you are a tourist it's worth upgrading to a better hotel and location. OK if you're on a tight budget, without kids, and a bonus if you like ginseng baths and/or massage, or rough and sleazy bars.
