Reviewed 8 June 2014

I've stayed there for one night in the fourth floor. My room was clean, quiet, and spacious enough for one person, guessing also for a couple. The location is about 10-15 min walk from Darling harbour if you're looking for nice places to dine in. Checking in and out were very fast. Around the hotel are many coffee shops, so if you're into a nice breakfast or just a coffee, you can skip the hotel breakfast. The one thing I did not like was the funny smell in the lobby. Nice for a business stay, I'll come back again.

Excellent location at end of George st , next to a comprehensive transport interchange, room was up to scatch, whilst all staff l dealt with where most helpful - particularly one lady in the restaurant who helped over the card machine, when l had a senior moment, and who remembered me from a prevoius visit.

Stayed here during a Convention. Well appointed and comfortable and, from my point of view, ideally situated right by Central Station - good for travelling into Sydney, and good for travelling out of Sydney to all destinations, including the Olympic Park.
I found that the prices in the hotel were high, particularly the food and wine, but so were the prices in Sydney as a whole - it has become a lot more expensive than when I last visited ten years ago.
The area around the hotel was not, perhaps the most salubrious, but it was convenient.

Close to the Central Railway Station this hotel was conveniently located for training it to Olympic Park for the big Rotary International Convention in Sydney this week. Far from over the top and glitzy it suited my needs perfectly and at a very competitive price on Wotif!! Bouquets to all persons concerned!!

This hotel is well-located right beside the raiway staion in Sydney making it easy to get to from the airport. A taxi reide fro the airport is about AUS$50. It is right at the top of George's Street and Circular Quay is about a 10-25 minute stroll away. The surroundings of the hotel are not so pretty but I think it is safe; the views from one side of the hotel are not so good, looking out onto the side of a largely empty building. Breakfast was excellent and not bad value at AUS$20 when compared to offerings outside; my room was very comfortable and clean with free , good quality wifi included in the room rate and, on the 5th floor, was very quiet. Overall, I have nothing exceptional to say about the hotel either way; it did all I asked of it in a competent way. Shuttle buses are available to the airport at AUS $15.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the back of the hotel.

Work booked this hotel for a business trip to Sydney and I was not disappointed.
We arrived and were very nicely greeted by the staff. Very pleased with our room which had plenty of room and a good sized bathroom.
Breakfast buffet (full) was only $25 and it was really good.
The concierge staff were very helpful with transport and venues.
Would definitely recommend a stay at this hotel

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade at a reasonable cost. Floors 13 and 14 are good
