“Dont waste your money”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Had an overnight stay on 16th November, Hotel was Ok but kept awake all night by roadworks...drilling and jackhammering until 5am in the morning. Offered free parking and told to fill out a formal complaint to Roads & Traffic....not good enough, motel should not have booked rooms so near noise.

After having spent 2 weeks in a camper van, we found ourselves flapping around in this mini-suite. Bed comfortable, plenty of hanging space, excellent bathroom. The living area also had cooking facilities, fridge and sink for those wishing to self-cater.
Reception staffed by very helpful people.
Location in the business district meant that there was a short walk to find a range of restaurants at the weekend. Weekdays, there were plenty of cafes and eateries catering to the workers in the nearby offices.
Short walk to a main thoroughfare with plenty of buses, also to the nearest underground station.
The one downside was the APPALLING standard of internet connection. For which one had to pay! We complained (via the helpful reception) and our money was refunded.
Would use this again for convenience and good standard of provision

I stayed here with a friend visiting from interstate, we really just needed somewhere to crash nothing super flash or expensive. But the hotel is clean, modern, we had a large bedrooms lounge bed and mini kitchen. I had a comfortable stay and was pleasantly surprised. Only down side.... Barangaroo construction is loud in the morning and the overhead express way noise. Perfect if you need to be up and at em early. Not ideal if you wanna sleep in.

We were pleasantly surprised by how spacious the apartment was. We had a studio, downstairs, it was a very good lay out, with bed, kitchen, separate dining table and chair, desk and lounge with good sized TV. We had a cheap deal from living social so we weren't surprised to be in the basement floor. Wasn't too noisy but you could hear and see people going past in the street, so you tended to have the curtains closed. Bed was firm and comfortable. Extremely large shower with fantastic water pressure and huge nice white towels. Small vanity but overall bathroom size was good. It is self catering so servicing only happens on the 4th day if you are staying 7. The hotel is in the uptown reasonably close to Wynyard station about 250m. Lots of cafés close by Mon- Fri but not so many open on weekends as this is a business district. King st wharf isn't too far away and the main city centre just a couple of blocks up the hill.

Wife and I stayed 3 nights in a very pleasant and comfortable studio apartment.
The place did not seem dated at all but seemed very modern, comfortable, clean and well managed and secure 24 hours.

The bed was comfy and firm and we had access to a small balcony which we did not use.
The area around the hotel is undergoing major changes to accommodate the new Barangaroo development which is almost next door to the hotel. There was some road works noise going on but nothing to seriously affect our stay or sleep.

On the negative side was the extremely difficult to slide balcony door and the huge towels.

Room Tip: ask for a room above street level

We stayed at this place from 17-23rd July,and while it was clean,it was not worth the money.
The room we had 404 had a balcony but it would have been impossible to sit out on it as it was under the on-ramp for the Sydney harbour approach road,and the smell of fuel was overpowering.
The décor was a bit jaded and paint was coming off the walls.
The soft furniture was stained with what I hope was water,but who knows what it was really??
The crockery was incomplete with nothing matching.
The accommodation had laundry facilities,but to do ONE washing would have cost $4 for the machine and $2 for the drying facilities
There was no proper rubbish disposal facilities,as there was a sign stating DO NOT PUT ANYTHING down the chute as it would jam.
I would not recommend this place to any one.
It is certainly handy for transport with train station very close ,
There were major road works which started at 7am,but the hotel obviously had no control over these,although they DID NOT tell us that these would be happening during our stay.

Room Tip: not room 404

spent 14 days here. Walking distance to The Rocks district, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. Had a 1 bedroom apartment with cooking facilities dining table and chairs and also a sofa bed. Had a balcony but not much views to look at. We spent most of our time out sightseeing during the day coming back to the apartment to cook tea and then headed out for a bit of night sight seeing. In the foyer there was a drinks and nibbles vending machine and also there was use of a washing machine and dryer in the basement accessed by a lift. The apartment was clean neat and tidy and was a great base for sightseeing. I would definitely stay here again.
