“Good Location, reasonable hotel”
Reviewed 5 April 2010

Stayed 3 nights in a 'Junior 2 bedroom', and given on the 15th floor (always prefer high floors).
The rooms were of reasonable size with very comfortable queen beds in each room; reasonably modern bathroom with spa bath and shower over; laundry facilities in a cupboard off the hall and a huge terrace, albeit shared with the next interconnected room.
Difficult to work out which room was the main one - both had access to the roof terrace, but one had the TV and the other had the CD player. The kitchenette was very minimal, firstly being located in a wardrobe of the bedroom that we decided was the second room for the kids. In addition to the fridge that was otherwise the mini-bar, there was a microwave, kettle and some plates, glasses etc. There was no sink or hotplate - you had to wash the cooking equipment either in the bathroom or the laundry trough.
Did not have many dealings with staff, but they appeared happy to help when asked. (The only issue was we left a note for room service that the CD player was not working...came back at the end of the day to find a note from maintenance advising us to contact reception! Why could maintenance not refer the matter to reception earlier in the day? We were leaving the next day so did not bother).
We were too busy to visit or use the swimming pool etc and did not try the bistro so cannot comment on either.
At least on the 15th floor, room noise was not an issue, although the alarm clock in the next room did bleep for an hour in the middle of the evening - could have reported to reception, but not too noisy.
On the whole, a reasonable standard of hotel in a good central location.

Our dislike of this hotel started at check-in. We were told that due to the fact that we didn't own a credit card that we would have to pay a cash deposit to cover incidentals. Fair enough - happy to pay it. Not happy when despite receiving the cash deposit they still removed all traces of the mini bar from the room. Not a good start.

Two bedroom apartment was smaller than I expected. Not worth the high price that we paid for it.

Customer service was lacklustre to say the least. Made an enquiry about the airport shuttle service and was told that we would have to come back when the shuttle service staff were available. Hotel staff did not provide any information or offer to help in any way. Ended up catching a taxi to the airport.

There was constant noise from traffic, car horns, music and party goers all Saturday night. Not to mention some construction that is going on across the road.

If you are considering staying at this hotel I would suggest that you spend your money elsewhere. You will probably get better value for money, service and a quieter stay.

Great hotel..great service, will use again for sure. Really close, easy walk to everything especially with a small child..Hotel staff and cleaners are really nice,make that extra effort. Kitchen came in handy and saved us money on buying out.Pool and spa on the roof with great views of the bridge and some of the harbour, kids loved it..handy little gym too...

My husband and I travelled with our two young children and his father, and booked a two bedroom apartment. I found that the apartment a bit on the small side, and the shower really tiny. Other than that, I was happy with the kitchenette, and being able to wash our clothes during our five day stay there.

However, if would probably choose an apartment hotel closer to the shopping areas and the restaurants, as the kids get tired with the walk up to the main shopping area, and the free CBD buses stop running at 3.30pm on weekdays (except Thursdays), and 6pm on weekends.

This place is next door to an extremely noisy bar by the name of Establishment. If you have to go to work in the morning - forget this place...you'll be up all night listening to the "boom...boom....boom" of the lous music throught the walls, the horns blaring and people who queue up in the alleyway which borders many of the rooms.

The staff act as if helping you or answering your questions is a kind of burden. Unprofessional is the norm.

I had a refrigerator that stunk like a mouse died in it....

Take your company's or your hard-earned money elsewhere.

We spent a considerable amount of time searching the internet for an apartment to rent in Sydney for one week. We found one we liked on ApartmentPlus.com. When we arrived we were given a different apartment in the same building (Saville Apts. on 2 Bond St.). We were very disappointed in the apartment we were given. There was less furniture and it was older (only a loveseat in the living room to sit on). The pots & pans were very old and linens were very basic - no face cloths, one hand towel and only 1 kitchen towel. There was a big stain on the mattress cover. I was glad to leave the apartment. The only good thing was the location of the apartment. The apartments are individually owned and rented by ApartmentPlus. The hotel probably has better rooms.
