This hotel is a really great base for Sydney. It's five minutes from Circular Quay, where you can get on a ferry to Manly or anywhere else in the inner harbour; a train to/from Sydney airport; or a bus to Bondi. It's also across the road from the Botanic Gardens which are lovely and peaceful, with the Opera House at the end of the street. You really are in the middle of it all.
The hotel is boutique like and the service reflects this - the staff work very hard to make sure you feel looked after. They checked us in early and quickly, greeted us each time we left or came back and I got a sense that they genuinely cared that you had a great stay.
In terms of the hotel itself, the public areas are very well appointed, with a wonderful roaring fireplace with lots of papers behind reception and 30mins of free wifi in this area (generally unpublicised).
The room itself was very comfortable with a Juliet balcony facing the street. Despite being street side and close to a motorway, we had no issues with noise at all. In fact, we probably had the best nights' sleep here of our entire stay in Australia. It was also very clean.
It would be five stars apart from that the room was a bit tired looking and a contrast to the lavish public areas.
