“Great location and historic building”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

The location of this hotel is fantastic, in the heart of the CBD. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was small, but clean and updated. The bed was extremely comfortable. It was convenient to have parking available in the parked across the street. The rooms were quiet and made for wonderful sleeps.

Room Tip: You could specify a large room, as the one we had was extremely small. But, we were not in the room...

Stayed here for five days in January. The staff were very helpful and happy to chat, the decor needs some tlc but it does retain the art deco atmosphere reminiscent of when it was built in the 1920s.
Breakfast was good until the last day when eggs and bacon, tomato were too cold to eat but we were refunded .So tell someone if you are not happy and things can happen.

Room Tip: Go for a queen size room

This Hotel is so convenient, arrive At Town Hall Station & quick walk via Park St exit, clean, spacious, cool with A/C on, dark & reasonably quiet considering the busy street below, we were on 8th floor, it was an extremely hot day.
Bar very well furnished, prices reasonable, Level 2 had an area for dining,limited menu, I think due to time of year, however very pleasant choices & food was good. The 2 ladies seemed aloof, it wasn't busy & I guessthey are not there to entertain but could have been a bit more forthcoming with any info or asked questions as to what were we intending on doing etc to give any hints advice etc.
This area of Sydney is opposite end of the Quay but very near China Town, QVB,Hyde Park, great walks etc

Room Tip: Eigth floor was high enough for low noise impact

There is a big difference in the rooms here. Last time I stayed I had a much bigger room and obviously liked it much better. However,if you can look past a poky room and perhaps not the the most luxurious bed, then this is still s very good place. The main strength of this place is the value for money. You pay about a third less here as what you pay for a four star in a similar location. The place has history, charm and attentive service. Its cool and calm. Its pretty much a walk to anywhere in the city or not far from a train or a bus. If you get a little room I would only rate this place 3 stars but a larger room with the old opening windows is a gem. Pretty sure I got the bad room cause I went through "hotwire".

Room Tip: Try and get a larger room facing the street high up.

As other reviewers have said, the hotel public rooms are fine and had some character. The location is great and staff were helpful. What else before I get to the point? Oh yes, free wifi throughout the building - a lot better than most places we stayed in Australia.

BUT our bedrooms were very small, shabby and uncomfortable. I would not go back.

Room Tip: Don't go to the Castlereagh!

Superb old building in convenient CBD of Sydney, walking distance easy to Town Hall Station.
Staff very helpful, beautiful yet simple buffet breakfast, quiet atmosphere in the exquisite dining room. Our twin room however was in need up an update, no view from frosted window, tiny but clean adequate en suite but toilet would not flush on 2nd day. We repaired it ourselves. Tile step into ensuite a bit dangerous if you forgot. Comfy bed and quiet so for 2 nights a cheap place to sleep. Would stay again due to cheap price and position to walk to everything in central Sydney.
Would come up in rating with a make over of the bedrooms.

Room Tip: If they have rooms with a view would choose that, 7th floor was however quiet and we were right on t...
