Sydney's prices are going way too high, and this time of the year is even worse.
This is harder when you are looking for accommodation for 2 children also.
The sofa bed was decidedly uncomfortable, so dont be too fussy. The price was right.
However, we found this modest hotel within a short walk of Central Station.
The free 555 bus that goes around Sydney leaves from the Lee street interchange which is only a 10 minute walk.Great for kids too if you want to show them around town.
It's not easy to find and the address is a tad ambiguous, so you will need a good map if you are coming by train. Make sure you come out of the Station on the Lee street exit, otherwise its a long walk around.
If you are driving,there is parking there, and its an add-on.
The rooms are adequate and tidy and clean for a dated facility.
The new carpet all through helps to spruce it up. The service was excellent and eager to please and the breakfast had moderate selection and enough to get the day going.
Make sure you buy an internet deal including breakfast as this hotel is listed on a number of sites and the special deals abound and vary greatly. Take a copy of your booking and check with reception on arrival that you are getting exactly what you bought.
We must mention the rooftop garden : great place to take the kids for a meal, and a splash in the pool if the weather is OK. There is a nice little bakery/cafe round the corner, but you will need to walk a way to find a supermarket and fast food.
