“Not 5 star but ok stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for one night.
It was the mystery hotel from wotif which I had a fair idea it was this hotel.

I got a twin room.

Bathroom is good - bath and separate shower. Unfortunately not very clean. Maybe a 2-3 star grade. Hair on floor and bath tub. Tiles in shower dirty. Toilet paper is cheap 2 ply - definitely not the typical 5 star sort.

Bedroom is small and decor is dated and clunky. The wardrobe looks out of place or dated, and doesn't utilise the space very well.

Heating /air con not working properly and was freezing most of the night.

Would I stay again?
Only if room fare was heavily discounted. Otherwise I would not stay here as first choice with so many other excellent 5 star hotels in Sydney CBD.

Stayed June 2014, travelled solo

Stayed two nights for business. Room was small, and while modern and mostly functional, wasn't anything special. TV was located in the cabinet at an awkward angle, and the light switches had glitches.

Quality of room service was reasonable, while the buffet breakfast was good.

Overall, reasonable stay, but not what I would've expected for a 5 star property.

Good location handy to offices and Martin Place, plenty of food options too close by. Haven't eaten at the Hotel so cant comment on that however all else is as you would expect a 4.5 star to be. Busy check out in the morning, flight crew and the doorman make the lobby a hive of activity and a great people watching spot with a coffee. Beds are really comfy too.

Stayed for two nights and can highky recommend. Convenient city location great for business or pleasure. Super friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable furnishings and good value for quality room service. Book a room with club access to enjoy breakfast and evening canapes. We will certainly return!

stayed here may this year, wasnt the best place, i wouldnt class it as 5*, staff were very friendly, we were moved to a better room, although didnt see the one we had before, we had a duel aspect room. being in the middle of the city obviously the views arent fab, the room was quite run down and needs a refurb. the bathroom was lovely!! huge stand alone bath, yeh that was nice.all new looking, shame the room wasnt the same. ideal location, no noise at all from the train station underneath the hotel.

This hotel for about $250/ night will provide you with a nice stay, minutes away from Circular Quay in Sydney. The King Deluxe room has a very comfortable bed, the bathroom is really good and well designed. Unfortunately the sign of wearing off are starting to show. The carpets are stained in many places, marks on the furniture....
In the same fashion the gym is in poor condition with half the equipment not working properly, no free weights. Two trade mills and an elliptical machine seems still doing ok. The pool is really nice but a ladder step is currently missing in the hot bath.
We were told renovations were due in a couple of month and that would be good news.
Having said that the staff were really helpful and pleasant. We had an A/C issue and we were given another room for the second night which was pretty much the same but on a higher floor.
The staff made it up for the hotel short coming and if you can get a cheap price why not. The rest of the city is so horribly expensive.

Room Tip: You would prefer a room located on the side of the building and facing the harbour to optimise the v...

Had a business seminar here in June 2014. Conference facilities & food served during the conference can't be faulted. Hotel is in an excellent location also - good proximity to the airport by both taxi & rail (train station is almost directly below the hotel), which is useful for attendees coming from interstate. We also stayed one night at the hotel - lovely room, comfy bed - and had dinner at Char restaurant on site, which was delicious. Not much wrong with this hotel. Staff were also very friendly & helpful.

Room Tip: The higher up the better! I was on 7th floor and had a lovely glimpse of the harbour, but colleagues...
