“Good value and location.”
Reviewed 8 December 2011

Excellent value and location, plus we got an upgrade. Downsides- a little street noise and cigarette smoke. We stayed on level 2, so I'd recommend level 4, the top floor.

The hotel is in a great spot right near Town Hall and we were happy with both of our rooms in every aspect but one. We stayed here prior to taking a cruise departing from Sydney but we will not be able to stay again for our next cruise and have booked elsewhere at the Metro in Pitt Street. Its a shame because the location and price were both right. I dont really understand how it happens but on the two nights that we stayed in this hotel, somehow despite the hotel itself being a non smoking hotel with non smoking rooms I gather, we experienced constant cigarette smoke all night. It was somehow getting into the rooms. My guess, and its only a guess is that because the pub section does not allow smoking inside, people step just outside the pub to smoke. There was a light smoke smell during the day when we saw a few people outside the door smoking but not too bad. However, I think that as the night goes on and the pub underneath fills up, more and more people are standing outside perhaps 10 or so at a time all smoking. This smoke then wafts up the stairwell which is adjacent and leads to the hotel acoomodation or somehow travels throughout the entire building through ductwork or channels that we did not bother to investigate. We just knew that unfortunately we could not stay again in future. I found it difficult to breath. Its a shame as I dont really have anything against smoking as such its just that I get sinus trouble if I am exposed to smoke. Anyway, if you are a smoker or dont mind the smell of smoke then this is a good option for a hotel but if you have sinus trouble then only stay as a last resort.

Room Tip: A higher floor as lower floors can be noisy due to the main road adjacent

I got the name of this hotel off an internet forum and decided to run along with it. The location was really fantastic. It was very easy to get there from the airport via the subway (remember to buy a MyMulti pass for your stay in Sydney). There is a Woolworths right next door with shopping malls, shopping streets, cinemas and many places to eat nearby. It did not really sink in until I went to stay in Bounce Hotel for the last two nights of my stay (wanted to check that place out).

Admittedly the rooms are not of the best standards but for at the price point (AU$109/night) and the location, you really cant expect that much. The restroom/shower area was clean and adequate space-wise. The TV is small and slightly spoilt so unless you are planning to spend a lot of time in the room, that would not be much of an issue. Both of us slept very very well throughout the night even though the hotel was right smack in the city centre.

The staff at the reception was excellent too. They were very helpful when we needed directions to places like Sydney Fish Market.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to travellers who are on a budget and just require a place to have a good night's sleep. If you need to travel to other places, Town Hall station is just one stop away from Central station. All in all, great hotel!

I learnt from the website that this hotel is located upstairs from a bar, I was prepared for the noise and rowdiness during my nights there. Little did I know that it's the quietest bar in town and my partner and I had good sleeps without any disturbance. We spent a good duration of time there. Drinks are very affordable and the bar staffs are friendly.

Getting into the 'ancient' lift was an adventure each time but we took the stairs down which was more convenient.

This hotel is central to Sydney CBD; we even walked to Oxford Street and the Sydney Opera House.

The downside to our room was that the television was quite bad - the power switch was broken and the remote was out of battery. Otherwise, the bed was good and the toilets are clean. Although the rooms are small sized, it was satisfactory for us as we are out and about the whole day.

Hotel Coronation was a great place to stay if you want somewhere in the heart of the city and cheap. The staff were very friendly as well.

We stayed at the Coronation the weekend of the City to Surf and we couldn't have asked for anything better. It was convenient in location. It was convenient with the shops it had surrounding it. And most importantly it was convenient on my purse. It was great to feel comfortable and at the same time be in the middle of the city.

practically everythng could be found at the hotel's doorstep - supermarket (woolworths), train station, fast food, light rail, shopping.
located about halfway between chinatown and circular quay, this hotel's location was perfect for shoppers.
the rooms were clean and well maintained.
reception staff were polite and helpful.
