“Good Value for Location”
Reviewed 24 April 2008

We recently stayed here for one night. The lobby was a surprise, it couldn't have been smaller. However the room was comfortable although small. The price is right and the location is great, walking distanced to the Opera House, etc. Good value for the money. The elevator us unique - haven't seen one of those in a long time.

I stayed here for New Years Eve 2007/8 and although the room was quite small we had a great time. It was a fantastic location, about a 5 minute walk from Darling Harbour and just across the road from Town Hal Station. I stayed here with three other girlfriends in the same room (something I recommend not doing, as I said the rooms are quite small). The pub downstairs was full of friendly people and most of the staff were great. However when we checked in we were given a bit of attitude by the check in girl. The hotel is great if you enjoy the hustle and bustle, the pub is after all a 24hr place so I wouldnt come expecting it to be quiet. Police sirens were a regular thing throughout the night but hey, thats Sydney. All in all we had a great time and I would definately come back, but just a tip, limit it to 2 people per room.

I booked hotel coronation very early on in the year but was dreading getting there after reading a couple of unsatisfactory reviews on this site before I headed off to Oz. I have to say that I found this hotel to be absolutely brilliant - great location, friendly staff, clean room which was serviced on a daily basis and with all the facilities in the room which we needed. The room we had was on the fourth floor (room 402 with a balcony - much recommended!) and although a little noisy, it was not as bad as I had imagined it would be with a 24 hour bar downstairs. If you are a very light sleeper, ear plugs would do the trick. Great budget hotel in a fantastic location opposite Town Hall station.

The location is fantastic, walking distance to Darling Harbour, for the price the rooms are good with clean facilities. It's a great place to stay if you want to shop, with the Queen Victoria Building just down the road and you can drop your shopping off and go again. It's close the the movies and lots of restaurants. You can even stroll down to the harbour. As for the lift I use the stairs anyway as it is only a four storey hotel.

I called the hotel reception on 12/Dec/06 and booked two rooms for five nights to work at a trade show in Sydney. We stayed here before, although not impressed by the hotel itself, it's location is great. But when we arrived, the staff told us we didn't book! I gave her the booking details, she said she didn't know and I can talk to the manager. The manager who also runs the bar next door, came over and said: as far as he is concerned, we could be just anyone from the street asking for accommodation. Not only that they don't honour our bookings, he also shouted and humiliated us! He is by far the worst person I've ever come across.

I've travelled to many parts of the world, this is the worst experience ever.

Just back from 5 days in Sydney staying in Hotel Cornation. Our room was comfortable,clean, & we didnt have any of the problems that the other reviews have mentioned.
But we did have a problem on our first night with council workers who decided to start with a jack hammer at 9.00 at night,by 10.00 it was still going on, i tried to contact manager on the number given in hotel information no luck so i phoned down to the bar & spoke with staff on duty who very pleasant , helpful & who said they would try to find out what was happening.
Anyway to cut a long story short they managed to get it stopped at 12.00.
Next morning we asked to see the manager. He was friendly, helpful. While we there he phoned the local council to find out what was happening, he said the hotel had never been told of the work which was being done outside but he would try & find out & ask for work not to be done at unsociable hours.
We asked to be moved into another room just incase the work was to continue.So we packed up our case & they moved us into a room at the back of the hotel for the rest of our stay.
For a budget hotel in such a central location we thought it was ideal.

I stayed in Hotel Coronation during my honeymoon in Oct/Nov & was surprised to find the hotel in a fairly bad state (contrary to earlier rave reviews of the place). The hotel doesn't have a proper modern lift, but those old cranky manual ones that comes with a gate & a door. The lift can get quite difficult to manoveur when you have loads of luggage to carry. One of my greatest complaints has gotta be the bed. It's terribly soft & small (though it was of queen-sized). I had aches & pains everyday during my 4 nights' stay at the hotel.
The receptionists (I think there are at least 3-4 on them, working on shifts) aren't a particularly helpful bunch. They couldn't provide information when requested & were not even familiar with information on the hotel itself.
Finally, on the good side, the bathrooms were fairly new & clean (which was a comfort). Location of the hotel was also superb, easy to get around Sydney CBD & there's a supermarket right beside the facility.
