“Great place at a low price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2006

Hotel Coronation is in a great location (30 seconds walk from the Town Hall, Town Hall station, the QVB and Pitt St).

We spent 5 nights here over New Years and thoroughly recommend it. We chose this hotel as it was in a great location and one of the few places that wasn't charging silly prices over New Years. It charged about $30AUD per night extra for 2 nights. Most places were doubling their prices.

It's regular rates ($109AUD) are one of the best around in central Sydney for an ensuite room with aircon (which we needed on 1st Jan - 44 degrees!!). The room we had was fairly small, but this was because we had one of only 2 rooms with a balcony (rooms 402 and 403), which 'eat' into the room, but we were more than happy to compensate that for a balcony overlooking a bustling street. Despite being in a busy area we found the room very quiet (which was good to sleep off the jet lag) and the hotel in general was quiet - there are 21 rooms - and we only once or twice bumped into someone. The beds was really comfy and the ensuite was clean and decent sized.

The Coronation also has:
- a nice 24 hour bar
- a bottle shop (handy for a few drinks in your room/balcony, as each room has a fridge).
- a restaurant - cheapish prices for a place where you can get anything from oysters and champagne to beer and a burger.

Most reviews are generally based on 'value for money' and mine's no different. It's not a world class hotel but for it's price I can't say a bad word against it. It's a great lowish budget 'classic' hotel but with all the trimmings (aircon, ensuite, tv, fridge, restaurant, bar) in a great area of the city.

Good things: great location downtown with a supermarket, train station and 24 hour bar right next door(nighttime doorman at the bar very nice); in the heart of the city: George Street; only about a 15-20 minute walk to Darling Harbor and the Rocks; I paid only $109AU which aint too bad!
Bad things: the lobby is essentially a hallway from the street; the front desk is only open during the day so if you have problems at night you have to contact the downstairs bar manager; no views; not a lot of ammenties; carpeting is kinda shabby; shower water temp fluctuates a little.

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times, some rooms are small but clean and for the price it is right in the middle of town eg town hall, it has a 24 hour bar and the Restaurant does put on a good feed!
