“good place to stay when in the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Stayed at Springfield Lodge for 2 nights over the weekend while attending Show & Jazz Concert in the city.
Springfield Lodge is one of the lovely old mansions from the "Upstairs Downstairs" era of Earls Court, affording a pleasing impression on approach.
It is centrally located, close to the Kings Cross Station, only a "hop" to the Town Hall.
Staff was friendly, courteous and helpful.
The room was small but clean and comfortable with a bar fridge and tea/coffee facilities, A/C, TV.
The views were none as it faced the surrounding walls, however that was of no consequence because I only returned back to the room late at night.
There is a kitchen in the basement for the patrons' use. A great bonus to save on dining outside 24/7. An inviting restaurant downstairs as well.
It is a very good value, considering one is right in the city.

Room Tip: maybe ask for a room which does not face the inner "courtyard" and 4 grey walls...that'...

stayed in king room at the 2 floor. nice simple room, hard but comfort bed, tiny bathroom - the sink is very close to the toilet seat. shower is great - good stream with hot shower. Marousa the nice lady that work at the reception, was very helpful and help us plan our 2 days trip in town. kings cross area is great for pubs and good cheap restaurants.

I just spent four nights in Springfield Lodge and had a fantastic stay there. The highlight was the friendlyness of all staff members: from housekeeping to reception. The manager was so happy to help with printing and other needs we had. Definitely recommended.

We stayed for 5 nights in the Springfield Lodge, it was clean and very handy to King's Cross Station, the rooms were very small, and so was the bathroom, maybe it would be better to have a single room rather than a twin as there was nowhere to put your case except the wardrobe, then there wasn't anywhere to hang your clothes, there weren't any drawers. We had to get our cases out each morning to find our things to wear. The staff were very helpful, and it was close to Darlinghurst Road where all the shops and pubs are. It's a budget hotel, so there wasn't anywhere for our group of 41 people to meet up and discuss our day, it would have been nice to have a lounge area to do this. Our room, which was 115 didn't have any clothes hangers when we arrived, but the receptionist was able to get us some, but of course we realized we couldn't use them to hang anything because our cases were in the wardrobe.

We stayed here two separate times on our holiday. The first two nights and our last night. We took a shuttle to and from the airport which the hotel provides for a decent fee. Our first room was small and the bathroom a little cramped but sufficient. We are not fancy needs people. Unfortunately our windows faced walls and other parts of the building, so no kind of view. Our second stay was better. Surprisingly enough, we got the room right next door to our last, but it was an end room and our window faced the street in front of the hotel which we thought was nicer and the room a little bigger. Being in Kings Cross, the hotel is only one street up from the McElhone stairs which take you down to the naval base and a few other cool sights or one street down from the strip. A little skeevy at night but still seemed safe enough to walk around. The staff is very friendly. The beds were good enough. It was clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Im sorry I can’t remember the room number that faced the street but it was right at the top of the s...

we stayed here for 2 nights and found it ok for us. we are taking the airport shuttle to the hotel directly and in fact they did provide the shuttle service in the hotel at cheaper rate, unfortunately we have purchase return bus ticket from the airport already. the hotel staff is very friendly, we reach the hotel around 12pm and the room is ready for check in. it is a small tiny clean room, and that's all we need for a short stay too. the hotel location is very close to kings cross station with restaurant and convenient shop around. the drawback is the basement room window is facing backlane with rubbish bin, not smelly but isn't pleasant to view it, so we only open a small gap to let the wind flow in. the sound proof also not that good and you can hear the laundry or worker sounds early in the morning. overall, we are ok with the stay here.

I stayed for seven nights last month (April 2014). The room was on the top floor, had a very comfortable and large bed, a small bathroom which worked well and great friendly service from the reception staff. Parking is close by in Kings Cross station car park if you hire a car, and you can purchase a heavily discounted parking ticket from the hotel.

The only thing I would not recommend is the Petrol restaurant attached to the hotel. Not part of the hotel but seems to get a lot of its custom from there. Expensive, and bad service spoiled the quality of the food. It seemed the norm for the one time I ate there for clients from the hotel to eat there, once. I then had great joy in walking past it to eat at Panhandlers restaurant across the road.
If I get back to Sydney (I hope) I will definitely book the hotel again.

Room Tip: Hopt floor rooms have a good view across to the bridge, and was very quiet.
