“decent centrally located hotel”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

Average clean rooms. helpful front desk staff. comfy bed. centrally located in kings cross. close to practically everything. lots of cafes in the area which are open till really late. also close to 5 night clubs including 2 just adjacent to the property so the immediate neighbourhood tends to get very noisy on friday and saturday nights till 4 am.

Room Tip: take a room on the higher floors so to stay more away from the noise.get ear muffs, even better.

We booked this hotel two weeks before we traveled to Sydney and it was one of the only hotels available. We paid almost $300 for one Saturday night and this was one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. Online it is advertised as being in Pott's Point, but nowhere does it mention Kings Cross. The staff were friendly and helpful, but aside from that it was terrible. The room was relatively clean but the rest of the hotel was no good - the lift and lobby were scary and ancient.

The worst thing about this hotel was the noise. If they took the time to double glaze the windows then it might have been bearable but the noise is horrible. We did not sleep at all. The staff provided us with ear plugs and were apologetic about the noise.
There was also problems with many of the appliances they provide you with. The air conditioner hummed and rattled most of the night and the iron was covered in burnt bits which made it impossible to use!

If you are booking early, definitely choose another hotel. For the amount of money we paid this hotel was absolutely horrible. Our fault for not booking early!

Stayed one Sunday night here January 2014 and found the experience fairly average. The reception staff were reasonably helpful and polite. The room was quite small considering the hotel is called Lido "Suites" and faced directly onto a brick wall but was adequate for a one night stay. There was some noise from a nightclub next door but didn't go too late on a Sunday and this is afterall King's Cross (Sydney and Australia's largest red-light district/entertainment precinct) and I wasn't really expecting the quiet of the countryside. So, to sum up - on OK place for a night as long as you're not an early to bed sort of person but there are much better places in the price range in the area so maybe shop around a bit.

Cheap and cheerful minus the cheerful. Watch out for the massive attitude on the cleaners!

Staff at counter downstairs helpful and security good. Yes it's has lots of street noise but you are in kings cross.

I won't bother staying again. Plenty of choice out there.

Was stationed at 'Lido Suites' in April this year. Although Kings Cross is known for its notorious reputation for being a bikies haven and a nightclub hotspot, due to police presence I felt very safe in and around the burb. Awesome property but the only downside is the noise. I was on the 3rd floor of the property but the noise was awful - I had a good one night stay and would come back again if only for the noise in the room. Perhaps they ought to install double glazed windows to combat the noise.

Room Tip: Rooms as high as you can to avoid street level noise.

Located in the red light district of Sydney this hotel is exposed to a lot of noise at night. The two nights I stayed there from thursday to saturday the noise were quite "intense". On the other hand if you are in Sydney to party it might be your choice.

The room is basic with a good queen size bed, small kitchen, flat screen TV and a good size Bathroom.

The maintenance level is low which gives the housekeeping a difficult job keeping an acceptable level of the cleaning which leaves the rooms dirty. As an example I found a lot of mold In the bathroom window.

We were not able to use the bed light as this coursed a short circuit and the power outlet got really hot. Coming back from the city the second evening we thought the issue had been taken care of but instead we experienced a second short circuit with sparks coming out of the outlet and a black marks on the outlet.

The staff were kind but did not seem to have the authority to fix the problems.

Now things like this could be expected on a "back packer" discount hotel but the price for two nights were more than 500$. Even without the short circuit incident the value of the service delivered compared to the price is very poor.

Room Tip: Don't book this hotel

My friends and I planned to go to Sydney for a mother's group break and were a bit dismayed to find that the only hotels available in the city were in the Kings Cross. From what has been said about "the Cross" we weren't too happy but we decided to give it a go as it was all we could find. We were pleasantly surprised with Lido Suites. The hotel staff were lovely. They helped us find our way to all the city attractions and suggested places we could go.

The hotel itself is located a few minutes walk from the train station, which made it easy for us to sight see and there is a Woolies close by so we could buy snacks and save on not eating out every night of the trip.

We stayed in a room that had a single bed and a queen bed, while we would've preferred 3 single beds, it was a nice enough room.

The hustle and bustle of the foot traffic was a bit much at times, it seemed there was always a bar or club open, but we expected nothing less due to the Cross' reputation.

All in all, it was a great trip, if a bit eye opening at times.
