“Value for money paid”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

The room was adequate, had double bed, wardrobe, drawers, beside cabinet, small dining table and chairs, tv etc... en-suite shower, and kitchenette. Fridge was stocked with milk, juice and breads. Had toaster, kettle, cutlery and crockery. All was clean. The bed was comfortable. The air con was working. We managed to park in the basement parking area - very tight fit but luckily we had a small rental car. It was totally fine for our needs as only wanted a place to put our suitcases during the day and our heads on a pillow at night. Not too hard to get into centre either by bus, train or car as station and bus stops are very close by. The very shiny pink curtains made us laugh... Would recommend if travellers didn't want fancy frills.

Relatively cheap hotel in heart of pack backer territory. Had tiniest room ever, only just fit bed and suitcases, but clean and comfortable. Reception area includes kitchen facilities to make you own cereal and drinks. Be warned Kings Cross, Sydney, is sleazy part of town with hookers, strip joints side by side with bars and back packer hostels. Felt safe but shocked as first experience after twenty four flight.
Easy base.

We booked a family room here for one night as my brother was running in the City to Surf fun run. It is on the route just before the 2km marker and close to Edgecliff train station so easy to get back to the city for the start and return from Bondi. Our room had a separate bedroom with a double bed where my parents slept, a double bunk at the entrance where my son and I slept and a sofa bed my brother slept on. A tv in the bedroom and another in the main room. There was also a round table and 4 chairs. A great bonus is the kitchenette with microwave, fridge, toaster etc and breakfast supplied. There was 3 pieces of bread per person including one raisin toast, 5 assorted mini boxes of cereal, 5 fruit juice bottles, 5 x 300ml fresh milk cartons plus a bowl full of jams/butter and UHT milk/tea/coffee. The road was closed for the race so can't comment on traffic noise as we were only there one night. Lovely park just down the hill on Rushcutters Bay with a marina, playground and cafe and the pub/restaurant next to the Vibe hotel had fabulous dinners (we had beautiful steak, fish and chips and a chicken parmiagani). There is a small carpark underneath but suspect it is first in first served and we didn't need to use it.

The double rooms consist of a bed, lounge, table and chairs and a desk. On a busy main road but traffic noise is not a big problem. Noisy guests could be a problem but not encountered on my visits. About 100 metres downhill from the motel, on the other side of the road is a bus shelter. Frequent bus services from there go past Hyde Park and terminate at Circular Quay. It's 10-20 mins to Circular Quay, dependant on traffic conditions. The Edgecliff Railway Station is 200 metres up the hill. Frequent trains get to Martin Place in 5 minutes and Central Station in 10. Each side of the railway station is a food court and supermarket, where food can be purchased cheaply. The motel rooms have a toaster, kettle and microwave oven, making them a good option for the budget-conscious traveller. Have stayed there twice and will stay again.

I stayed here over the New Year period. I was concerned about the noise from the traffic but I got to my room (first floor, closest to road) and could not hear the traffic. The only sound I could hear was from the other occupants in the hall.

Yes, the rooms are small and basic but this is NOT the Hilton. You should know that before staying here, there are photos on their website of the rooms.

The staff very very friendly and quick to fix things such as the broken hairdryer in my friends room.

The motel has internet for $3 an hour, room key drop off box for after hours departure.

The train station is only 5 minutes walk and bus stop into the city just across the road.

A few doors up is a cute little Italian place called Jerry's Place, the food and gelato is amazing and they do free deliveries over $20.

Aldi and Coles are just up the road too.

The bed was comfy, the water pressure in the shower great as is the air con. The tv is an LCD screen.

This place is cheap and cheerful and very convenient at just 3 kms outside the CBD.

I would definitely stay here again.

Walking in to a rude guy on front desk we went up to our room or shall i call it a box? the door was open as house cleaning must have just cleaned it i am guessing as they were on the floor doing other rooms.... Our room was far from clean As we entered we shut the door to find tissues on the floor followed by someones shoes none of ours dont know how long they have been sitting there either...went to sit at the table and their was blood on the table then sat on bottom bunk and copped a broken spring to the bum ... Very very noisy could hear every guest that was staying there atm.... Would never stay here again for what we paid i have stayed in alot nicer places in sydney (crowne plaza Darling harbour and swiss grand @ bondi) and paid less than i did here very very disappointed ..

We stayed here with 3 young children, found the rooms clean, breakfast was included which was great. Easy to get to from the train station. Would stay there again.
