“quiet clean and pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We had 3 nights at the leisure inn a stones throw from central station for trains and buses. Very clean. Recently refurbished I think so all nice and new.
it is only a small hotel no eating facilities at the hotel.
staff very helpful

Room Tip: Windows are double glazed so noise is not a problem

We stayed here because Air NZ had a great deal on their website for three nights accommodation, plus it is right in Central Sydney. Due to the price and previous reviews on here, I must say our expectations were not high, except that we would have a clean, safe room in which to rest our heads. So from this perspective, they passed with flying colours. It is definitely basic (no kitchenette facilities apart from a jug and cups in our room), but a decent size, and everything functioned. We had no street noise whatsoever, the only disruption came from the hallway-you can definitely hear others in the corridor as they come and go from their rooms, but other than that, we were not disturbed. The location was great, and on our third day we discovered there were some great cafés in the nearby suburb of Surry Hills (The Book Kitchen is worth the approx 20 min walk). Plus there are loads of affordable eateries nearby, especially if you like rough and ready Vietnamese etc. Central Station is just a short walk, from which you can catch trains to/from the city and airport. The Opera House etc is walkable-about an hour if you take your time. I agree with others; if you don't expect anything more than what you are paying for, you will not be disappointed!

While this hotel is centrally located and close to the Central train station, there is little else positive I can say.
The building is not well maintained, and the staff seem overworked. The little things are missing.
For example I did not have enough hangers in my room for my week stay. I asked for a couple more. They said they would "look into it" but couldn't guarantee anything. (How can this be an issue? you have to wonder). I asked 2 more times, getting increasingly annoyed, before I actually got a few hangers. Such a simple request - but they take made a very bad impression by making me come back and virtually beg.
My alarm clock did not work the first day so I asked for a wake-up call at 6:30 AM. Instead I got a call at 5:30 AM! Again, such a small mistake, but huge impact on customer perception. The phone is situated on the other side of the room and can't be moved. So you actually have to get up to take the unwelcome call.

I complained about the unwanted early phone call, but they did it again the second day!
I am not totally through the week, but I am unhappy enough with this hotel that I can definitely say I would never stay here again.

Purely functional, a very well located zero fills place to sleep. Do not expect anything more and you will not be disappointed. Recommended max price for booking would be $125.
Positives: location. Friendly staff. Clean.
Negative: bare bones.

It was a transit hotel for us and we spent pretty much only few hours there, so I can’t really say many things about this hotel. The hotel is small but it is located just few blocks away from the central station which is good for travelers who want to explore the Sydney CBD. The room is also small but it has all the standards of a hotel, such as working/study desk, Tv, coffee and tea making facilities, mini bar fridge, and bath amenities. It is a newly refurbished property, so about the cleanliness and the furniture performance, I would say they met my expectation.

So generally, with the price we paid, we all were happy about it. However, in my opinion, the hotel is suitable more for young travelers or for those who just need a quick transit.

Quiet location, convenience store next door, transport close by, Haymarket Shopping Centre and Paddys Market all in walking distance, China Town also very close - easy walk. Booking in was easy. Room was excellent - slept seven people. Beds comfy and room clean. Would totally recommend to anyone.

I was very impressed with the accommodation. It was quiet and clean. Just perfect for an overnight stay in the City. I will stay here again next time I have a night out in Sydney. It was much cleaner and better value than other cheap hotels I have stayed in in Sydney.
