“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

Was a little dubious being a budget hotel but was pleasantly surprised. Clean spacious room. Bathroom floor could have a good scrub and shower rose needs cleaning but all in all the best budget hotel we have ever selected. Would stay again for an overnight stay definitely.

less than $90 for a twin room or a queen. full motel facilities. spotless. CLEAN. supplied body wash, shampoo and conditioner AND right in the middle of the City. Less than 5minutes walk to Central Station.

Room Tip: doesn't matter. it seems to be sound proof

We arrived in Sydney by train and walked to the hotel. We were then able to walk to Central station to get direct train to the airport. Room small but comfortable. Short walk to the must visit markets and easy walk to C. B. D. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Good restaurants nearby.

I checked the reviews prior to booking but wasn't sure. The staff were very friendly. The family room was pretty large for the five of us and we were rather pleased. Very neat and clean, and value for money. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Sydney.

I visited sydney for a business trip the on 20th July. My travel agent had booked this hotel as this was centrally located. I reached the hotel a bit late and asked the lady at the reception if she can modify my booking as I now have to spend few days in melbourne. The lady at reception (Monica) is the most pathetic receptionist I have seen in life with zero hospitality and sense to talk to customers. That is the biggest turn off. She was very rude and irritating.
I somehow checkedin after some arguments with her and had yo make full payment for 7 days inspite of staying just 2 days. The room was very small with 2 small beds. Everything was chargeable and nothing complimentary.
I would never want to go there again.

Stayed in July for one night, booked a superior king room based on hotels picture of a superior king room. Called hotel day before to seek directions on arrival in Sydney, got the answer machine and no one returned my call. When we arrived at Central Station called hotel and got incorrect directions - which resulted in 30mins delay in reaching hotel. Room description stated "distinct" views ... Pulled back the curtains to reveal a brick wall ... Had to laugh. The room was however relatively quite and bed very clean and comfortable. On check out we requested a taxi be called but was informed that it's easier to hail one from outside, which I think is poor customer service.

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
