Reviewed 29 April 2010

Sydney University Village 90 Carillon Avenue, Newtown, Sydney, Australia

My wife and 13 month old child stayed here the first week of Feb 2010. We stayed here for 3 nights at a rate of 105 Australian per night (taxes in). Check in was at 2pm so we arrived a bit early and the staff there allowed us to leave our bags as we walked around the neighborhood.

Rooms
The rooms are very very basic with a bathroom, bed, ceiling fan, desk, chair, phone and fridge. The bathroom has a shower (no tub) sink and toilet. The shower pressure is fine. They provide shampoo and soap along with towels.

The bed was fine but a room with no a/c especially during the summer was bearable with the ceiling fan. The bed was small – a double, with minimal bedding.

The room had plates, bowls, cups and some cutlery.

No TV and thankfully we had a laptop to enjoy some shows on. Also, no free internet so you will have to pay. Hoochie Mamas which is a café and close by has free wi fi next door to a laundry facility

When using the phones, you need to first punch in a bunch of codes which is a bit of a hassle but what can you do?

Maids were a bit too prompt to clean rooms. The day we were checking out (check out is at 10am) they were trying to clean the rooms by 9am. It would be helpful if there were DO NOT DISTURB signs to put on the doors which we did not have. One more thing, corner rooms are definitely better in that there are extra windows in the bedroom and a window in the bathroom (which usually do not have any) which helps because there are no fans.

Surrounding area:
We were able to enjoy a number of restaurants close to the campus. There are literally 15 Thai restaurants on King street which is just up the road so if you enjoy Thai food, you will have your selection. We ate at a nice Japanese restaurant, Vietnamese restaurant and a restaurant called Urban Bites – we had a really yummy pasta there in the mid afternoon it was a “before dinner special.”

The day we left were able to get a late check out at 11:30 am which was a real blessing as normally it’s at 10 am.

We ended up asking a taxi to pick us up and take us to the airport. It ended up costing us just over 30 Australian for that.
