Very conveniently located we arrived in Sydney by train at Central Station short walk to hotel, with very helpful and pleasant staff but rooms are quite dated and housekeeping did not clean to a high standard along with noisy corridors.

Great location - close to restaurants, walking distance to Central Station, service very good, room is quite roomy and tidy only bathrooms need a bit of a tidy up (the grouting just needs to be redone), good value, definitely stay there again.

We really had a great stay. Our apartment was very spacious with 2 bedrooms and very well appointed with cooktop, oven, microwave, clothes washer and dryer. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The hotel is handy to buses and light rail while parking just across the road in the Capitol carpark was easy to access. Plenty of pubs and restaurants... More

noted in booking we had a disabled guest & calling to confirm, no one at time of call advised these particular rooms were not accessible. Late check out & a bottle of wine does not help access a bathroom. Balcony was filthy

This hotel is right in the centre of Sydney's China town. Very busy! Currently the road outside is being dug up. First impressions therefore were a bit negative. However, we soon saw past the roadworks and soon grew to love the hustle and bustle of the area. The room was big and the kitchen and lounge areas really comfortable and... More

Wonderful central location, functional enough room but very shabby. Cleaning standard unsatisfactory. Halls smelt dreadful due to filthy carpet and stale oil. Prior visitors hair all over bathrooms, Awkward little rooms that were in desperate need of need renovations or even a lick of paint and decent clean.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
