    Great location to Darling Harbour, Barangaroo and Circular Quay. Very functional rooms. There was a share kitchen area which was handy with microwave, ironing facilities, laundry and large dining table, but bring your own crockery and cutlery

    Disgusting filthy hotel! Do not stay here. Blood on floor and beds were old and worn out. No parking and had to park blocks away and walk with all my luggage. The whole experience was shocking to say the least.

    Central Business District
    The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
    energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
    buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
    shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
    frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
    dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
    the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
    reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
