Excellent location, less than 10 min walk to Central Station ( so 10 mins train from the airport) 10 -15 mins to Darling Harbour and abut 40 mins to Circular Quay- if, like us, you prefer seeing your cities above a hole in the ground. We had a very quiet room and did not hear any other guests, it felt...

This is styled as a modern, boutique hotel but the rooms are starting to show their age. Staff are ok, I wouldn't say they are overly friendly. Bed was comfortable and flat screen TV had plenty of channels. Room decor was fine but the bathroom needs updating. Shower was old and water pressure not great. Took a few mins for...

But not particularly close to the centre. Stated to be in Darling Harbour area but a good and hard 20minute walk. Having said that it is a fine hotel with everything you need at a reasonable price. Taxis are easy to come by (uber has had effect) so a good combination.

Good location on the fringe of the cbd meaning most things are 10-15 minutes walk away. A quiet hotel. Free wifi and friendly staff made this a good stay. Rooms have everything you need and are compact. No complaints 🙂
