While being located in a grittier part of town I didnt have a feeling of being unsafe. The staff were really quit well versed in the local 'to do' sights. Very centerally located to the CBD and two train stations. I would stay here again anytime I am in Sydney

I disliked this hotel as soon as I stepped into it. The hotel very old, dimly lit hallways that were painted in dark gray and the dampness smell was uncomfortable. The carpets are really worn out and the front desk is not on the ground floor. I had planned to quickly check and head out to see the sights and...

We stayed one night to attend a concert at the entertainment centre room although the quite small was more than adequate. Bed was very comfortable. Also handy to Central railway and China town. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. We would stay there again. We had a room at the back away from potential street noise.shower. Shower was quite big.

Third stay at this hotel and every bit as good as before. Our room was large, quiet and had very good dark curtains. The aircon worked well and the walk in shower with monsoon head was a real treat! We will be back!

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.
