I stayed at this hotel near the Central railway , getting prepared for my P&O trip to Noumea.
A good bus service to many destinations almost outside the front door; I went to Warringah Mall to meet up with a old friend'the return trip was OK too.
It is located close to the rail service going past the markets and I got off at Star City casino for a look only, on the return trip I got off at Paddy's market to find my evening meal upstairs and a short walk back to the hotel.

This was our base to explore Sydney for 6 nights. It was very conveniently situated near to Paddy`s Market and Central Station ( a stop for the Sydney Explorer and Bondi Explorer Bus ). The hotel was rather old-fashioned and the rooms rather small, however staff were friendly and helpful. We were able to purchase vouchers for breakfast ( hot or continental) which was fine. The Hotel was approx 30 mins walk from Central Quay/ Opera House/ Harbour Bridge/ Darling Harbour. We just loved Sydney and the Hotel provided an affordable convenient base for our stay. Our legs/ feet were aching after 7 days!!

Room Tip: Rooms to rear have less traffic noise.

Main advantages were that the hotel was close to Central Station and Paddy's Market. We got a special price via Entertainment Card - $67. It would be hard to find Queen room for cheaper in Sydney CBD. However the room was very small, called "heritage" but this meant out of date 70's wooden wardrobe, desk, bedside tables, and small flatscreen TV. Window faced straight out to windows of other rooms so couldn't have curtain open. Also the air-con was really noisy and just blew cold air at us when set at 20 degrees or higher, but if turned off the room grew too hot. This made it bit uncomfortable at night. Was billed as 4 star but I would have called it 2.5 to 3 star.

Room Tip: Ask for a non heritage room
