I’m use to staying in low price accommodation so rate to what I would expect - but this place wins as my lowest review ever. The only positive was the location in the heart of the city...then it goes downhill. Stairs, yes there are lots...More

This is a hotel in a great location. 15 minute walk from the Circular quay and Darling harbour, which have plenty of restaurants and bars. Hotel itself is clean and tidy and the rooms are ideal for sleeping in. The staff are very polite and...More

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
