I stayed at the Hotel 59 in July, George and Cathy were such wonderful hosts. They were very helpful during my stay. The hotel is small, but super clean and excellent value for money. Location, was awesome, super close to the Kings Cross station, restos, shops and bars. I will definitely come back!

George was a tremendous help with finding good activities to do. He gave me a map upon checkin and it was a great help. The room was clean, it had a fridge (no microwave or stove) and the bathroom was very modern. The space in Room 2 was massive but the lighting could have been brighter. Definitely, a good amount...

Stayed here Dec 2015. Excellent value centrally located, outstanding breakfasts. George, his sister and father could not have been any nicer or more accommodating. Would be the first place I'd try to book if I ever go back to Sydney..
