I came across this hotel for a short and budget 2-night stay. My family and I totally loved it. We were given an ensuite with 1 queen and 1 single sized bed. The room was huge for 3, and toilet was clean. It was comfortable and the staff were extremely friendly. It was definitely worth the price.

Location and price wise, this is a good bet if you're on budget. Breakfast was expectedly not extravagant but it did the work. What I couldn't get over was the bedbug experience. After I sentenced and killed the bug, I did get some good sleep. Overall, location is near the metro and everything seemed walking distance to the main spots...

We found the hotel to be good value for money an din a fairly good location. We were slightly worried that the area would be a bit grotty after reading reviews about it being the red light district however we saw none of that going on during our four night stay here. Kings Cross itself we found to be a...

My husband and I stayed here for a short 1 night stay in November. We found the location convenient for our expeditions in the city. We were lucky enough to get a room with a separated lounge area. Laying in bed with the TV in the partition was nice and relaxing

To be honest this hotel was not my first choice but last minute cancellation from other booking site left me scrambling to find accommodations 3 weeks before my trip (I am not impressed with AirBnB). The room was exactly what the picture showed on their website. We had two adults and two kids in a room with a double bed...

I stayed five nights and attended meetings in the CBD. It was easy to get to and from my meetings via the train, the hotel was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the air conditioner did not work well in the room and I had to ask for the staff to reset it from another location several...

In a city with high priced hotels, this place offers decent rates and is in a great neighborhood - near Kings Cross with lots of transporation and places to eat/drink, and within walking disance of a lot of city sights. Modern building, clean and nicely, if simply, decorated.

We chose this hotel for our two night stay as it's conveniently located to a main station- Kings Cross- and only about 30 mins away from the airport. It is also walking distance to the main attractions and frequent buses run very close to the hotel. The twin room was basic and very clean. It's perfect for those seeking a...

Staying in Darlinghurst

Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
