Excellent place to stay, location and value for money was great. Customer service was excellent with all staff very willing to help. Rooms are a little on the small side but for people like us who were only using them to sleep and change it was fine. Beds were comfortable. overall it was an excellent place to stay.

The hotel is very well located and just what you need for a break in Sydney. It feels very calm and the building is full of character. Comfy beds, very clean rooms and exceptionally friendly staff made my trip wonderful. Thank you!

We stayed our last 2 nights during our honeymoon in Sydney. The hotel and the rooms are rather small (boutique) but absolutely clean and modern. The service and staff where very friendly! Downstairs is an amazing good and cheap Thai restaurant! Go and try it! Location is good and many things are in walking distance! We would stay there again!

We are a family of 5 so budget is key when we visit Sydney. This was well positioned close to Chinatown, next door to a bottle-o (always a bonus!) and the rooms were just what we needed. When we visit Sydney with the 3 children, we generally don't hang around in our hotel, it is just somewhere to sleep, which...

Had to find last minute accommodation and this place was great. Really efficient and professional check in, room wasn't roomy but super clean and very quiet. There are a tonnes of great, cheap places to eat and transport super close. I was really impressed and will stay again.

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.
