The Good Things: Hotel staff are great and my room was big (bigger than expected - I think I must have had an upgrade), well decorated and immaculately clean. The ensuite was nice and I had a fridge and kitchenette which actually proved really useful! Either the place has just had a refurb or the cleaners do an amazing job!...

having booked through a conference organiser, and expecting reasonable value, I found out later that I was in fact paying nearly double the standard rate for my room. Room itself did not have an external window, but rather opened on to an internal corridor, which you might expect in a cheap Asian hotel, but not in a medium priced city...

Would recommend especially if you're looking at walking around and seeing some of the sights around town. Very central and cheap food around as well. China town just around the corner and the food courts are nearby too....

This hotel is in a great location, its a easy walk to Darling Harbour, a good walk to circular quay and with lots of shops in between, this hotel is in the middle off Chinatown and there are lots of great restaurants nearby.

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.
