great location and low price, the mattress was more comfortable than that of my own house. Will definitely recommend to my family and friends. Also the classic ambiance of the hotel is very enjoyable.

Great little boutique hotel on George St close to Darling Harbour, Chinatown, Central Station, cinemas. The rooms are very small, but comfortable and clean and if you're in the middle of Sydney you don't want to be in your hotel room anyway. Staff are helpful, polite and efficient. Good value for money.

Hotel is in an old building which has been refurbished but not very recently and not to a very high standard -- some of the room facilities were a bit average and not up to expectations. List was very small and lacked ventilation making it a mini-sauna during a Sydney heatwave.

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.
