Hi Aileen M, We are so pleased your time with us was so enjoyable! We always love looking after our wonderful guests. Our front lift at the hotel entrance is still part of the original fit out (such a feature from 'yester-year'). Of course we have completed some additional upgrades; it still remains a little slow, but we love it,...

This is a quaint, arty, and right in the CDB, rooms are very small, but have everything you need, and have been made to look spacious. Love the designs, I've stayed many times, great for one or two people. Very vintage, there is a common room kitchen for meeting friends

I was looking for a hotel close to Central station and I found this one by chance. Although the room is very small, I was fortunate to have a bathroom to myself. I found the bed slightly hard but I slept well. The walls are thin and I could hear the people next door laughing at some tv show. Only...

Central with many restaurants within easy walking distance - as on edge of Chinatown there are many Asian restaurants - Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai & Japanese. Also - train & bus systems close by. Easy access to other areas in the city. Also easy access to airport.

If staying in CBD, this is a good hotel. Staff are nice and friendly. It could, however, do with a little upgrade in the rooms. But otherwise, it was fine. Good that reception is available 24/7. Also good that there is a washer/dryer if you need it.

Great location for China town and Darling Harbour. Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Small issues with room but I would return. Room 118 one to avoid, 104 was much nicer in our view. Handy for city bus tour, stop nearby and about 30 min walk to Bridge and Opra hall

Not profoundly happy with our stay. Couldn't accomodate our needs. Air cons wernt working at first, was a 30+ degree day and had babies in our care.,No ice. Threatened with police at time of being asked to quieten down the first and only time we were asked. Rooms were clean although standard and small. Overall an unpleasant stay.

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.
