Third stay at this hotel and every bit as good as before. Our room was large, quiet and had very good dark curtains. The aircon worked well and the walk in shower with monsoon head was a real treat! We will be back!

We had an excellent one night stay. Some notes: - Many of the rooms are not wheelchair (read: pram) accessible (in fact there are a couple stairs just to get to the lift from the street). Luckily my husband is okay with lifting our pram up a few stairs. If you can lift your pram, no worries. - The $30...

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.
