    Everything was great, however my mother’s room got changed to downstairs even though I booked 9 months in advance. Plus the sink in her bathroom was leaking everywhere and they wouldn’t fix it so she had to use ours so she didn’t slip over.

    My room had a balcony facing the street and was a good size, so I was happy. A colleague of mine said that the bathroom (no balcony room) was quite small? Only other thing I would like to point out is parking... can be difficult...More

    As I paid in advance for the room, I was told there would be no hold on my card but when checking out found that there was even though staff said there was not. Reception staff very unfriendly, not interested in guest experience or concerns

    Hotel Challis is perfectly located for easy access to the CBD and is surprisingly quiet. I have stayed several times when in Sydney on business and find the hotel meets all of my requirements. Also has so many great options for dining within easy walking...More

    I think that the beds should have mattress protectors of some sort, unhygienic otherwise New towels are NOT needed every day, if the guest hangs them up More hooks for towels needed in bathrooms Need to advise guests they have to pay on arrival !

    Hi - its on a small urban urban street and there is NO street parking. There is parking buildings in the area and from memory they have the info on the hotel website. Its a cute hotel and great value for money.
