Reviewed 27 July 2016

I stayed at this place with my son for 2 nights. Our room was on the ground floor opposite reception. As mentioned by other visitors this establishment is on the corner of a busy intersection that makes it noisy especially if you are on the lower levels. However, that did not bother us at all as we were so exhausted after busy days of exploring and slept perfectly fine. Beds were comfortable. Instead of twin beds as requested we got a double bed and bunk beds so that was perfect. Flat TV with lots of channels including ABCkids was a big plus. Everything was clean. Staff was very friendly and let us leave the luggage in a store room for a few hours on the day of our departure. If we are going to Sydney ever again I would definitely consider this place.

Room Tip: Less noisy rooms on the top levels but have to walk up the stairs.

Perfectly alright if all you want is a bed & shower within a 5 minute walk of Darling Harbour for about $140 a night.

Clean, economical, spare blankets, electric heater & aircon (didn't use or try). Double bed & bunkbed, fridge, kettle, tea & coffee, large TV, own key to front door, laundry & iron available, storage of luggage (@ own risk) after check out. Free Wifi. Inexpensive breakfasts available.

No storage space for clothing, no shelving or storage space in bathroom, no soap holder in shower, toilet seat unsecured,

** not all room &/or front door keys work -ESSENTIAL you CHECK them ON ARRIVAL as there is a $50 call out fee for any 'non emergency' assistance after 10pm !!

Note to All Smokers:

Apart from the courtyard, this is a strictly non smoking hotel.
You could well be fined for a brigade response to a smoke alarm!!

Stayed here for 3 nights pre cruise. We were here a few years ago, so decided to book again. Location is brilliant, price was right.
We had an ensuite room that backed onto the main road, that was the first mistake. The room was good, bed was comfy, besides finding an empty lube container under the bed which was a bit gross.

However the noise from the road, people going by, cars stopping at the traffic lights, was ongoing until the wee hours of the morning, which made sleep quality very poor.
I don't know if the other rooms had this problem, but we will probably go elsewhere next time we're in Sydney. It's a shame though as the location & price are perfect.

We ended up staying there for 2 nights. Originally we had booked for 4 nights, but had to change the plans. We changed it about a week or 2 before we were meant to check-in and received a full refund. Customer Service was good, we checked in with no issues. Keep in mind, they do not help with luggage. We were on the top floor and carrying around our 6 weeks stay worth of luggage. Bed wasn't very comfortable and we had no air condition. However, the washrooms were very clean and I never had to wait in line, even though it appeared that the hotel was quite full. The location of the hotel is fantastic. We walked almost everywhere, even to the Rocks. So all in all, a good stay, but if I go back to Sydney, I think I would try and find another hotel. Especially if I'm staying for longer than 2 nights. Also, for anyone that needs a lift to the airport, try and avoid booking with their contracted shuttle. They were terrible. Over 2 hours late to pick us up, rude driver and waaay too bumpy of a drive. Take a cab instead, if you're 2 people or more, it will cost you about the same anyways.
