Loved the balcony to sit on. Room is on the small side . Could do with removing the bench at the end of the bed to increase space.. shower is tiny , you wouldn’t want to be a larger person no room to move . Shower alcove leaked so much that bath mat and floor became very wet. Great part of Potts Point to stay. Would stay again

We loved the location it was comfortable and very clean. We were able to take the lift to our room on the 4th floor and climb the one set of stairs easily with overnight bags. Some people might find the extra flight of stairs inconvenient. Staff were very welcoming and helpful.
