4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We loved the location and accessibility to popular attractions and public transport. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff was friendly and efficient. However, we had two days/nights without airconditioning on a humid weekend. We found the seating arrangement with only two chairs in the foyer completely inadequate and suggested to the manager that a long couch which wrapped around the display feature would be necessary for waiting guests.

This hotel is excellent value. At a higher price point, I might consider other properties, however at the nightly rate I stayed, I was highly satisfied. Check-in was smooth and immediate. The location is superb. The rooms surface are clean, though both times I stayed, needed more thorough and deep carpet, bathroom clean plus general dust detail and aircon vent maintenance. A few missing things, like kitchenette and bathtub would make this my go-to when visiting, but otherwise it is still one of my top preferences in Sydney.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

Had a terrible experience for my two nights stay. When I check out and wanted to store my luggages, the staff lady working there did not put the tags on right away and just told me to leave my luggages out in the lobby and just decided to serve the next person in line. I feel that it’s unsafe to just leave my luggages unintended. This is very unprofessional and unacceptable. She should’ve put the tags on before serving the next person. Very disappointed.
