    Great location, walking distance to Darling Harbour and Circular Quay and so many excellent bars and great places to eat. Pleasant staff, comfortable rooms, quiet hotel. Clarence Street has great atmosphere.

    The original room we had was tiny. There was no window. Only a skylight which had no block out and meant we were woken very early each morning due to the sunlight. The air conditioning then stopped working. We were finally reallocated a different room...More

    Value for money. It is very centrally located close to station, food, supermarket and Darling harbour. The staff were friendly and reception attended all night which I felt quite safe and secure about being so centrally located.

    Central Business District
    The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
    energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
    buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
    shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
    frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
    dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
    the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
    reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
