          Need to be able to reduce noise levels from surrounding streets. The window that is welded open does not provide any shield from outside traffic noise. The mini fridge was not emptied prior to our arrival and contained old milk and opened bottles of coke.More

          Hotel is OK for budget conscious. Clean and tidy. Not that suitable for business travellers. My original room didn't have a study table. Ventilation needs to be improved musty smell in room. Leaky window in my room was probably the cause.More

          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
