    Our room was putrid, stains all over the carpet, mould in the bathroom, chips and leftover food behind the bedside drawers. The location of the hotel was perfect but the state of the room was not. Will not be booking there again

    Great value, close to everything, clean & tidy hotel room. The windows weren't the best & did let in a bit of city noise, but for the location, cost & what you get; I was more than happy. Reception staff were friendly & helpful.

    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
