Service from the reception was good and the staff was friendly and nice. But there was no shampoo. Not a must but would be nice to have some. Loyalty points can't be accumulated. Location is good for us

We stayed for less than 12 hrs as a stopover for our flight. The hotel is strictly OK. The proximity to the airport is the only thing that works for it. The facilities are as basic as you can image. There is hardly space to walk in the room when you enter because the bed occupies most of the room.

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
