Had to find last minute accommodation and this place was great. Really efficient and professional check in, room wasn't roomy but super clean and very quiet. There are a tonnes of great, cheap places to eat and transport super close. I was really impressed and will stay again.

Convenient location, close to public transport, clean comfortable rooms, friendly staff. Ideal if you just want somewhere to sleep and shower. May not suit parsons who are not able to walk up and down stairs.

My only complaint would be there could have been a couple more power points. The power points installed were a little hard to access for iPhone recharging. Room quiet, clean & the bed very comfortable. Staff helpful and cheerful & hotel location excellent -close to the central train station, RSL, Chinatown, the wharf area & Circular Quay. Good bed.

Easy to find, excellent customer service, pleasing colour scheme throughout, and a very comfortable room. The front lift wasn't working when I arrived, but was fixed by later that afternoon. Great value for money.

Friendly staff. Small yet clean rooms. Inexpensive. Close to Chinatown and Darling Harbour, quick walk to Museum St station where you can catch train to Circular Quay. Not far to walk to QVB. Coffee shops around for easy breakfast. Would stay here again.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
