Can't begin to thank Tamara and the team at the hotel. Have now stayed twice when travelling for work and it's been nothing but fantastic!! Perfect room for what I need, very tidy and well taken care off. The front of house staff are knowledgeable and were a great help when figuring out the city. Will be staying over and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. First night was good but I was exhausted from working all day so a bomb could have gone off and I would not have heard it. Room is cosy, big enough for one person and the bathroom was larger than the Melbourne hotel. Bed was a bit uncomfortable. Didn't give 4 stars because the room... More

EXTREMELY helpful & friendly staff, close to bus and train lines, not a far walk from Darling Harbor and attractions. Room VERY quiet, clean, bed GREAT, shower flow superb. Room so narrow there was not one bedside table, so normal stuff had to go on floor; bathroom sink smallest in the universe - couldn't keep one thing on it, but... More

Good location near China Town,old but refurbished with basic furniture. Would have preferred better furniture in the room, like chair(s) bedside tables and bedside lamp. Room and shower were clean. Could not pull curtains because the Bunk beds were up against them. The windows were frosted however and we had an early start.

Staying with a large group of people, our room slept everybody comfortably. The rooms were very quiet and the beds comfortable. The hotel is located centrally in the heart of Sydney, close to transport, shops and eateries.

Stayed in a 'Shoebox' for 6 nights although didn't appreciate the layout. Typical hotel rooms have the bathroom next to the corridor with the bed further into the room.

Perfect location for a night out. Amazing price. Plenty of towels, soaps etc. I'd give a higher rating if the pillows were a bit softer and there were a few little cockroaches near the bathroom drain.

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.
