I spent only 1 night but would have loved more. My stay was excellent, the hotel is clean, room clean and beautiful with a very good bathroom. The location is also a very good point, just in the heart of Sydney, many things to do around. And wifi is free !! (it's so rare in Australia).

Great stay in convenient location. Could not fault staff and facilities were excellent. Very quiet although you are in a busy streetscape. Only minor niggle was the tiny room - but understandable for a city hotel.

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.
