    I was extremely dissapointed. The picture were misleading! The room was dirty, dust everywhere... and the bathroom was worse. There was no heat insulation and it was really noisy. I would never return in this horrible hotel even if I was paid to.

    Small dingy dive. Terribly overpriced for a place to avoid regardless of great location. Could not believe and embarrassed paying almost $250 for 2 nights in a hovel. Doesn't even merit a mention on the web

    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
