The hotel is in an ideal location, just yards away from Circular Quay - we arrived by train from the airport very easily, despite heavy suitcases. We decided to go for one of the rooms with an en-suite and really wished that we had paid for a bigger "superior" room. And unfortunately they were fully booked when we enquired about upgrading - so get in early!
I agree with an earlier reviewer that it's not cheap but then you're paying for the location which is absolutely ideal for getting about. Also it would be a nice gesture to have wifi included in the price but in reality it was only $5 for 24hrs.
Breakfast was simple but excellent and we also thoroughly enjoyed a meal in the Wine Bar one evening. Lovely friendly staff on reception.
