Positive Reviews

Clean, spacious and well-appointed rooms

Most reviewers liked the generously-sized rooms, adding that they were comfortable and well-furnished. A few visitors had minor grumbles about the cleanliness of the rooms, occasionally observing dust or little things missed by housekeeping. Nonetheless, most guests thought the rooms were well-cleaned throughout their stays.

Handy location

Being about five minutes' walk from Sydney central train station, most guests found the location handy for getting around the city and easily catching trains to and from the airport. Situated on the edge of Sydney's central business district, there were plenty of visitors who liked the hotel's easy access to the city center and areas like nearby Surry Hills with its range of dining options and popular cafes.

Warm welcome from friendly staff

On the whole, guests were pleased with the attitude and warm welcome from the hotel personnel, calling them efficient and friendly.

Negative Reviews

Occasional maintenance issues

A few guests criticized occasional minor maintenance matters like worn furniture, weak showers, aging carpets, non-functioning air-conditioning and mold in the bathrooms.

Noise disturbed light sleepers

If you're a light sleeper, you might prefer rooms not facing Albion Street and central station, which some visitors described as fairly noisy at night due to street noise and the sound of passing trains. There were also some accounts of poor soundproofing in the rooms, which meant guests could hear people walking along the corridors.

Mixed views on value for money

Some of those who paid a premium for a room during busy periods left reviews saying they felt they didn't get value for money compared to other high end accommodation they had experienced before.
