It was right In the heart of old Sydney and walking distance from our cruise port. We had a lovely view of the ship and when it moved we could see the opera house. Shops and restaurants were abundant.

  • Disliked: Staff & service

DON’T stay here for an early check in. We tried to communicate with the property prior to our arrival that our overnight flight would arrive in the morning and we would pay for early arrival - but they never responded to either request. We paid for a Harbour view but they were the last rooms cleaned on check in day - and your Harbour view 99% of the time will be a view of a huge cruise boat and hardly ever the Sydney Opera house as they picture. The room itself was pretty small and they bathroom was a bit outdated but they had strong WiFi and great hair dryer & comfortable beds. I did not feel like customer satisfaction was a top priority, but they are very close to the cruise ship boarding and will be packed regardless - so if your cruising this place is convenient, but if your just in Sydney for a short visit I wouldn’t recommend this place due to their lack of communication and low priority of our customer satisfaction. Had they responded to our request and told us - no early check in - we could have used our travel insurance and cancelled the request and found a hotel that could have met our needs.

Got off to a bit of a rocky (excuse the pun) start with this hotel - they couldn't find my booking in the system then served up the worst room service I've ever had - frozen pizzas barely thawed and completely inedible, and soggy sweet potato 'chunks' in a congealed lump in the bottom of the bowl. However, the location is excellent, the rooms were clean and tidy and promptly serviced daily, and subsequent meals from the hotel were considerably better. A bit overpriced for the 'budget' feel of the building and rooms but fantastic location and clean and tidy.
