They do have a microwave in the room if you wish to get some ready to eat / frozen food. the swimming pool is kind...

Overnight stay for a concert. Had previously stayed at the hotel and was impressed at the staff and rooms (was upgraded through Le club). This time the first room was very noisy (ventilation) and had a large iron burn in the carpet. Much less than what we expected. A quick chat with the friendly staff had everything resolved for a...

The room was comfortably sized and clean and comfortable. We had a view over office buildings which was good - better than the other side which is looking over messy apartment blocks. Staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was great - lots of options and choice. Go early to avoid the rush as it gets very busy. Pillows were...

My husband and I have stayed here twice, both times just as a bit of an escape from a crowded house. Both time we have stayed we have been upgraded to the executive floor and a suite. Sure the hotel rooms could probably do with an update but they very clean, very comfortable and facilities are great. For the price...

After working all week in 43 Deg heat on the NSW Central Coast, we needed a break from Sydney's heatwave to catch up on lost sleep at the weekend. We found exactly what we were looking for in this hotel - aircon was very cooling, a pool to jump into, eating and coffee places nearby and a comfortable king room...

Comfortable room with great airconditioning, close to Chinatown, the harbour, and public transport. Great food and comfortable conference room with excellent service that kept our group well fed, and watered, and the toilets very clean.

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.
