Clean, basic B&B style hotel, it was above a pub. Lift not working correctly but fine to walk up as I'm able. Breakfast included in a lovely small communal breakfast lounge. Would stay again as price reflects the accommodation.

My family with young children stayed mid January. I am aware of the very negative reviews here and think some of the comments were very far fetched. Perhaps they were travel snobs? It is by no means a glamorous hotel, it is designed to be...More

Good location, fast check in, self check out. No aircond but for dec nights still fine. Street noise bearable. Old fashioned but neat and clean so treat it as an antique touch, you feel good. Manually operated lift, yes, a new experience so the fact...More

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

Rooms don't have a bathroom. They are outside the room and you share with other guests. ... even the showers are shared.
