Lovely hotel with a lot of character. Close to Central and the Entertainment Quarter so it was perfect for us. Beautiful view of a Jacaranda from our window. Comfy bed and clean facilities.

Great location, handy to everything

Had a garden view room facing the courtyard, was super quiet. Small basic room, but perfect for a weekend in Sydney if you’re not going to be sitting around much!

Free parking was good, but the room smelt strongly of bleach. Whilst the double glass it the front kept the majority of traffic noise down, it still woke us up. Bed was hard. Water pressure in the shower was great.

Rooms are a little small but some are better than others. Fridge in our room had been turned off, we turned it back on but in the middle of the night it was very noisy so this may have been why it was turned off. Staff are helpful and the Arts Bar next door is handy - the food is reasonable in quality and price. Good to have luggage storage facilities. Close to transport

A comfortable overnight stay. Hotel recommended Arts Bar next door (for which guests receive a discount) for dinner and Arthouse Kitchen (just round the corner) for breakfast. Both were excellent.

Location is great, a couple of the staff were quite rude, the place is old but in reasonable condition, small rooms but that’s all that was needed.

Good for the budget conscious. Awesome location. Staff were really friendly and available. Able to leave my bag there whilst I explored. Didn't have time to use outdoor facilities but saw others use the pool.
