The customer service was well and above what I expected. It is located far enough from the city centre that it wasn’t noisy, but close enough I could still walk to the light rail connection. Would stay again!!

The quiet location was a surprise so close to the city but very welcome. The close proximity to the Powerhouse Museum, Darling Harbour, Chinatown, the theatre and the city was excellent!
