The hotel was lovely, clean and staff friendly. Location was great! Do yourself a favour though and avoid the hotel restaurant. Terrible service, and food was very unappealing!

The hotel was very close to Darling Harbour, Paddy Markets, The Star and Pyrmont. We walked everywhere and all within 10 to 15 minutes. there are bus stops to take you into the other side of the city great place will definitely stay there again. If I had only one complaint we were on the first floor and had a balcony overlooking the street and people would get on their balconies all hours if the night and talk on their mobile phones very loudly no consideration for people trying to sleep and also cars pulling up at front of hotel and getting out and being loud so when I stay again will not stay on level one will ask to go Up higher and no balcony
