Very nice hotel with terrific extras like free mini bar and ‘loot bag’. The room was very clean and comfortable. Toiletries and tea/coffee supplied were nice quality products. The bed was not the most comfortable I have slept in but it was adequate. I would definitely stay here again. Great value and great location.

Very thoughtful and practical touches, like multiple universal adapters in the room, super comfy beds and pillows as well as really stylish and quirky elements like the lifts and interiors. This is my new favorite Hotel in Sydney. I am looking forward to staying here again
