Great location, right in the middle of everything. Room was clean and quiet with comfy beds. Easy walk up to Hyde park and down to China Town. Few shops cafes and restaurants downstairs are a great bonus.

Location is very close to Central Station and Surry Hills which was great. Bed was comfortable and the service was adequate. The room was very spacious and clean with all amenities however the room didn’t seem to have adequate lighting.

Certainly central to everything we wanted in Sydney. Check in and out was a dream. Freezer in the fridge in our room didn’t work and pillows were a bit flat. We will be booking here again.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the review of our hotel. We are pleased you had such an enjoyable experience checking in and out however I am sorry for the issue with the fridge and also the pillows inside the room. Feel free to contact reception on your next stay as we would be more than happy to have the fridge looked at and also offer alternate pillows. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future! Kind Regards, Matt Curran- Rooms Division Manager

I think the fish pond ( which could be a fabulous feature) looks very unappealing. The fish are not thriving. A makeover is in order- a designed interior not just random rocks and algaed tiles. Real plants a whole little environment needs
