My one night stay was in a room best described as functional, fairly well maintained albeit with obvious band-aid solutions to maintenance issues, the bare minimum of facilities, maybe a bit of old-fashioned charm if your taste runs to Darcy Niland novels. For the price it's good value, its position on Oxford St is great if you like a bit of streetlife, and the people are very nice.

Great location. We were in Sydney for various theatre experiences and it was perfect for letting us get around.

We stayed her for 3 nights in December. I would like to list the Pros & Cons based on our experience Pros 1. Hassle free after hours check in - We were contacted in advance & provided clear instructions on how to check in. 2. Location - The place is located close to all amenities & public transport. 3. Reasonably priced & kids under 8 can stay for free if they can share their parents' bed. Cons 1. No parking - There's no free parking available at or near the hotel, which is hassle if you decide to leave the car & take public transport when going into the city. We were lucky enough to be able to park for free as there were a couple of public holidays during our stay (Sunday restrictions apply). 2. The kitchenette in the room is located right near the toilet. 3. There are no lifts in the hotel. Overall, its a decent place to stay for a short duration.

Photo is even more unrepresentative than most. This feels like a budget pub conversion that is really only suitable if you absolutely have to stay in the area (or can get a significant discount on the sticker price).

The stairs are a big problem for older people but very central and nice staff.

Super convenient and reasonably priced

We came to the city for a gig at the Oxford Art Factory and it's so incredibly convenient to be right on Oxford st. There's no parking at the hotel but there is good parking for free near the National Art School. Will be staying again no doubt.
