Location location location - Great. Room size good. Bed good. Pillow - a brick - bring your own! Room location - 3rd floor - Stairs, no lift. Window faced over the pub next door - was an exhaust unit running constantly from the kitchen, but closing the window cut the noise a lot. Did not affect sleeping :) Fans, but no AC. I suspect during a hot period, it may become 'uncomfortable'. Share bathrooms - reasonable. At $60 a nite, it is Good value. We will use George St Hotel again. If you are after the Ritz, look elsewhere!

Tried to ring the hotel 3 times during the evening to confirm checkin time. Phone rang out. Turned up at the hotel and reception had shut for the night - no keys or notes left out so I guess the hotel room was a forced forfeit. No comms at all from hotel before or after.
