    Good in all

    The room was large, with bath and window to the courtyard. Everything is, as already mentioned several times, in the years (historic hotel) and would have to be renovated, but clean, and the staff is friendly and professional. For the price and location there is nothing better. Close to Haymarket and close to Central Station. The cleanliness was ok, but not outstanding. The carpet was already very worn and also in the bathroom left the time clear traces. The staff was experienced and friendly. I would have liked a little more warmth. Wi-Fi is pretty expensive in this hotel.

    Clean, convenient, friendly

    This is my 'go to' hotel in Sydney. I stay here 2 or 3 times per year. As a female (usually) solo traveller I feel safe in this area day and night. The hotel is convenient- close to public transport, China town, markets, Darling Harbour and restaurants. The hotel is clean, comfortable and the staff very helpful. Food in the 'pub' section is also very high quality. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
