The views were just spectacular and we had no problems seeing the opera house and Sydney Harbour bridge. Pretty awesome. The room itself was modern, clean and well refurbished (despite the age of the property). Mod cons available all around, from fridge to hairdryer to safe. There's also a large LED TV which we didn't watch. Beds were fairly comfortable. Location wise, the hotel is about three bus stops away from where the main action is. That said, it is walk able to Hyde Park and St James T station (you must be reasonably fit as it's upslope). From there, it's another 10 min to George Street. Hotel doesn't provide free water but a metro supermarket is just next door so we got water there quite easily.
