          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The general standard of accommodation was very good and represented great value for money. Also the location was very good.

            The plumbing in our room was not up to standard - the toilet did not flush properly and the plug in the basin was broken. The internet connection (ground floor) was user unfriendly and of little use when checking in an air flight.

          • Couple
            6.4

            The rooms were clean and tidy. The staff were (mostly) kind, courteous and helpful.

            The restaurant and bar were serviced by the same staff member, despite being separate, meaning that the service wasn't ideal.

          • Single
            6.6

            The room is clean and large. I feel comfortable.

            I feel that the communication speed for a wireless network is too slow.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            The bartender on duty was friendly and informative. The food was reasonably priced and tasted good. The Manager the next day was very helpful and apologetic, but really the staff would benefit from retraining if our experience with front desk was anything to go by.

            Upon checkin the receptionist was not helpful. My husband and I were put in a twin room and when I complained no effort was made to suggest an atlternative. We were told to read the small print next time. End of Story... We were not impressed by them at all.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            big room , clean , comfort , near to all places

            no variety of the breakfast ( same breakfast everyday )

          • Couple
            5.8

            This hotel had a lively atmosphere with good facilities in a fairly quiet location for a city centre. It is a reliable option. Ask for a room on the top 4 floors at the front for a city view.It takes about 15 minutes to walk into the city centre.

            Not many lifts for the number of floors.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            within walking distance of shops,china town,monorail and train stations. staff friendly and helpful.will recommend to friends.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            hotel was pretty central

            no view from our room 703 at all,menu very poor,

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Good Value for Money, close to all amenities

            Very slow lift, too long to wait sometimes, Sofa/Bed not very comfortable

          • Single
            9.6

            They have the best price for business/tourist 4* hotel in Sydney. Very flex cancelation policy.

            The only problem - when they allocate your room next/opposite to the lift (elevator) it could be very noicy becase of these lifts (they ring when coming to your level) - there is now way to sleep even in night because the hotel is in the gay aria and people hunging around round the clock. But should you ask reseption to change a room, they will do their best and even would upgrade you to the best available room at the moment! Best regards

          • Family with children
            7.8

            It was in a good location and provided clean and comfortable rooms and there was access in the rooms to fresh air.

            We booked two rooms, my sons were in room (I think 203). The air conditioner could not be turned off during the night and they both froze and have the flu as a result. My husband and I also tried to turn it off the next day and could not do so. This was our major issue.Their air con was an older model than the one in our room. I think there also needs to be more staff on the front desk as it took a long time to check into the hotel as both women were very busy. In fact not only did they have customers to deal with at the front counter they seemed to have a constant flow of phone calls that they were dealing with at the same time- this could perhaps be helped by facilitating room to room ph calls.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Convenient location and a later 10.30am check out

            I would have liked to have bought breakfast in the cafe after we checked out at 10.30am

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            comfort and convenience of location

            lack of option for free wifi, hairdryer did not work, tv channel had no sound.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            It was a perfect location for house, very reasonable rate for a one- bedroom apartment... And they let us check in about an hour early - great after travelling on the train with 3 young children.

            I had called the day before to confirm that a baby-cot would be included, it wasn't installed, but they had taken note of our request to make-up the sofabed for two of our kids. Which does offset the fact that I had to call down to reception twice before heading down myself to track down the cot - but I met one of the staff with said cot in a lift. A bit slack - they were very busy at the time - although they could have taken note of request for the cot as was done for the sofabed, but otherwise a great stay! Why not have the free abc for Kids channel? Its free!

            The location of the hotel was quite good and the room was nice. some of the staff were very helpful.

            Everything would have been perfect if all of the staff were as helpful as each other. I found some of the staff very unhelpful and it seemed like they didnt really know what they were talking about. It would be helpful to have transport information available at the hotel about the specific bus routes, trains etc. that are accessible close to the hotel. Also the plan of what to do during a fire definitely needs some work. It was good to know that the fire alarm works however more communication was needed between the hotel staff and the guests.
