We arrived early in the morning from a 12 day cruise, and it was no trouble at all to store our suitcases until check in time. The staff were very helpful and very friendly. The location was excellent with only 2 minutes walk to chinatown and 5 minute walk to Darling Harbour.

Located very centrally in George Street near China Town and Darling Harbour we enjoyed our stay in Sydney. The place was very clean, spacious and the staff at reception was friendly. Only minus is that there is no free WIFI in the rooms included in the rather high rate.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
