I would have given this place one star but for its very convenient location and for the fact that through amazingly bad luck we later found an even worse place to stay in Sydney (The Criterion). Cold Mainland Chinese operated place. Ghastly rooms. Noisy. Zero...More

Stayed on 4th floor, no lifts in the hotel. Aircon noisy with continuous vibrating sounds, could not use it at night. No work table, only table in room has a desktop TV on it. TV cable hanging from the wall across the room.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
