Great place to stay that is reasonably priced. Staff very friendly, room was quite large. Only drawback was the windows were glazed for privacy so it was a little claustrophobic. Great location for easy access to CBD.

Excellent central position and wonderful service. We have stayed here 4 times in the last 3 months and will continue to stay here in the future. Have recommended CRH to our family & friends and some of our family have already received the same wonderful service.

I called to say I was coming quite early and the room was available much sooner than check-in time and was perfectly cleaned. Room was also quiet Airport shuttle was very convenient and at a fare price (50AUD for 5)

Staff are really helpfull and informative regarding places to visit in Sydney and the public transportation services. The hotel is quite near to the Central Railway Station about 500 meters or about 15 minutes walk and not far from city center. Rooms are well equipped.

A bus-stop is just across the road for easy access into the city as an alternative. A variety of restaurants/cafes, supermarkets - Woolworths and Coles + a pharmacy all within walking...
