We learned about Hotel 59 from TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed with our stay there. We walked everyday from the hotel each of our 3 days in Sydney and the location is perfect for such outings. George was very helpful and friendly and our room at the front of the building was great. Woke up to chirping birds...

We read good things about this hotel from Tripadvisor reviews as well as in a couple of the Frommers guide books. What the heck? I'm assuming that all the good reviews were from people who did NOT stay in one of the family rooms. The family room was so incredibly old fashioned and in need of repair that I couldn't...

Quiet residential area for ensuring a good sleep, as well as joggings in the morning. Yet it is not very far from the metro. The cleaness and facilities in the room are good enough. Plus there is free WIFI in the hotel. The most important is that the Owner George and his sister are so helpful, they worried and tried...

There is a new owner as of about 10 years ago. He called the shuttle to the airport with insufficient time to get there and I missed an international flight. He thereafter ignored my letter of complaint. No dusting or vacuuming of the room. No staff on site, and no voicemail system in phone, so no messages after 3pm. No...

Dear Visitorlosangeles Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. I am although saddened and confused to read them i thought you had left as a friend. Calling the shuttle is a free service we do for guests, we ask what time you wish to be picked and call for you. We only tell you they pick up...

Quiet location and accessible to Kings Cross and public transportation, high quality and clean bedrooms plus overall hotel premises, sumptuous and delicious breakfast (my complements to the chef!), great hospitality and efficiently friendly assistance from George himself. Will definitely stay at the hotel should we visit Sydney again. Highly recommended.

We stayed 3 nights with George and Co at Hotel 59 and enjoyed it immensely. It's no luxury apartment - it's a cute little place. Our itinerary meant we didn't get to spend too much time at the hotel, but the room was lovely and clean, we slept well, and the breakfast was everything I hoped for after reading everyone...

This hotel is an excellent value. It is an oldie but close to transportation, inexpensive, pleasant, and with breakfast, The clientele at breakfast seemed to be (besides the hotel guests) residents of the neighborhood which is very nice. Excellent shower and George is a helpful host. Wifi signal is strong in a room that was at the front of the...

I found Hotel 59 to be a great value. It's very close to public transport, but you can also walk to some attractions. My first day there I walked to the Royal Botanic Gardens then on to the harbour. It is in King's Cross which some people with children may not like, but I was ok with it. I was...

I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel 59 for three nights. It was a nice place to stay at. George was very helpful and if there people who needed travel advice, he would be more than happy to help them out. A free breakfast was included in the accomodation price which was one of the main reasons I chose...
