Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great Hotel close to darling Harbour and other hotspots. The price was also great for a 4 star hotel compared to the other hotels which were all expensive at the time. All in all, great room and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Great little hotel tucked away in a great spot close to the action of Sydney. Allowed us an early check in and late check out, missed Breakfast both mornings of our stay as the opening times were quite limited. But they offered me a refund 👍🏽

Bed wasn't comfortable, hopefully just a one off and not every room. The room and bathroom were nicely set out with all new looking decor. Awesome value for money except for the bed. The other negative was the breakfast buffet. Save your money and eat elsewhere, dry and greasy not well stocked and overpriced for what was offered, even with the discounted pre-purchase price.

Room was clean and nice large bathroom. All areas are well lit. Bed was comfortable even though it was firm. Coffee/tea set up in each room. The room did have a refrigerator. NOTE: The hotel does serve breakfast, but at a very high cost in our opinion, and they request reservations (?) for breakfast. There is a full bar set up but it was never open during our stay. In fact, it appears to not being used at all.

Thank you for your review and for highlighting the size of our rooms and the cleanliness of our facilities. We're pleased to hear that you found the bathroom spacious and the bed comfortable. Regarding breakfast, we offer a discounted full buffet breakfast for our guests, providing a variety of options to start your day right. We apologize if the pricing did not meet your expectations. As for the dinner restaurant and bar, we have temporarily closed these facilities due to the high number of restaurants in the vicinity, offering a wide range of dining options just steps away from the hotel. We appreciate your feedback and hope to welcome you back for another stay in the future.

The size of the room was very disappointed for the price stayed elsewhere in Sydney for cheaper, and the rooms were bigger. They oversell it on the website it’s not as luxurious as they claim. Staff were absolutely lovely though.

Pros. Excellent position and near to public transport . Easy check in and out . Comfortable big bed. Dark room . Very clean , modern, refurbished and serviced daily. Free toiletry’s , coffee/tea making facility’s . Fridge and iron/ironing board. Cons. We booked a room and paid for 3 adults however the sofa bed in my opinion is not fit for purpose. Very hard , at an odd angle and much too short for an adult . This should be advertised as suitable for child only . The ‘balcony’ is very small and only for standing on . The ac unit just fit . The main drawback is the noise. The walls are paper thin and if next to a noisy family like we were for the first night , we were awake most of the night . The toilet and front doors were heard banging all night as no soft closure and in the morning the maids woke us every morning we were there . This hotel seriously needs some sound proofing . We were staying in a 1st floor room maybe higher floors were better . We did ask to move but no other rooms were available unfortunately. Overall this hotel is good value if you don’t mind noise .

Hotel was located close to Darling Harbor. Easy to find and with a quick train ride from the airport a 10-15 minute walk to the hotel it was an easy process. Staff were great and the breakfast on offer daily in the restaurant was fantastic value.Rooms were clean and tidy. If you want to see Sydney and save a bit of coin with accomadation you cant go past this hotel.

The best part of this hotel stay was the location and the customer service I received from one of the team members. He was working the evening shift, I believe his name was Raj. I had an issue that involved making an international call. Raj went above and beyond in helping me resolve the issue. While others could have easily said there's nothing they can do, he demonstrated compassion, empathy, creativity, and great professionalism in solving the problem, and I believe that should be recognized. Thanks again, Raj! You have no idea how much that helped in that moment.
