The Hotel is situated at Ultimo, in the centre of the University district. The Neighbourhood is really quiet and safe, even at night. It is walk distance to places such as the Sydney Fish Market, Central Station and Chinatown. Nearby has lots of cafes for quick breakfast bites well.

The standard of the refurbishment of this hotel clearly shows that Metro are committed to it as an enterprise. The rooms are large an well appointed, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is pretty good (the tropical water wall is amazing!), and I'm a fan of the area it's in. My room, at least, was pretty well...

We have removed the ashtray and addressed this issue. Our team has also investigated several reports of smoking on the balcony, and we have taken action to combat illegal activity. We...

Nice, quiet residential street, but only a 10 minute walk to Chinatown, about 20 to Darling Harbour. Staff were very helpful. Room was pleasant enough, and clean. Nice to have a balcony, even if the view wasn't great! Good value, considering it is so central.

Great location to Sydney very close to central station and China town. Modern spacious rooms. Helpful staff. Didn't try the restaurant there but it looked good. Easy access to the city and transport services. Good wifi connection.

Just recently refurbished, but a disappointment. Towels were really thin. Pillows thin also. One blonde male receptionist needs either much further training or showing the door - really bad customer relations!!! Other staff very good. Rooms are not that sound proof. Doors need to have bottom seals to keep noise out - too far off the new thinner carpet. Can't...

This is not much of a walking distance to nearby attractions. If you're willing to walk longer than the usual, then this hotel is OK . Staff was very nice and courteous, value for money indeed. Breakfast available for an additional fee.

For much cheaper than majority of other hotels in the area. 15 mins walk from the Central station, and only 10 or so from Darling Harbour, so was fantastic for location. The only...

Was going to see a show at the Lyric Theatre and this place was perfectly positioned. Away from the noise but within walking distance to everything. Staff could not be faulted on their outstanding service and genuine friendliness. Rooms are a good size and the shower was great! Would definitely stay here again - highly recommend it.
