The clothes wire in the bathroom was rusty/gooey, I couldn't hang my daughters wet tee-shirt on it. Room service was very over priced for...

I find it hard to review this hotel, at which I've stayed several times, and accept the less than positive comments made by others. The positives are the location, the very comfortable beds and the friendly and efficient staff. I had an issue with the TV, reported it to the desk and within a few hours a brand new TV...

Just a short walk to Sydney University which was the basis of our stay. Close to Newtown and Alexandria which is full of great, cafes and shops. Right on the doorstep of RPA. The room was basic but served the purpose.

The hotel is tired, over priced and lacking any quality. The staff were friendly and helpful but couldn't can't make up for the poor state of the hotel. No mini bar, mound in the shower and overall in desperate need of a refurb.

This was my second visit. Better experience. Room seemed more modern. Staff still friendly and quick with sorting requests. Wifi is good. Restaurants nearby. Close to hospital. 3 km odd pleasant walk into central. Or buy an opal card and use the plentiful buses.

With little/no choice on where to stay close to the UoS Mind and Brain Institute, I continue to make the same mistake, if not living in hope, and staying at Rydges in Camperdown.
