          Hi Sylvia, I am going to Sidney next week and Hotel Vulcan seems a fairly good option. Your review is pretty interesting but I do not understand the reason why you gave four points as the worst note and you also gave a five note but in the general evaluation you have given three. Can you explain me a little better please, Thanks for the help Best regards Corrado
