Hotel and room were clean, the room is small but sufficient for a short stay. The room has been renovated and the bathroom facilities updated. Shower was great with good water pressure. Our room faced onto George St which is always very busy but due to double glazing the room was very quiet with no traffic noise or noise from...

I stayed here for three nights recently for work. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The location of this hotel is great. It's right near a bunch of pubs and coffee shops and transport is right outside the hotel door. The air con is excellent. Finally I had a hotel where the air con worked. Bed was comfortable and the...

I like this place. We had a small but quiet and clean room. Room was also serviced over our 2 night stay. Everything was super clean and the staff are really helpful. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone. The only downside is the parking costing 30 per day but I guess that is Sydney for you.

I would give this hotel five stars: it's right in the middle of Chinatown, within walking distance of the harbor with the Opera house and all the other fun stuff. If you get a room towards the back it's really quiet. I like the design, it's clean and well kept, in a (somewhat) historic building. What I did not like:...

This was my first visit to 8 Hotels, and it didn't disappoint. I was looking for somewhere quiet to stay where I could get a good nights sleep. Happy to say the room was clean, quiet and comfortable and I would come back again and/or try your hotels in other cities.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
