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.

The pub has new owners and is a great place to visit, friendly staff and a more local feel with a great range of beers and craft beers. The evenings trade is relaxed and not as troublesome as it once was, they now also have outdoor seating which is great.

I was staying at Holiday Inn Kings Cross and was told it was a nice place to visit. Upon arriving I was denied entrance because the security staff said I was intoxicated and I never even had 1 drink. They were very rude to me and I would NOT recommend this establishment!

Always stay in this place when i come to Sydney. This building was built more than 100 years ago, room with high ceiling and old furnitures but all well maintained. Clean budget room, all rooms have private bathroom, good price comparing all hostels nearby, every room seperated with thick wall but it could be noisy sometimes from the pub downstair and loud talking of people on the street. Nothing fancy but has kettle, refridge, hair dryer, tv, strong shower, very good location in Sydney's famous surburb "king cross" known as red light district, only 15-20min walking to CBD and train station within 100 meters away. No elevator, no wifi, no reception at all times but easy check-in at the pub downstair, 2-3 times a week for cleaning service. If u look for a budget stay then i would recommend to stay here than in hostels!!!

It was perfect for what I needed, a bed for one night in central Sydney. I literally checked in and crashed out, woke up the next morning and left. At the ground floor is the famous O'Malley's Bar, it was full on Saturday night and people were having a good time. I was shown my room upstairs and tidied up and went straight to sleep. I didn't hear a thing, nor the music from the bar below the place is fairly well insulated for noise from the Bar. For what I needed, it was perfect. The room on the second level was large and clean, had a television and a good shower. I slept through the night, got up early the next morning and tried to leaf. There was no one around, the whole place was closed up. So you have to let yourself out and leave the key in a handy spot. Overall it was ok for what I needed.

Did not go to the hotel - only the pub That's a really friendly experience . This was open mic night and the singing was good and fun. Drinks were cheap. Crowd was a mix of old and young . Not much more to ask. Recommended if you want a non sleazy drink near the cross .

I stayed there few nights and I can say that it was really nice. I didn't have big expectations since it's just above an Irish pub. But I was really surprised to see that it's much better quality than most of the hostel and way cheaper than any hotel in the area. I am going to go back soon. Thanks all of you guys for the nice time over there.
