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.

Very friendly staff. Hotel was very clean and quiet. Excellent location Gearge Street was one street over and Darling Harbour just a short easy walk. Restaurant was next door and a fabulous Coles just across the street. Definitely stay again

The room was very small. The bathroom was tiny. The beds were soft. No drawers. The place was obviously old and not refurbished When we arrived, the only person to help us with our luggage. And that was after we entered the building, and found only an elevator, no reception area and no receptionist. We had to guess that taking the elevator to the first floor would reward us by finding a reception area, and a receptionist. She was very helpful but there was no luggage trolley. Overall it came across as more like a hostel than a hotel

This place gets top marks for location . The room was very small but the bed was comfortable . The bathroom needs renovating but was adequate ( just). Able to leave our luggage there after checkout. Ok for one or two nights.

The room was so narrow, it was a 1-butt crossing pattern at all times. It was much less spacious than depicted. However, that's as it may be. We reported that the bed sagged to the middle & that the bath faucet leaked (onto the counter, floor, etc) after our first night. The receptionist did not seem to understand anything we were telling her. They did not fix either issue. On the 2nd morning, we complained to a different manager, who had to be shown the issues again. It did finally get fixed (they were, after all, easy fixes). But 2/3 of our time we had to put up with the issues. Otherwise, clean & well-located.

Very well located hotel. Walking distance to most of Sydney that visitors want to see. Useful shops nearby. Good value too for a comfortable bed and good shower. If I'm in Sydney again I'd be pleased to stay here. The very small single rooms are very small. OK for a one night stayover with minium luggage. Pay more for a bigger room for longer stays. It's still good value. However. This hotel does what it does very well, but doesn't do anything extra. What you get is what you get, which is fair, given the prices. One issue. I posted a complimentary review on Booking.com, with much the same comments as here. Given Booking.coms scoring system that came out as about 8 I think. I received an email from Megaboom offering me $30 and further discounts if I changed that review to a 10. I wouldn't do such a thing even if I knew how and am not best pleased by the offer. A black spot in an otherwise good experience.

This hotel is in the perfect location to all the main sights, train and bus stations. We used it as a base for a few nights. Overall, clean and functional. The only downsides: unable to open bedroom windows, hairdryer lasted 5 seconds before it cut out, in need of TLC (towel rail falling of wall, dusty extractors etc) otherwise, a good cheap base.

Hotel is located in the middle of the CBD central business district area. Convenient and easy to move around. To go to Darling harbour is about 20 minutes walk. Chinatown is also about the same walking duration. Shops are everywhere. Safe to come out in the evening…. Though hotel door closes at 11pm. Guest need to use their card key to access. Room is spacious. It has a safe and a mini fridge. Hotel staffs are excellent. Housekeeping also excellent.

The hotel was generic. The location was great, a hop, skip, and jump from theatres, mall, shops, trams, with a supermarket across road, and a hotel breakfast included. The room safe was on wardrobe floor, in the dark, low down where it was difficult to squash against furniture to get to it or see it, and I couldn't read instructions or see numbers so I didn't put stuff in it. Easy to get to hotel from airport train: get off at Town Hall station, follow underground signs to QVB past shops and then up QVB escalator, walk to far end of QVB mall. On left is York Street with hotel about 2 minutes away. Lots of nearby night and day restaurants. Hotel reception on first floor (2nd if you're from the States). There's a lift.

Good and bad experience. The room is small but has everything you’ll need. Very clean and comfortable. I always use a disinfectant wipe and found no dirt coming out. The bed was comfortable and location is perfect. Near the QVB and town hall train station. The bad I woke up this morning to no hot water for a shower. They should have called in maintenance but we had to wait until 9.00am. It was fixed but had to start the day with out a hot shower. The good was the free tea and toast in the morning. Well done thank you.

Excellent location to all the tourist sights with Tram and Trainds just five minutes walk away—great price for a nice clean hotel with additional free toast and coffee breakfast. Will certainly stay there again.
