#4 of 6 hotels in Coogee
If it's a Sydney beach hotel you're after, there's none better located than Dive Hotel. It's 20 minutes drive from Sydney Airport and the City. It's a door-to-door bus ride away to the City, Opera House,NSW Uni, Randwick Racecourse, Aussie Stadium, and Cricket Ground.And it's a frisbee throw away to parks and pools, clifftop walks and Coogee's thriving restaurant, pub, club and cafe culture. It featured in Travel & Leisure USA, Conde Nast Traveler, NY Times,Time Out, Lonely Planet, London Observer and Guardian.Surf the net to your heart's content, thanks to free Wi-Fi. It's just one of the practical things that a Dive room provides. No expensive mini-bar, but a well-equipped kitchenette, with a fridge, microwave, tea, coffee and milk etc. There's free-to-air cable television, and a portable CD player. All rooms have aircon and a state-of-the-art stainless steel and blue tiled bathroom with a decent-sized hairdryer and a grown-up iron and board.Please note that there are 2 dogs on hotel premises.

Choose another place, No staff at reception, climb the narrow stairs, open the big heavy door, trip up the angled metal plate in the floor, decipher the instructions to get your room key from a locked box, struggle up the narrow old school wooden stairs into grey dim corridor. The room was poky and small. No art work, tiny bathroom. The room was grey and dark, no natural light. No remote for air-conditioning, no USB charger, no number provided for the managers, no response from my email to management. Not cheap.

After reading mostly positive reviews, seeing the pictures and paying close to $200 per night, my expectations were relatively high. Unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed. Checking in after hours is clunky (as reception work limited hours) and the place is very very dated - it's time some serious money was spent on a renovation. Our room smelt like rising damp and when showering water went everywhere (as there's no screen between the shower and rest of the bathroom). The breakfast offering showed no imagination (extremely basic - not sure why they bother), we ended up ordering a second breakfast from a café most mornings. The Dive is more like staying at a private room in a hostel. The price per night should reflect the offering. Lastly, I was surprised when booking that there were no warnings the Dive doesn't have an elevator and has a very narrow stair case to access half the rooms. If someone was checking in after hours and had a disability or broken/sprained foot it would be impossible for them to access their room and no one would be there to rectify the situation!

My family and I don't really go for the luxury 5 star hotel. We prefer a comfortable, family run place, where we feel genuinely welcome and can have a nice chat with the people who run the place. That is what we found at the Dive hotel. The hotel is well run, very clean and has all essential facilities.
