this hotel is right downtown, right across the street from paddys market (literally a 2 minute walk, if youre slow like me) and its a great place to get food and really the BEST priced souveniers in Sydney. Trust me! The downside to the hotel was that we were on level 11 (top floor) and that was great, except that we had 4 suitcases and once we got to the top floor, there was a set of 10 stairs that led up to the room (no elevator access. period.) other than the stairs, the hotel itself is a good walk from either the railway stations "central" or "museum". even "town hall" was a walk, so if youre not big into walking, be sure to look up the metro system and plan accordingly. maps all look flat and there are lots of hills around. my husband and i were able to easily walk to darling harbor, the IMAX theatre, and the chinatown. room had a fridge (nice and cold) and bathroom was roomy. also, if you are trying to get to this hotel by shuttle bus (the one they state is $14 on their site info) it is NOT through their hotel and you will need to make different arrangements. its some other company that takes you about 50 minutes from what i was told to get to the hotel. plan your shuttle ahead of time!

Situated in the southern end of Sydney's central business district, the hotel is ideally positioned to allow you to make the most of your visit to Sydney.
