Location is great but rooms on the sixth floor were below standardโ€ฆ..old and well worn. Noise from neighbouring bars loud enough to stop your sleep until after bar closing at 3am. Would not stay there again.

The location is perfect for exploring The Rocks and harbour area. We found the in-room dining options very limited and morning coffee to take away was non-existent. Staff were helpful.

The location was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel however is in dire need of renovation, the carpet in our room was very worn and the decor is very tired. It was easily the worst shower I've had from a recognized hotel chain ,with pressure that wouldn't knock a baby bird off it's perch but unless you were really care the hot water would take your skin off. The hotel pictures were very economical with the truth especially the pool pics. Breakfast was excellent and good value .

This hotel is located in a great area for walking and exploring. It is convenient for the waterfront and tours. Saturday morning there was even a street market adjacent to the hotel with very nice offerings. The hotel itself is old, small elevators and maze like corridors, but clean. The only complaint is that dinner is only served Thursday to Saturday. When we went on Friday they were out of several items on a very limited menu. If you are looking for gluten free or vegetarian options youโ€™d best go elsewhere.
