Lena, us3 night trip
Cambridge Hotel Sydney, Surry Hills
Awesome stay, great location
From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by the front desk, happy, smiling, friendly. Quick check-in, explained the hotel and surrounding areas. Room was clean (except one of the beds sheets was dirty underneath) balcony, bathroom well stocked and clean. Only suggestion, reconfigure the shower doors as they let a lot of water out. The hotel decor was nice, modern, colorful. Best part about the hotel and didn't realize it until after getting there was in was LGBT friendly and in the middle of the gay area.
