Good 6.0
Room was very dated, not as comfortable as other hotels we stayed at in Sydney for the price. Close to the Opera House was very convenient
Casey, us1 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
Four night stay July 2019
This hotel was part of a tour package for three nights plus I extended my stay by an extra night at end of tour. Upon arrival with my assigned tour roommate we were given a kIng sized bed.rather than the two separate beds we had on the rest of the tour. When I called the front desk I was informed that "that is what you ordered" .I explained that I had obviously not requested a shared bed and I was informed there were no twin beds available. After several attempts the situation was finally resolved . However, when staying my solo night at the end of the tour the room was not reconfigured to a kIng room like I requested. Staff was uniformly courteous and helped me book opera tickets and with navigating Sydney, Housekeeping did an excellent job of keeping room and all areas clean. The hotel is in a historic building and situated in a very convenient location to walk to many attractions such as the Opera House. Breakfast was excellent but during peak hours of 9am to 10am was chaotic and crowded. Management suggested you go before 8:30 to avoid long lines,etc.I was on the 13th floor and there was noise from construction from early in morning until after dark. I requested a city vIew for my night after the tour which turned out to overlook a high rise construction site. Overall, I enjoyed the hotel and would recommend to friends but for a hotel of this caliber more attention to detail would improve the experience.
