Weekend Staycation
Really straight forward and efficient check-in/check-out. Staff were always pleasant and helpful whenever questioned. This hotel is in an ideal location if you’re looking at exploring Circular Quay via ferry services, and only a short Uber away from Darling Harbour.

Poor service
We had a terrible experience, long lines for check-in and check out, room wasn't ready until one and a half hours after check-in time, apology bottle of wine was never sent to the room, room was dusty and no customer service to speak of. I won't ever stay there again.
