Great Southern Hotel - Sydney, Haymarket
Excellent4.0 / 5
Made the right choice.
Came in from Canberra so the location is perfect as it is near the Central Station. Is also close to Chinatown and shopping is everywhere. As it sits back away from the harbor it is excellent to encourage seeing more depth to the whole city, including the University, Centennial Park area, and even out to Bondi Beach (a stiff walk). The building has history and contant updates are probably being made but my room was as quiet as a proverbial mouse.

Convenient & clean
Front desk staff at check-in not the most personable, but their temporary working conditions I'm sure could contribute to workplace mood. Check-in process was quick and easy and our rooms were ready early which was great. Other staff throughout the hotel were courteous and helpful when encountered. Hotel is undergoing major renovation of HVAC system, so things were a bit torn up and lobby area temporarily moved, but reno noise was never a problem and we were happy with our basic room. We opted for no maid service the couple of nights we were there, but were told we could put our trash outside the room and request fresh towels or toiletries from the front desk. Our room was clean, carpet seemed relatively new, it is an old hotel in a humid city so as some reviewers might point out that you may find some dingy corners and tile. For the price it was a great location near the Central Station and included everything we needed. My husband even had to spend most of a day in the room after throwing out his back, and he was able to make himself relatively comfortable. The hotel is in the middle of Chinatown, with plenty of shopping, trendy restaurants & pubs next to some slightly dodgy looking businesses - a busy part of the city so expect a little of everything! We didn't have the breakfast offered, but the restaurant appeared to be fairly popular as was the pub which had a good happy hour. Street out front is also undergoing major construction, so expect some obstacles.

Lackluster
Internet is/was $22 a day with a data limit. Hotel is old and small but still looks nice inside. Rooms are small and bathrooms are tiny. Lumpy bed. Breakfast is available but over-priced. No gym access. They were not very accommodating with regard to booking issues either so all in all, the neighborhood is the best part by far.
