The window lacked s screen. So, it was necessary to run the AC continuously to keep the room from getting stuffy and too warm. The owner is a nice man and helpful. The WiFi is free and quite good. The complimentary breakfast was great! But... When I returned from my morning touristing I found that despite my leaving the Do...

Your few good comments have soured what followed. Smoking is prohibited in all parts of hotel and rooms cant stop people from having a drink. We are a family run business that has owned hotel 59 for 18 years. We do not have or use external staff. The owner you describe as "nice and helpful" is me and I am...

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for four nights just after the New Year. We were thoroughly impressed with the communication of the owner, George. Although we did not meet him until the last day (and when we did he was a very nice man and let us keep our luggage there for the day) he was very helpful. The...

Great little hotel in Kings Cross. I stayed over the Christmas/New Year period, which unfortunately meant that room service was limited and the cafe was closed, so I could not enjoy a free breakfast in the mornings! My room was quite small, but clean and comfortable nevertheless. Overall, a nice place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone...

Bays, Owner at Hotel 59, responded to this review

Dear Robert B Thank you for your overall positive review, as explained at time of booking breakfast was not included and there would be limited servicing of rooms over this period. Our rates had been adjusted to compensate for this. Greatly appreciate you recommending us. Regards George

Booked this hotel on after reading the trip advisor comments. Found it to be just as stated . Great value for money . 'Mine host' George was really helpful and the breakfasts were extremely good.

You know this aint a five star hotel, but it was a perfect budget option in a central location.
