great place but they have no parking. they shouldn't advertise as having parking when they don't, although this was probably the third party web booking service that created this mix up. if you have no car, i recommend this place

Dear X7960IXmichael, Thank you for your review. We do apologise regarding your mix up with parking. We certainly do have an affiliation with a car-park just 200m from the hotel at a discounted rate (upon validation). Unfortunately as with many of the buildings in the CBD parking is limited. We are pleased however that the the hotel was "great" and...

The hotel has a very good location in the city in the chinatown area, with Darling Harbour at a 10 minutes walk and Harbour Bridge / Opera House at a 30 minutes walk. The employees are helpful. We had a great stay.

Great Location especially if you like Chinatown to be close by.Budget place to stay in .Nice n tidy rooms. Only drawback is not spacious but considering the location it's expected. Its better to book in advance as in busy time it can get heavy on pocket as compared to its standard. Overall not bad place to stay.

This hotel is exactly as described. It's neat, very clean, small rooms, great price and very convenient location. Small rooms - yes - but also includes the simple things like shampoos, hair dryer, iron and fridge. Great comfortable beds - King size too.

Nice place, was an easy walk with luggage from Central Station at night. Request for low floor was missed and higher floor assisnged. Not too much of an issue being a low rise building. Room was cleaned and nicely appointed. Staff were good. Easy taxi out the front to the international cruise terminal in the morning.

The hotel is old but clean, with good location, my main issue is the airconds which make very annoying sound even after I requested a room charged. It seems like they need a better airconds....

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
