Great Value hotel situated just 10 minutes walk from Darling Harbour. Very helpful staff enabled us to drop our bags when we arrived in the morning. Room was on the small side but well furnished. Comfortable bed and nicely appointed bathroom with rain shower made for a very pleasant stay and the convenience of an efficient shuttle bus service to...

Hi Vincent, Thanks for your review. We are pleased to read that our location and rooms were to your liking as with the cleanliness of the hotel. The hotel is a conversion from a post office, rooms are slightly odd shaped, however they are indeed quirky and not one is exactly the same - we do hope you liked heritage...

I stayed here for a week in March for my friend's wedding. The building is older, with a lot of character, but the rooms are very clean and updated.

Reviewed 8 April 2016

PROS: 1)LOCATION:Chinatown near Central Station and lots of good restaurants. 2) ALI and CONNIE-Front desk agents that took customer service to another level. CONS: 1) rooms need to be cleaned better, some rooms are dark, windows don't open. 2) Rooms are OK. This hotel is good if you just need to shower and sleep. Don't expect much at all.

I'll start with the good points. Great shower! And they had my favourite lollies in the fridge. Recently, I stayed a night in this hotel on a credit, granted by management. I was reminded by front of house what a favour they were doing me on arrival. That's called 'rubbing it in' and I was less than impressed. My last...

Thanks for your feedback Dave_Braybrooke, It is disappointing that on this occasion we did not meet your expectations and our gesture of good faith of allowing a credit for a reservation, for your reservation that was cancelled within the notice period of 24hours was "rubbed in" upon your arrival. It is certainly not our intent. I do note upon arrival...

I stayed here after finding a deal online for a single (matchbox) room.

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.
