Plenty of room for us all (three Sisters and our Mum!). Regular clean towels and bedding. All facilities- kitchen, laundry, and shops nearby. Definitely recommend...

Located at George Street in the centro of town with all spots on walking distance. Hotelroom a bit small but comfortable bed. Bathroom small with a mini sink. But ok for a few night citytrip, unless you plan to spend a lot of time in the hotel.

Close to the CBD and Sydney Harbour. The hotel is very nice inside. Air conditioning, spacious bathroom and living area. Staff are more than helpful and there is a nice bar downstairs to have a drink or something to eat before you go out. A very relaxing and comfortable stay. Great value for a hotel so close in the city.

I booked this hotel online for 1 night. Then booked an extra 2 nights online. When we arrived staff upgraded us for our now 3 night stay. Their care and attention continued in many helpful ways throughout. The location was within walking distance to everything we needed. Beds were comfortable. Price was attractive.

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.
