    Found this place whilst staying across the road. Location is easy walk to the City. Great are with an abundance of cafes and Restaurants. Kings Cross station 10 minutes walk. Comfortable room with Bacony but poor water pressure. Value for money in high priced Sydney.

    Hi - its on a small urban urban street and there is NO street parking. There is parking buildings in the area and from memory they have the info on the hotel website. Its a cute hotel and great value for money.
