    Lovely hotel, had a great few days in Sydney, would stay here again. Transport links to other parts of the city were within walking distance, close to the Botanical Gardens and an easy walk to the Opera House.

    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.
