We stayed here the night before our morning flight departing from the international terminal. The hotel is right across from it. It was only a 10 minute walk from the hotel to our airline's check-in counter. I didn't know how congested Sydney airport traffic had become. The week before, we had to take a taxi from the Sydney CBD to the airport. We spent 15-20 minutes going the last 2-3 kms because of the traffic. The taxi driver said it was usually like that in the early morning because of construction and the amount of flights that take off and land after the curfew ends at 6am. Being able to walk to the terminal instead of nervously waiting in traffic was much better. The rooms are basic but good enough. Our room was clean and comfortable. It was also soundproof, we didn't hear much noise from the airport as we slept. I can't say enough about the convenience of being able to walk to the international terminal and check-in for the flight without being rushed or stressed out from sitting in traffic. It made for a good start to our trip.

Sydney traffic particularly around the airport isn't the best during peak hours so we feel your pain! Glad our location was able to provide you with a comfortable compromise in the morning, krmik! - Ali Ulus | Hotel Manager

This is a smart (newish) hotel right next to the International Terminal. We had a room overlooking the runway which amazingly was not noisy and is great for plane spotters. THe rooms are comfortable and well equipped - although since we had to leave at 4.00 in the morning we didn't get the full benefit!.
Overall it worked very well and was not horendously expensive.

Nice, clean and smart room. Very comfortable bed. Shower was reasonable.
Price was reasonable considering the location (directly opposite International terminal).

Don't bother with upgrading to a higher, runway facing room as we did. Not worth it as there is not balcony, or comfortable position to sit and watch the planes anyway.

The sports bar in the hotel is pretty good. Not much of a night life, but great for a few drinks the night prior to flying out. Food was pretty damn good also.

The staff were very attentive to all aspects of my stay.
After waiting a long 40 minutes at the domestic terminal for the T-Bus, I gave up and called the front desk. They said "No worries. Take a taxi and we'll reimburse you for the ride." And then when I checked in, they upgraded me to a suite. The next morning, focused on the next 2 legs of my trip back to Atlanta, I forgot to pack shirts that I had in the closet. In Dallas I realized my mistake and called them. Amanda, the manger, was great. She said they found them and would mail them to me. This is a level of service you don't always find!

Stayed overnight in a king airport view room , the room was big enough and we loved watching the planes coming and going . The shower was huge and loved the rain shower head . Ate in the sports lounge for dinner and it was great and staff very friendly and had the buffet breakfast the next day which had a huge variety of foods to choose from . Only gripe I would have is the room rate was extremely expensive just for a night , we paid less for a week stay in Thailand then a one night stay in Sydney but cause of the convenience I paid the price . All in all had a great stay and would stay again if not to expensive

Thank you for the fantastic review, Tarz00711. Unfortunately this is a busy time of the year in Sydney and hence why the rates can be higher. Appreciate your understanding. - Ali Ulus | Hotel Manager
