8/10 Very good

This is a very OLD hotel ....BUT the rooms are very clean though basic , the shared bathrooms are extremely large and again very clean. Its all about LOCATION for this hotel , it is extremely convenient , right on the city circle train line and very accessable . There are unlimited places to eat all around the hotel. Yes its basic , but staff are friendly , its super clean and extremely well priced for a Sydney CBD hotel. This hotel is like a slice of old Sydney and the hotel accomodations reflect that ....BUT its a good place to stay and enjoy !!
