Newly refurbished .. great hotel !

Great stay
I have stayed at this hotel before and found the location to be very good as it is close to darling harbour and china town and the markets. Since I last stayed they have had the hotel refurbished which has made the stay this time even more pleasant. The staff couldn’t be more helpful. I really like this hotel in particular because it’s smaller than most in Sydney and I feel a little more personal because of this.
