2/10 Poor

On the coldest night of the week, this hotel had the worst air conditioning system - So bad that AFTER FREEZING ALL NIGHT, doing everything TO GET WARM with no success, I left at 5am and went and booked another hotel to get comfortable. I’ve been sick all week due to getting a cold from the hotel. I even tried to make a coffee and there was no milk or sugar! The curtains didn’t block any cold at all and the bed sheets and towels were dirty, not clean and no extras available! Even when checking out, despite the reception desk stating that they are there 24hours, NO ONE WAS AVAILABLE AT ALL AFTER I CHECKED IN

8/10 Very good

The room was a good size but very much in need of a renovation/cleaning. the hotel is in an ideal location, close to China Town, the city, Darling Harbour and public transport. Dixon Street, where the hotel is located is very dirty after hours and early morning.
