Cute and Quaint
The three flights of stairs were a bit daunting with large luggage, however, we were very pleased with the decor and comfort of our room on the third floor. The bathroom was very small, but modern with everything you need. It was fun overlooking the street activity and having great restaurants just steps away from the hotel. It's in an excellent part of town that is convenient, quiet, and felt safe.

Great location and service. Nearby plenty of restaurants bars and a supermarket. Kings Cross train station nearby. Those narrow stairs are a challenge with heavy luggage but I knew that before booking. Only change I’d make is better quality coffee in the room- currently only instant.

Tiny little hotel tucked among small sidewalk cafes in a good location. Walking distance to Botanic Gardens, Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair, and the SydneyOpera House. Manager is very friendly and helpful.
