Convenient location
We were in Sydney for a show at the Capitol Theatre so I chose the hotel because of its location. The trip from airport to hotel was very easy thanks to the L1 Light Rail from Central to the Convention stop across the road from the hotel. The same line took me back to the theatre. It's a fairly easy walk across Darling Harbour to the city but if this is a problem the L1 would link to the the subway or city trams and buses at Central station. We had a loft room which was a surprise and although it was comfortable (excellent bed) and the little living area was good we'd request a one level room next time. The stairs are steep and for we older guests a tad dangerous, especially for a late night bathroom trip. We loved the funky decor and the piped music was a classy change from the usual banal pop eg Frank Sinatra greeted us on arrival and smooth jazz played later during our dinner in the restaurant. The a la carte breakfast was included but it was surprising to discover tea and coffee were charged for separately as extras. We enjoyed our stay and will stay again if attending a show in the area.

My stay was comfortable, but was letdown somewhat by the cleanliness of the bathroom. Considering the price point of the hotel, attention to cleanliness should be a priority.
