"Good for public transport, high environmental load"
Our room was spacious, with a balcony that we didn't use because it was dirty and because neighbouring traffic and air conditioners make it so noisy. Cleaners neatened everything up daily. Room sleeps 4 but there are cups and glasses only for 2. Good desk space to work in-room but no quiet business centre outside the room.
Bathroom just big enough but nowhere to hang laundry or wet towels from, so think ahead if you want to use the pool or care about sustainability.
The pool is a good depth for splashing and lounging but not long enough to swim in. Even in hot February temperatures it was heated. And cloudy white. Pool showers grubby.
Rooms have good air conditioning until it occasionally switches to heating. Reception knew about it but had no solution. We woke up really hot a few nights because the air conditioning had switched into heating mode.
Overall the room was fairly quiet but the walls and door are not thick enough to block loud people in the hallways, nor those who make an endurance sport of clearing their sinuses in their rooms. Lots of mucus-athletes with shouting children stay at this hotel. Some sniff, snort and hoick non-stop into full-blast running water for as long as half an hour.
A lot of people leave room service trays in a mess on the corridor floors, where they don't get picked up until the afternoon.
Well connected to Central Station south concourse, Railway Square bus hub, and Darling Harbour via the Goods Line pedestrian walk.

We had an excellent room on the first floor for the first night we stayed.
When we asked if we could have a downstairs room when we returned the next week due to difficulty with stairs, we had no problem getting the booking changed.
When we returned from our cruise to stay the night, we arrived there early, but after waiting a short time for our room to be ready, we could check in much earlier than usual time.
Virginia and staff could not do enough for us.

Well situated with good facilities (pool, gym). 10 mins walk to Redfern Station, 20-30 mins walk to Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, Chinatown etc. We also walked to the SCG from here (45 mins) so, as I say its well located. But in dire need of a decent revamp. Shower over bath - base of bath is orange with presumably rust stain. Kitchen is very basic and cooktop and oven both need replacing. Washing machine also is old, well used and is barely going so it definitely needs replacing. Beds are comfortable, living area good sized. Staff were great - friendly, welcoming and helpful.
