Situated in the heart of Surry Hills, Shakespeare Hotel occupies a great location for nightlife, dining, and trendy shopping.

Disgustingly dirty

The food is good quality
I could talk about the surliness of the staff, being woken up by the so-called cleaners at 6am everyday, the peeling wallpaper, the cobwebs, dirty bathroom tiles, broken taps, or blown lightbulbs but it's the following that makes this place the most abysmal place I've stayed in: On the floor by the bed was a $10 note and a used sanitary towel. The towel was disgusting enough but the $10 is a true testament to the lackadaisical performance of the cleaners.
