Great location but...
There's no doubt the Arts Hotel is in a great location and they have free Wi-Fi, discounted food. Unfortunately the room next door was quite loud and I didn't sleep all night. At other hotels you generally can't hear next doors conversations but I could hear word for word what they were talking about. There was some renovation in the room but I did notice that the sliding doors onto the balcony appeared to have no locks despite being on the second level so valuables may have been at risk. An indifferent experience. Compared to other hotels in the area, the Arts Hotel was overpriced. A bit of a let down.

Good place.
Location. Quiet room. Cleanliness.
Stayed there for a business trip. Hotel is a little far from train station. Room is a bit small but pretty quiet at night. Decor is a bit outdated and old but kept pretty clean. They offer around $10 breakfast.

Good room. very comfortable bed.
Close proximity to Hordern pavillion, comfortable bed, had everything we needed.
Nice room, with a comfortable bed and good facilities. I had terrible trouble finding the Hotel because I never been to that part of Sydney and no-one I asked knew where the Hotel was. The parking options are minimal, which I guess is normal for anywhere in Sydney. Would definitely recommend the Arts hotel to friends and family.
