Double Room with Ensuite
Stayed 2 nights in February 2018

Great Location, nice restaurant/bar, minimal room.”

For Sydney, it is one of the best located hotels, one the Rocks, down by the cruise pier and walking around. There are many restaurants, coffee houses, etc. nearby. The restaurant and bar was very good. Make sure you get a room with private bath if that is important to you. The rooms are clean, but minimal. Two towels, two hand towels, no wash clothes, a small bar of soap (the size of a stamp), no tissues, no lotion. Shampoo in shower. It is hard to find anyone at the one desk office as they do many tasks. We stayed twice, but would probably pick someplace else next time.
