Good location
It's near to Paddy market and Chinatown . Can buy a lot of cheap Australia souvenirs over there . Also , it's walking distance to Darling harbour . (10 minutes walk ) There is a light rail located Infront of paddy market that takes you directly to Central train station . It's a decent hotel except that the television for one of the channel was not working that well .

A reasonable stay
The rooms were clean however are old and in need of a refurbish. The bed was uncomfortable and leaned to one side. The blinds do not block any sunlight out when shut making it difficult to sleep during the day as we were stopping off for a rest to continue our journey. The staff were very friendly and welcoming upon arrival. Would be ideal to have ample parking which isn't so expensive.
