My worst hotel experience ever
Proximity to public transport
I am a frequent traveller. In average I stay in 20 different hotels in different cities each year. Because of my budget I neither stay in luxurious hotels, nor dare to stay in cheap ones. I am not a difficult customer at all, I just expect what I have paid for. Unfortunately, The Bayswater Sydney is by far the most disappointing hotel in that manner and it was the most unpleasant accommodation experience in my life. Since I read complaints from previous reviews about room size, I paid a pretty much more money and booked a "suite" room. One must be ashamed of calling this regular sized room a suite. Old and uncomfortable furnitures, dirty curtains, creaking floor, minibar in the wardrobe(!), no so good working shower, not correctly flushing toilet. And yes, there are also cockroaches on the wall. There is an ancient elevator which takes you to your floor in 10 minutes and its door does not open in 2 minutes. Still I could have given a better rating to this place, but unfortunately their rude and arrogant staff made this impossible. I do not want to give the details, but we had a disagreement with the hotel management and I am completely disappointed about their behavior. Stay away from this place.

Good location, very small but comfortable
Location, comfortable, staff
The hotel: Room is very small and everything is in working order. Unfortunately though, for whatever reason, I received an unpleasant visit from a cockroach on my first night. The little cups of milk for coffee/tea that were replaced on my second day had already curdled. Yuck. Other than that, everything seemed clean and the staff was friendly. The location: the hotel is right by King's Cross station, making it super easy to get around. It's also got plenty of good food options nearby, ranging from cheap to expensive. If having strip clubs right on your doorstep isn't your thing, you may want to reconsider. Otherwise, nightlife is great and you get to see a lot of colourful characters. Overall, all things considered, this is a good and affordable choice for a few nights.

Only if you need to
Location. Security. Clean
I booked this 4 weeks in advance. On arrival I was given 2 level 5. No lift to the floor. I was an international traveller with rather heavy bag. The room was clean. However I felt like I was in a cupboard. For an extra $20 I could have stayed in a better room in the area.

Good location. Spacious room.
Location. Friendly staff. Comfortable room.
Overall comfort is good. However, the walls are very thin. We could hear "everything" that was going on next door. Location is perfect. 2mins walk to kings cross station. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Bed, price, shower
It was fine. The location isn't great; kings cross is a bit out of the way from everything, but aside from that, the room was just fine and the price wasn't bad. Wifi works, but you have to log in every time you use it, which was annoying.

Quality at a reasonable price
Comfortable bed, pleasant decor, great shower pressure
Staff were friendly and the location is ideal if you need to reach the CBD or eastern suburbs. Great cafe next door and the King suite was comfortable and pleasant. Bathroom vanity is way too small and bedside lighting is dim so not good for reading although very atmospheric.
