I have stayed for several nights at this hotel as it is convenient if you are taking courses at Landmark Education which is across the street, or want a cheap place to stay while in Sydney. It is a quick walk over the walkway to Darling Harbour and is Convention Centre stop on the monorail and tram. There are good restaurants in the area, as well as small delis and a newsagent - all just up the block. It's more of a pub hotel that a 'hotel' as you might know it.; no en-suites, all rooms are with shared baths. No tubs, just showers. Rooms have small frigs and items for making coffee/tea, so feel free to stock up the frig with snacks, etc. if staying for a couple of days.
Rather rundown and in need of a spruce-up as it is REALLY heavily frequented. Good value if you just want a place to rest your head, but expect no amenities. Rooms are comfortable and basic. Their staff do keep the bathrooms very clean and will clean your room each day unless you choose to have service held until you leave, which I do when I am there. Breakfast is mediocre unless you order the hot food, which you pay for. In the summer, try to book rooms on the lower floors as the third floor gets HOT. Not a lot of cross-ventilation but there are fans in the room and small heaters in winter. If you have no choice and are on a budget, it's OK. Books up fast, as visiting school teams often stay there, and others attending courses nearby stay as well.
Directions: Corner of Allen St and Pyrmont St. It's off the Convention Centre stop on the monorail and tram. If attending Landmark Education courses across the street it's great value for $$ and really convenient!
