Positive Reviews

It's Easy On The Eyes

The accommodation is pristine, the beds are comfortable, and the décor is easy on the eyes. The bed linens are attractive and the hotel has it's own unique style, much different than the usual boring corporate hotel layout. It's a nice place to stay.

Hits The Spot

If location is what you are looking for, this place will hit the spot. Everything you need is within walking distance or a convenient bus ride away. It's right at Kings Cross, so you know what that means. You are near the train station, supermarket, cafes, Botanic Gardens, Bondi Beach, and a whole lot more. It's an all around awesome location and you can't beat the price!

A Staff To Admire

Staff are friendly, attentive, and overall professional. The owners have taken a lot of time to decorate the place and you will definitely notice due to the distinctive touches, like artwork, throughout the hotel.

Negative Reviews

It Can Get Noisy

It can get quite noisy in the area. There is a restaurant downstairs and a small alley so the noise kind of resonates to the rooms.

Larger Would Be Nice

You may find the bathroom a bit small and the room as well. Nonetheless, they are both functional and you should be able to have a pleasant rest.

A Few Necessities Are Missing

There is no elevator, so if you are physically challenged or someone with you is disabled, this might be an issue for you. The stairway is small and a bit tricky to manoeuvre. You won't find a bedside lamp or on-site parking.
