    Good value

    No frills but very comfortable and spotlessly clean, and friendly and helpful staff. Handy location near Elizabeth Bay and the Cross for walking or public transport. Good value.

  • 8.0.Very good

    convenient location WiFi is very poor, next to useless. It should not be advertised as a feature if it is this bad as it annoys people like me that rely on this service for business purposes. It makes the difference to me staying there again.

    I’ve looked at this hotel online several times and always picked another hotel .... never again. This is hands down the best value hotel I’ve stayed at in Sydney ( and I get around). The staff are incredible the view from the Harbour rooms...unsurpassed. Beds incredibly comfortable.. I didn’t want to leave! Great supermarket right across the road.. brilliant options for food and coffee at the doorstep.. and great shopping on the Macleay st strip.. for me the coolest place to stay in Sydney.. and amazing value.. I will never stay anywhere else in Sydney

    Quiet location in east Sydney, easy to access from Kings Cross train station; clean and neat room, slight view of harbour/ the water, adequate toilet facilities (could have had dental kit).

  • 6.0.Good

    Easy parking, reception staff lovely. The room was tired and old with huge chunks of enamel missing from the basin. The view as advertised in the room type booked was of the wall of the building next door covered in scaffolding. For the cost of $168 there are less tired hotels to stay in. Time to renovate

    East access to the places that I want to access. Friendly staffs, and a supermarket across the road for my needs (I used to cook my whole group when I stay in Macleay Hotel). Positive responses from the staff for my enquiries.
