Great Southern Hotel Sydney, Haymarket, Australia
Mean practices
I arrived at the hotel at 11 am and requested an early check-in if possible but found that I would be charged $20 for this convenience. I am very unhappy with the hotel and their practices and after staying there frequently over many many years I will not do so again or recommend it to others.

Room is comfortable and very quiet. Great location. Only complaint was that housekeeping attempted to access the room at 9am on the first morning of our stay, despite having the Do Not Disturb activated. They continued attempting access another 2 times, waking us earlier than we had wanted. Luckily we had the door latch engaged. Not impressed with this part of the stay.

Very Good8.0
Historic hotel, with much of its art deco charm retained. The room is small but comfortable, and location is very good, close to the CBD, Chinatown, and right across the street from the Central Station. The free wifi is slow but usable.
