Average stay in nice location close to Sydney CBD

"The location was great, but a bit unpleased by the facilities and condition of the room. Based on the price, I would have expected a bit more. There was no wifi, which I find to be an expected requirement in 2017. The room in itself was ok and clean, but not much more to say about it."…"
